Traditional Lampshades . . . it's what we do . . . . .

Our standard range of traditional lampshade shapes are available in sizes from candle lamp shades to table lampshades up to traditional standard and  floor lamp shades. All of these traditional shapes can be covered in your own combination of fabric and trim taken from our lamp shade swatch.

Our traditional swatch includes cotton dupion, moire, floral prints and the finest silk dupions and is complemented with fringe, braid, soutache and rope trims. Please get in touch to request any free swatch samples.

If you cannot find your perfect combination of traditional fabric and trim from our own swatch then you can supply your own giving you a truly one off lampshade. 

The method used in manufacturing our traditional lampshades has hardly changed over the past 5 decades. A traditional fabric panel is cut and hand stretched over a rigid wire frame, this is then either hand stitched or glued in place and an optional fabric lining then added to the inside of the traditional lamp shade. Finally the traditional shade is finished with a trim top and bottom, we can also add more detail with a piping or fringe finish. 

Examples of our traditional lampshades can be found across the UK from residential homes through to hotels, cruise ships, and National Trust properties.
