In 2018, Dannells Ltd took over Martin Dannell & Co Ltd which was set up by Martin Dannell in 1982 to manufacture materials and provide services to the lampshade industry from its factory in Hackney, London. We moved to a larger factory, our current HQ, in Waltham Abbey, Essex in 2000.
Lampshade Making & Manufacturing
We are passionate about lampshade making because we have been involved in the industry for such a long time, it’s been kind to us (sometimes.) We love the creativity of new designs, interacting with creative people and we also try hard to educate people on how to make lampshades themselves, either to coordinate with their home or for their friends or family or business. To support our makers we have started a very successful forum that offers lampshade makers knowledge, support and inspiration, which you can join here.
Who we work with
We work on many different levels with a wide range of individuals and groups: interior designers, start-up companies, entrepreneurs, schools, workshops, retail and trade who may need some friendly help and advice. We are renowned for and proud of our track record for friendly and informative advice offered to all our customers.
