Please note that we only able to recover “Soft Shades” so your lampshade structure must be rigid. It must also have metal struts holding the top and bottom rings together and be in a reasonable condition in order for us to work with the frame. Please click HERE to visit our lampshade recover page.

Soft Shades v's Hard Shades

In the world of fabric lampshades there tends to be two main categories that they fall under.

Traditional or soft shades as they are commonly known are lampshades with a rigid wire frame that fabric is stretched over, hand stretching the fabric was own the first fabric lampshades were made and still is today.

Modern or hard shades see's the fabric laminated to a stiff backing in most cases PVC or card. Once laminated the fabric is rigid enough that it can be formed to a top and bottom shade ring and self support its shape. As the fabric doesnt rest on a frame the shape looks a lot smoother and when lit you do not see shadows through the fabric from the lampshade frame so looking more modern in style.
