Made to Measure Lampshades

What shape of lampshade should I choose for a dining room?

Empire shades illuminate mostly from the bottom, while drum shades provide a medium amount of light from both ends. Light coloured shades are best at lighting an entire room, while darker ones tend to funnel the light and make a more dramatic statement.  

A dining room is the place where you can make a more dramatic statement. A low hung darker shade funnelling the light down onto the table would be really stunning. The choice of fabric obviously depends on your décor, but we have plethora of colours to choose from. A large low hung drum shade with a diffuser if you wish to hide the bulb would be a good choice.

Which of your fabrics make good made to measure lampshades for a dining room?

My fabrics such a Pretty Maids and May Blossom suit being made into lampshades, being multi directional all over dotty prints.

Stripes such as Stockholm Stripe and French Ticking make very bold, smart and striking made to measure lampshades for dining rooms.

What colours would you choose for a lampshade in a dining room?

I would favour warm colours for dining room walls, curtains and lampshades, such as Damson, Terracotta, Peach and Raspberry.

Each bespoke lampshade is beautifully made in our local workshops by professionals, hand finished with great care and attention. Our makers use traditional methods and take a real pride in what they do. With made-to-measure, there is no need to compromise; you can create a unique look with your choice of fabric and those important finishing touches that will complement and co-ordinate your home. There are two shapes to choose from and several sizes. You can choose a second fabric to line the lampshade and choose a diffuser if you wish to hide the bulb.
