Cork Tapered Drum Lampshade
Every Munro and Kerr lampshade is made to order and by hand to your requirements in our south London studio.
Our cork is a naturally available material that is grown in managed forests in Portugal. Cork oaks are harvested every nine years, once they have reached maturity.
Cork production is generally considered sustainable because cork bark regrows. Harvesting and stripping the cork doesn't involve cutting down or harming the tree. Cork is now enjoying a welcome surge in popularity as design and environmentally conscious customers appreciate its versatility and tactile and aesthetic qualities.
We have been searching for a cork to craft our lampshades with for a while now, and we are delighted to be able to offer this new product to you. The cork has been laminated to a clear PVC, and provides a wonderful warm and comforting glow when lit.
The specialist PVC linings we use to create our lampshades have all passed the glow wire test carried out by the Lighting Association. They are flame retardant, UV stable (doesn’t discolour over time) and have also been anti static treated (minimising the attraction of dust).
The colour of the lampshade frame will be white.
All our bindings are made from 100% cotton with a herringbone weave.
We offer a choice of coloured trim as standard; white, natural, navy, black and red, but as part of our bespoke service we can offer a larger variety for an additional cost.
If you are unable to find the exact shape, size or trim that you are looking for, please take a look at our bespoke lampshade making service.
We are able to work with you to help source alternative papers, colours, trims, linings and sizes to suit your interior scheme.
