Made to Measure Lampshades

Striped lamp shades are always in fashion. While it's hard to remember a time when we didn't love striped material, the bold linear pattern is certainly back in a big way. Thick or thin, vertical or horizontal, stripes are like a magnet for the eyes, becoming an instant focal point.   

Stripes on fabrics are completely timeless and unlike bolder patterned fabrics you will never tire of them. Queen Victoria made them popular, after dressing her son Bertie in a striped sailor suit and this started the connection of stripes with words such as “marine” and “sea”.  While the blue and white striped fabric combo may take us back to summer days at the seaside; the thin black and white striped fabric has a way of transporting us to the cityscape.  Whether you use them in your home in a traditional way or in a totally modern and contemporary way, decorating with stripes is a great way to bring some order to your room.

Which of your stipes can I use for a made to measure lampshade?

My stripes come in all my different colours, I mix Lime green with winter, Teal with Tomato red , Damson pink with Scree grey…and many, many more..

All my striped materials can be used for lampshades: see my different stripes below: Stockholm StripeSimple TickingFrench Ticking and Stripe and Dash. Remember we can make Lampshades  for you in any of our striped upholstery fabrics. I also have a range of woven stripes, woven on hand looms in a beautiful mid weight Linen. These make fresh and pretty lampshades.

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.

Both the colour and fabric of a lampshade influence how it diffuses light.

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.

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.
