The Royal Opera House

A Shade Above have worked with the Royal Opera House twice over 20 years to remake the lampshades across the venue. The signature shades in the auditorium are gathered in a red silk habotai with a braid detail and have to be tough to withstand constant use and also accommodate a special fitting to allow the bulbs to be changed – no mean feat with 480 shades in the auditorium alone! The foyer lampshades vary from delicate shield wall lights to small cream silk empires and when Royals attend there are even a set of cream shades for the Royal box and VIP areas.
