These are some of our favourite materials for a Gathered French Drum. The material sits beautifully on the frame. It isn't too thick or too thin and gives out just the right amount of light. Click on the swatch to order.
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.
