Margo Popped In...WORKSHOPS!
Margo Popped In
arrives to its audience as a mildly eccentric collection of threads from a past returning to the present. Through a love of texture, colour, print and form, Margo's driving force and creative director, artist Mandy Beall, brings you original fabrics from the last century reclaimed, revamped and restructured as lighting shades for your home, escape pad, office or party.
At Margo Popped In we take pride in knowing our fabrics have experienced a previous era. Be it as curtains hung in a mid century city apartment or a modest but on trend home as a result of a pools win in the late '60's...as we often say...if only fabrics could talk.
HOW WE WORK...
The simple option - take a look in Margo's Shop and select a beautifully crafted vintage fabric light shade that appeals to you and your setting and we shall package it up and send it on its way to you.
The second option - You can't quite see what you are looking for and would like us to help source alternative fabrics - drop us an email. See Margo popped in...Bespoke
The third option - you source the fabrics and we shall do the rest, discussing with you size, style and proposed shade outcome - again, drop us an email. See Margo popped in...Bespoke

MARGO POPPED IN...BESPOKE
Room for a new shade...
we can work it out together.
We've all experienced that sensation when someone enters a room and others feel either at ease or overpowered.
At Margo popped in... we feel this applies with our lighting shade collection. Margo lighting shades can be considered bold and confident...and this may not suit everyone!
A lighting shade is an invited guest but until that guest sits among others we can't say how things will work out.
At Margo popped in... we want to help match you with the ideal shade. You can of course come and visit us; we are based in beautiful South East Cornwall...talk to us and give us some ideas about what you are looking for. Margo of course may be able to pop to you.
Margo popped in...Bespoke is here to help you.
Sourcing vintage fabrics from the UK and beyond selecting names such as Heals and Francis Price...

Thank you, Margo
Delighted with my beautifully made lampshades; they look perfect in my home where the style, despite trying to be fairly minimalistic, is undoubtedly eclectic! The juxtaposition of old and new, in my opinion, creates the ideal ambiance. Although Margo prefers to 'pop in' , her shades are definitely staying! Fantastic customer service too. Many thanks!
Margo is lovely and her work is amazing.
Thank you so much for my beautiful lampshade. Looks equally stylish lit or unlit. Fabulous service, will be back for more!
Great lampshade, Great service!
