Bespoke Lamp Shades
Unlike the choice of lampshades available in the shops, Changing Views is able to design and make bespoke lampshades which match the style of your rooms. As the lampshades are bespoke, we will select the right diameter and depth to suit the ceiling height and the dimensions of the room and the light fitting. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right fabric is the amount of light required from the completed lampshade. Lampshades can be handmade for ceiling lights, standard and table lamps.
There is a vast choice of fabric suitable for use with lighting. We recommend using a lightweight fabric such as cotton or silk, or a fabric with some texture for a more modern look. Whether you choose a floral fabric or a strong geometric or striped fabric, we will discuss the most appropriate shape. We are able to make lampshades in different shapes – coolies, drums, conical, or square – and ensure that that the fabric is suitable for use with lighting.
As with our handmade cushions, the lampshades we make can be finished with braid, beading, and a whole host of fringes.
