Detola and Geek

Handmade lampshades, homeware & Gifts, infused with African vibes.

Detola & Geek is an award-winning homeware & lifestyle brand infused with African vibes and handmade in Britain.

Tola Laseinde is the designer/maker behind the vibrant lampshades, homeware & gifts all made by hand from her home studio in Letchworth, Hertfordshire.

My African inspired lampshades are my signature line and seem to be gaining quite a reputation. They are slowly becoming a movement (in my head). These vibrant designs maybe bold, geometric, retro, tribal, botanical, mid-century modern & sometimes geeky too!

My customers don’t hold back, hear what some of them have to say ….

THANDA Lampshade

“Absolutely love the lampshade - it's well made and looks beautiful - thanks for the quick delivery.” ~ D.Skelter.

JEMILA Cushions

“I love my African pillows. I have received many comments already. Thank you for a job well done. They arrived timely and packaged well, great artisan.” ~ D. Skelter

OYIN Lampshade

“Thank you so much for our beautiful bespoke lampshade. It is absolutely stunning. Such amazing craftsmanship, I couldn't be happier. Thank you also for your wonderful customer service and quick delivery, especially around Christmas. I'll be back for more of your handmade treasures.” ~ Little Nomad.

DUNNI Lampshade

“This lampshade fits perfectly with my mid-century floor light. Love the texture and African print. Gives an earthy rosy glow when lit- soft and warm.” ~ S.A.

These African inspired handmade products are a quick & easy way to inject splashes of colour into your spaces.

Quite functional & very trendy too. These bold & bright designs always get the conversation started. Right?

Detola & Geek won Theo Paphitis’s (ex-Dragon, Dragon Den) Official “Small Business Sunday” award in Sep 2016.

I take on bespoke orders & commissions as well as welcome collaborations with other talented designer-makers.
