There have been a few threads recently about custom interiors from the Lotus TrimShop. The premise is to create a repository of pictures and information. There are a lot of people who don't know about this and others who are brainstroming about colors and what looks good. Please add photos/story of your design and final product for others to enjoy. In your post please include:
--Type of material, i.e. Leather, cloth, Alcantara, CF look Leather.
--Panel/stictching color.
--Font/Lettering used in the panel.
I've uploaded scans of the brochure and some pictures to the Gallery under Interior Colors section. Please feel free to add to this thread as you wish and toss me PM's for edits/critiques and suggestions. I'll edit the index post as the thread progresses and people add their work. I've deferred to the owners and have refrained from posting their pictures. This way you can make a post about your setup at a higher info/detail level than I could distilling previous posts linked below. When you do so let me know about it so I can remove the link from this post.
Cheers and enjoy.

Lotus Trim Shop UK website, the pieces are ordered through the US dealers:

There's no real color guide. I asked for swatches once and they laughed. I later saw their sample drawer - they have dozens of colors of leather and alcantara. Although no orange alcantara for some reason...

What did you have in mind?

Are they not doing center consoles in alcantara?

My car is Canyon red. Was thinking about some sort of matching red on sport seats. I thought it would look strange if the interior and exterior reds weren't close.

Gotcha. Yeah, we handled that concern on another customer's car by just going with red stitching on black seats.

Do we get to pick the pattern of the stitching as well? I.e. diamond vs. whatever the 05 was called. I personally think that the diamond pattern is too cluttered, specially for the brighter colors, but in green or blue it might look good.

Robert, I have the OE tan leather interior, but the shift and brake boots are black leather. I assume we could use this program to convert those pieces to the OE tan used in the seats/doors?

I'm sure they can get it. They actually bought a special piece of red Alcantara just to do trims for my car...

I suggest that pictures of people's interior mods including Lotus trim ship options and products be posted to the Gallery under Technical Image Resources (interior mods). This thread is useful but one place for pics would be helpful aswell.

Indeed, that is my intent as noted in the first post. I linked to some pictures but defered to the owners to post their car in the gallery.

Robert, you can get carbon leather wherever you want correct? I'm thinking of alcantara inserts like these seats, and wherever there is leather do carbon leather.
