Favourite Things Friday – Paying it Forward: Hanging Nautilus Lampshades by Designer, Rebecca Asquith

A huge thanks goes to the person/s who forwarded or blogged or tweeted my original Ouroboros ring post. I’ve tried to hunt you down through Google and Feedjit without success. So, whosoever hath spread the word, I am deeply grateful for the traffic you have brought to Kittykatmandoo.

Kittykatmandoo loves you.

And since I’m unable to thank you in person, I’m going to “pay it forward” and, once a month on a Favourite Things Friday, include a post on beautiful creations and their beautiful creators.

So, as I am a girl who goes ‘gah’ over Mandelbrot, Fibonacci and spirals, the first off the rank is Rebecca Asquith’s astounding hanging nautilus lampshades. I want a whole pod of these!

Need I say, these are just amazing; Rebecca uses sustainable materials in her designs (in this case, 100% plantation-grown Australian hoop pine plywood). They’ve been designed so that only low heat, energy-saving lights may be fitted. 
For more information and prices for the nautilus lampshades, and to see a showcase of Rebecca’s other unique designs, please visit
