We are a small company, designing and making lamps and lampshades (and a few other things) sustainably and ethically in the UK. We place great emphasis on quality, detail and providing unique pieces you won't find elsewhere. Our lampshades come in a wide range of plain coloured linens, unusual patterns and other materials and all our products are made by a group of skilled and inspirational crafts people with decades of experience, some in their 80s. We sell to retail and trade, undertaking large and small projects. If you can't find what you are looking for on our site we offer a bespoke service. We have extensive technical and design knowledge, can recover old shades, make just about any shape from scratch and are up for a challenge.
Have a look at our Size and Shape Guide or if you would find it easier to try some combinations, you are very welcome to visit us in our Studio or we can run consultations via Zoom. Email or ring to arrange a time.READ MORE
We have found that matching a shade to a lampbase can be difficult. Have a look at our Size and Shape Guide or if you would find it easier to try some combinations you are very welcome to visit us in our Studio. We have a large source book of different materials. Email or ring to arrange a time before you come.
If your lampshade is to hang as a ceiling light we make it with a pendant fitting at the top of the shade. Otherwise, we will make it in our standard way with what’s known as a duplex fitting. This then sits on a shade carrier, fits all standard and table lamps and allows you to adjust the height of the shade to suit your base. So for ceiling light, please choose CEILING and for standard and table lamps please choose LAMP BASE FITTING
The exception to this is if you choose a small lampshade for a lamp base when we use a fixed fitting at the bottom of the shade. Because the shade is relatively small, we think this looks better. This will be automatically adjusted when you order but if you have any queries or are unsure about anything, don’t hesitate to email or give us a ring, 07790 527 594 / 07968 103985
This drum is a little longer than many you will find in the shops and as such has a more contemporary and unusual look. It suits both table and standard lamp bases and works very well as a ceiling light.
Another classic design which lends itself to most lamp bases. We have experimented with a number of similar shapes and think that the slope of its sides is just about right.
A more contemporary take on the French Drum, this shape has steeper sides for a more modern look.

Our candle shades come as 3/4 cones or full cones. If your light is fixed close to the wall or the sconces are close together, 3/4 cones work perfectly.
