A cost effective stylish solution to the chandelier problem

Proper chandeliers are undeniably masterpieces of lighting and have for centuries been the ultimate display of opulence and sophistication. Oversize pieces of magnificent jewellery, original chandeliers are prohibitively expensive to buy, have installed and to maintain. 

Our passion is in the innovation and design of alternative statement piece shades that are specifically designed to draw the eye and demand attention, whatever the size.

Want something different?

The choice is huge, but here are some of our other luxuriously tactile velvet patterns to choose from that are currently in stock.

We can also make lampshades from any specified pattern from any artwork desired to the personalisation with a photograph or other image.

Limited Edition Shades for Sticks & Stands

Limited Edition Small & Medium Shades

Our medium to small pieces are designed to accent-light your space with zing and a unique eye-catching presence. They are mostly one-off shades, with the occasional pair as much of the fabric is only available in very small quantities and sizes. These are no ordinary lampshades and are irreplaceable. Please enquire for more available patterns and options. We have a very large selection of fabrics that are not visible here (yet). The stands are for illustration only.

Up close and personal

It's all in the finish

Uncompromising attention to detail and excellence is at the very heart of everything we do. Our advanced EdgeFlex trim (patent pending) is the first of its kind and is bespoke-crafted for each shade individually. All shades come with a colour coated edge as standard, but for a small additional fee on custom made to order shades can be finished in either our unique soft Velvo finish available in any colour or a 24k base gold or silver leaf.

Creative Illusion

The Floating Diffuser

Suspended with finesse, our unique handmade pure eco-friendly unbleached natural cotton or Washi paper diffusers are attached by a magnet system. We do not use environmentally unfriendly PVC wherever possible, preferring instead the warm aesthetics that a natural and taut fabric gives. All diffusers are treated with a flame retardant and protective coating.

Pricing & Orders

Shipping & delivery

We deliver and fit personally within a 25 mile radius of base in Cambridge. For larger bespoke orders we will extend this to 60 miles and further depending on size and value of order. 

Tracked delivery within the UK is at a flat rate of £12.95 for small and medium shades and £19.95 on larger shades. This also covers the high cost of insurance necessary in the unlikely event of damage. For international orders please email us directly with your address for a quote.

All shades are carefully packaged in bespoke double sided boxes with inserts to keep contents secure from any movement.

Returns and Guarantee 

Returns and exchanges are accepted up to 14 days from delivery in only exceptional circumstances. These shades are bespoke made to order which makes it impossible to undo what is done. In cases where the item has been damaged in transit or for a valid reason hasn't met customer satisfaction then we offer a no quibble return or replacement at no cost. 

We guarantee all of our products for 1 year which covers everything except accidental damage and/or any evidence of poor care. The guarantee is mostly for any issues with the magnetic system which, like the rest of the product is unlikely under normal conditions.  

All shades and diffusers are coated to protect the fabric fibres from absorbing the build up of dirt or moisture and helps with the safe removal of dust with a clean soft damp cloth.
