As they create many one-off lampshades, they have a vast catalogue of past projects that are no longer for sale.

It seemed a shame to let these fantastic lampshades go unseen, so we created an image gallery they can add to.

As there is lots of images for the gallery, we used AJAX to load only a select few to begin with. Users can choose to load the next batch of images whenever they like. This keeps the page loading quickly while giving the users choice about how many images they want to see.

The Oohlalalampshades eCommerce website design home page has a link to the shop page along with an area for showcasing the most popular products available.

The product pages feature a clear “Add to “basket” button as well as an option for customers to use PayPal to checkout. We also included an image gallery for each product so customers can view high quality photos to get a feel for it.
