Double Sided Lampshades

Our stunning double-sided lampshades are our unique speciality when it comes to lighting. They feature a stylish patterned fabric lining with a solid colour fabric outer. You can combine any of our patterns with any of our outer colour options, this gives you a huge selection. We’re sure you’ll find one to please.

These lampshades are circular drum in shape (I.e. the top & the bottom diameters are the same). Our double-sided lampshades are perfect for ceiling lights where you’ll be able to admire both layers of fabric with ease.

Depending on the selection of fabrics, some double sided lampshades produce a silhouette effect when lit. This completely transforms the look of the lampshade & your room. It’s like having two different lampshades. The silhouette effect is best displayed on dark patterned linings with light coloured outers.

Single Sided Lampshades

Our stylish single sided lampshades are a more traditional style of lampshade, featuring a beautifully patterned outer fabric & a solid white PVC lining.

These lampshades are circular drum in shape, meaning that the top & bottom rings have the same diameter. The PVC lining is quite reflective, making this type of lampshade an excellent choice for a functional table lamp.

Silver Birch Empire Lampshade, Scandinavian Style

Empire Lampshades

Our beautiful empire lampshades are a modern twist on a classic shape. Our empire lampshades are single-sided, meaning they have the patterned fabric on the outside and a solid white PVC lining. An empire shade has a narrower top ring, producing a conical shape.

The stylish patterned outer fabric replaces the typical single solid colour used for empire lampshades. Our empire shades are perfect for breathing new life into standard lamps, though the smaller sizes can also be used on table lamps.

3-Tiered Lampshade

Our bold 3-tiered lampshades feature three single-sided circular drum lampshades in reducing sizes. The largest shade, at the top, is 40cm. The middle shade is 30cm, and the bottom one is 20cm. We like to offer these shades with the central shade being patterned, and the two other shades being a solid colour. 

The inside of each tier is a solid white PVC, perfect for reflecting light throughout the shade. We offer two sizes, a deep drop which is best for rooms with high Victorian style ceilings, and a shallow drop for more contemporary height ceilings.
