The creative talent behind TMO Lighting is Helena Barrowcliff. After training in Textile Design at Central St Martin’s, Helena enjoyed a successful career in the spheres of fashion and interior design. As an interior designer, Helena’s focus was drawn to lighting. In the design process of a room, how it is lit is paramount to its beauty. Helena believes that lighting should always be interesting, inspiring and integral to the overall design of a room. Failing to find shades which fitted with that belief, she created her own and so in 2008, TMO Lighting was born.
Helena has drawn upon her many years of experience to develop and cultivate innovative techniques to create these distinctive shades. With her exceptional eye and understanding for colour Helena will ensure that your shade will bring together or highlight focal points in your room.
Helena designs and hand paints each piece, creating genuine works of art which just happen to be on a lampshade! Her work has been recognised by journalists and stylists, and regularly features in magazines.
Helena treats every commission individually, and deals directly with the customer. She takes the time to understand your requirements and desires. Sometimes using an existing much loved piece as a base for her creation, others simply drawing upon the colours and feel of your room to bring harmony and beauty to your lighting. You can be sure that a shade from TMO Lighting will give you a unique and bespoke piece of art which is not only complementary to your interior, but functional too.
