The Duchy of Cornwall Nursery offers a first-class selection of garden plants, an award-winning café and a sumptuous shop.   The garden and gift shop, housed in a wonderful cob building with its high-beamed oak ceiling. The shop décor is an eclectic mix of recycled lighting, unusual old cabinets, dressers and furniture, all creating a relaxed atmosphere and style, highly conducive to browsing and purchasing.

Artenax support British Design, and independent designers producing contemporary high-end interior products. They are interested in those who experiment with different mediums, and encourage upcycling and sustainability.  “Artenax is affordable ‘cool’, imaginatively created, and some pieces are works of art in themselves”.   Visit the Topsham store, Exeter to see original and colourful, comtemporary furnishings you will love, and inject some fun and colour into your life!

Bay Design is now featured in the December issue of Cornwall Today.

We had a fabulous day setting the table and living room ready for an albeit early Christmas, featuring our Crawford Velvet Lampshades as central decoration on the dining table.  

The feature within the magazine Cornwall Today gives a lovely insight into our move to Cornwall and my business Bay Design Ribbon Lampshades, available at all good newsagents!

ITS A CORKER!   September 2018

Natural Cork ribbon lampshade. www.bay-design.co.uk


The lamp shades are handmade in Cornwall from sustainably sourced oak cork bark onto a unique British made tapered drum frame.  They are available in five sizes to fit candle shades, table lamps, pendant lights and standard lamp bases.

Perfect for summer evenings.  Evocative of long days spent on the sea shore or whiling away the time on the river bank.   Two new shade designs to our Mansfield collection include Fish and Shell trims.  Fabulous detailing, hand printed in the UK.
