Customers Own Material Tapered Empire Lampshade

£25.00

Every Munro and Kerr lampshade is made to order, and is made by hand to your requirements in our south London studio. 

We can make most papers, wallpapers and fabrics into lampshades, which is perfect if you cant find what you are looking for on the high street, and want to give a bespoke feel to your interior project!

Lighter weight fabrics (cottons, silks, linens) work best on lampshades as thicker fabrics (velvet) are difficult to work with and it may be not be possible. If you are unsure if your fabric is suitable, please send us a sample or photograph and we will be able to confirm for you.

Plain, smaller patterned, or larger random patterned fabric and papers work best on tapered lampshades, whilst larger geometric patterns work best on drum lampshades.

Once you have placed your order with us, we will send you an email confirming the dimensions of the material and where to send it. We advise you send via recorded (signed for) delivery, this is done at your cost and risk.

For all papers and wallpapers please send them to us rolled in a tube and not folded, as we will not be able to remove the creases. Fabrics can be sent folded or sent on rolls if needed.

Any outer material that has been sent to us which is left over from making your lampshade will be returned to you along with your finished lampshade.

Linings

The metallic linings have been created so that no light travels through the lampshade, this means the colour of the lining does not alter the colour and pattern on the outside of the lampshade when lit.

Alternatively, the white PVC lining will allow an amount of light through the shade, creating a warm glow when lit and highlighting the colour and pattern on the outside.

The colour of the lampshade frame will be matched to your lining choice.
