Our Story – Lumiere Shades

Our Story

AT THE HEART OF OUR BEAUTIFUL HANDMADE CREATIONS IS, COMMUNITY.

Lumiere shades are uniquely and lovingly handmade by a gorgeous Balinese family, perfectly encapsulating the essence of our why, with our how. This takes time and meticulous craftsmanship.  
Creating our shades in Bali one step at a time, with hands not machines, means that no two Lumiere shades are exactly the same. Just like no two members of our Community or our customer base, are the same.  We are proudly original, just like you!

 

OUR FOUNDER

Wendy is the Founder of Lumiere Shades. With a background rich in international travel and having worked for some of the world’s leading interior brands, Wendy found her true design voice when she moved from Melbourne to Bali with her young family 3 years ago. Inspired by the tropical climate, the abundance of original materials and the soft, warm, welcoming Balinese culture, she began to see life differently. 

Pairing back traditional design concepts, Wendy has always been drawn to under-stated simplicity where the practical elements are just as important as the visual. The result – Lumiere Shades was born.  It’s a softer glow, a smoother feel, and a one-of-a-kind product. Perfect! And did we mention Wendy is all about Community? It’s at the heart of everything she does, personally and professionally nothing is more important.
