Made to Order Lampshades Sizes and Styles

Check out our bespoke made to order lampshades available as part of our made to measure service we can make drum, empire and candle shades for ceiling lights and standard lamps.

It’s amazing how just one large drum lampshade, can create such a dramatic visual effect in room, especially a living room or kitchen. Look here at all the different lampshades we have made for these rooms and you will see what I mean.

We make made to order fabric covered lampshades in the following sizes:

Small: 20cm diameter

Medium: 30cm diameter

Large: 40cm diameter

Extra large: 50cm diameter

Height: They can be made from 20cm up to 40cm high, increasing in increments of 5cm.

This photo from our shop, gives you lots of ideas for using a second fabric to jolly up the inside of the lampshade!

Whilst reorganising and redecorating my kitchen (do have a peep at my Instagram to see how it is going!), I have taken inspiration from the following quotes.


‘”As we evolve our homes should too.”

Suzanne Tucker (Interior Designer).

The details are not details, they make the design.”

Charles Eames (Furniture Designer).

Design is getting to grips with one’s real lifestyle, one’s place in the world. Rooms should not be put together for show but to nourish one’s well being.”

Albert Hadley (Interior Designer).

Have nothing in your house which you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.

William Morris (Textile designer).


Research has shown that being creative helps you become a better problem solver in all areas of your life and work.

Creativity helps you see things differently and better deal with uncertainty.

Studies show that creative people are better able to live with uncertainty because they can adapt their thinking to allow for the flow of the unknown.

So why not get going…it can be anything at all from gardening to cooking, sewing, writing, crafting, drawing or painting, and see how you feel. I believe it’s important to get out of your head into your hands.
