We recover most styles of lampshade so if you have a lampshade that has seen better days we can recover in any combination of fabric and trim from our swatch or in your own fabric if you prefer.
We have been recovering lamp shades from our Devon work shop for over 50 years. Every recovered lampshade is made by hand from start to finish.
You will find our lamp shade recovering service invaluable if you are struggling to find the perfect replacement lampshade for your table or floor lamp.
Recovering your lampshade can also be a cost effective solution to insuring your lampshade matches a new decor.
Soft Shade Recovers
Soft shade recovers are the most popular lampshades that we recover. Also know as traditional lamp shades they have a rigid wire frame that the outer and inner fabric is stretched over.
Providing your lampshade frame is in good condition it should be possible for us to re-cover for you.
We recover a lot of lampshades that have been purchased as a complete lamp set, quite often from Asia or America. It is usually necessary to recover these lampshades due to them having a different fitting to most UK lampshades, the most popular being what is know as an American fitting, which looks like a polo mint size fitting that sits towards the top of the lamp shade.
Hard Shade Recovers
When it comes to recovering hard shades we can offer two methods for restoring your lampshade.
Providing the lampshades top and bottom rings are in reasonable condition and not to out of shape we can strip and recover the shades in any of our own fabrics or customers own if preferred. We offer a selection of inner linings options from white through to various metallic options.
If it is not possible to recover your lampshade we do have the facility to replicate the shade from scratch, a lot of the lampshades we recover tend to have been damaged in a house move or a stray football when looking after the grand children !
