Frequently asked questions

What guidelines do you offer for choosing the right sized lampshade?

When choosing a lampshade it needs to align with the size of the base. You want to maintain a sense of balance. Each stand is unique as is each shade so we need to measure the base and then a general rule of thumb is to make the lampshade at least half and inch wider than the widest part of any base. Also it is important to know where the lampshade is going to be positioned as you will choose narrower designs in areas of high traffic to avoid accidents.

What is the length of time that it takes to make a Lampshade?

Each order is unique and therefore so are the timings. Depending on the scale of the job and availablity of fabrics and materials, a usual amount of time is anything up to two weeks of receiving your order. If we require to order in fabrics then this may affect delivery of the order. We aim to avoid any unneccessary delays and will always keep you advised of progress.

What is the best method to clean a lampshade?

Use a soft, clean and dry cloth like champois or soft cotton. Gently brush of any dirt. It is preferable not to use a vacumn or bristly brush especially if it is of a delicate material.
