Melody Ryder Designs

Melody Ryder was born in Cornwall and grew up as part of a creative family. It was almost inevitable that she would go on to study textiles, graduating in 2003. It wasn’t until quite a few years later when her first daughter was born that she really found her niche in creating freehand machine embroidered designs.

Melody Ryder’s lampshades incorporate simple, elegant designs inspired by the coastal landscapes, footpaths and gardens from around West Cornwall. Her vision is to create beautiful and functional pieces for everyday use.

She adores living in Cornwall with her husband, three children and two dogs – Ruby the Collie Springer and Dottie the Chihuahua cross.
