Made to Measure Lampshades

What plain fabrics do you recommend for lampshades?

We offer plain linen union fabrics which are perfect for making lampshades, in many beautiful different colours. 

You can buy our fabrics in 50cm increments and make you own lampshade or use our made to measure service and we will make one especially for you through our made to measure service.

Stylish, modern and utterly versatile, our Plain linen unions fabrics, work perfectly in their own right, as well as coordinating with any of our printed fabrics and wallpapers.

For Plain lampshade fabric made in the UK choose from the selection of colours, from neutrals to softer shades of washed colours such as Duck Egg and Pigeon, sophisticated shades of grey such as Dove, Scree and Charcoal and brighter signature accents such as Sweet Pea and Saffron. They are suitable for any interior, from homes to hotels.

Our Plain fabrics are made from a linen and cotton blend:  40% Linen and 60% organic cotton. The cotton gives the extra strength and a degree of flexibility. The Plain Linen Unions are a medium weight and have a good rub test.

You need to choose the best colour for your lampshades by considering the way the room faces, the amount of light you get and the atmosphere you want to create.  Do you want a light and airy room or are you trying to create a warm and cosy scheme?

Think about using a contrasting colour for lining the inside, to add some interest, for instance a Sweet Pea Pretty Maids lined with a Stockholm Stripe in Sweet Pea.

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, empire and drum and several sizes. You can choose a second fabric to line the lampshade and choose a diffuser if you wish to hide the bulb.

All my printed fabrics work well with the Plains, the colours are designed to match and coordinate, and for instance the subtle shade of Clay in my printed fabrics matches the Plain Clay Linen Union.

Please ask for fabric samples and see the colours in your rooms. If you order a half metre returnable sample you can pin it to your present curtains and see how it looks. All our fabrics are printed in the UK on a good weight of 100% Linen and Linen Union making them suitable for lampshades, curtains, blinds, cushions, and upholstery. We hold a good stock of all our fabrics ensuring delivery is usually within 3-5 working days with an overnight service available. The same team, who take you order will roll, inspect and cut it, so accuracy and quality can be assured.
