Lamp Shades

A lampshade is important not only for shading the eyes from the glare of the bulb but to direct light and create ambience. Our collection of empire and drum shades come in a range of linen fabrics designed to complement the other elements of the room. The base width of your shade should be three-quarters of the height of the lamp base and slightly wider – except in the case of a tall thin lamp which can take a smaller shade. Translucent shades in lighter colours like oatmeal are best for reading and lighting up a dark corner, while our dark opaque shades accentuate the lamp base and create drama by directing pools of light upwards and directly beneath.
