Bespoke Design Experience

A new & exclusive LUH offering. Work one on one with Vanessa to create bespoke lampshades perfectly suited to your home or commercial space.



Crafting a beautiful room is more than collecting mere objects. It’s looking at ways to make  joy manifest; helping to create homes to linger in and environments to inspire. A way to make a house a home - a place that truly reflects and embodies those who love and live there. 

Vanessa has always adored texture, colour and light. The mother of three and merino and broadacre producer is drawn to the way a gorgeous pillow or a splash of bold colour can spark joy and lift a space. While riding the farming rollercoaster - droughts, floods and pandemics alike - her creativity offers her both solace and nourishment.



Femke Textiles is the handiwork of Melbourne based designer Simone Deckers, and was established in 2014 on completion of her training at RMIT. 

Simone's designs begin as hand drawn sketches and end up on large screens that are hand-pulled at her River Studios in West Melbourne.

Femke Textiles draw inspiration from the Australian bush and its diversity of colour, texture and shapes. Simone has many fond memories of bushwalking and camping trips with her family and the love for the Australian bush and flora was born there. 

Lovely words from our customers

I recently ordered a vintage lamp from you and a custom lampshade. The lampshade arrived today and I could not be happier with it, I also absolutely love the vintage lamp. I am so pleased I found your shop and purchased these beautiful pieces! Hopefully I'll find an excuse to order more soon.

My beautiful lampshade arrived today with your lovely handwritten card! I was so excited to open the box!! Here are a couple of pictures of it in its new home. The reinventing of this room from a flown-the-nest daughter's bedroom to a library/napping/cosy sitting room has been a labour of love that is filled with treasures belonging to my late Mother and Grandmother as well as new pieces and fabrics. Thank you so much for adding another ray of sunshine to my happy place.
