Modern Standard Lampshades

Modern standard lampshades also known as hard shades due to the PVC backing that the fabric is laminated to come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and suite both traditional and contemporary floor lamps. Your standard lamp shade can be made in any of our 300 plus stocked fabrics, including Linen, Cotton, Parchment and the finest Silk Dupion.

Our most popular shape of standard lamp shade is the drum. The simplistic shape makes it the perfect standard lamp shade for modern and traditional standard lamps. If considering a drum standard lampshade we offer various styles to best suit your standard lamp, these include our standard drum as well as thin drum, tall drum and French drum.

When considering which size or style of lampshade to choose for your standard lamp we recommend cutting a rough template of the shape to scale, holding this next to your standard lamp will act as a good visual aid to insure your select the correct size standard lampshade for your standard lamp. 

To further customise your modern standard lamp shade we can use customers own fabric or digitally print any design directly to your standard lampshade.

Standard Lampshade Recovers

Our standard lampshade recovering service is particularly useful if you have a standard lampshade with sentimental value or an unusual fitting. Most standard lampshades that we recover tend to be for lamps that have been purchased abroad. A lot of Asian floor lamps tend to have what is known as an American fitting which in laymen’s terms is a small polo mint hole situated towards the top of the lamp shade.

We recover both traditional and modern styles of standard lampshades, please get in touch to discuss your standard lamp recover in person.
