Frequently Asked Questions

Are your lampshades tested and safe?

Absolutely! Our lampshades are made using a fire retardant lining and have passed the glow wire test carried out by the lighting association.

What type of bulb should I use?

We recommend using LED bulbs and maximum of 40 watts.

They are more energy efficient which is far better for the environment. They also last longer too.

What type of fitting do your lampshades have?

The lampshade bottom ring sits 4 cm from the bottom of the lampshade. This is a fixed ring that doesn’t move so its essential to make your selection as to which type of fitting you require before you check out by choosing either a lamp base fitting or a pendant ceiling lampshade.

Our lampshades will work with a UK B22 or a European E27 holder.

They have a reducer ring, which can be removed for a European fitting.

Do you supply free fabric and lining samples?


What do your measurements mean?

Example 20 cm x 15 cm x 30 cm = Base diameter x top diameter x height

Are your lampshades available in any other shapes and sizes?

Yes we can make in lots of different shapes, far too many to include them all in our shop so if you’d like a particular size or shape then please get in touch.
