Just received the shade…it is SO LOVELY, MANY THANKS
We had a new shade made for a lamp purchased in New Zealand some 40 yrs ago. The new shade was the same as the original and looks stunning. The personal service and care taken over the whole order was of the highest standard.
It has arrived. Looks fabulous, so many thanks.
The shade was delivered yesterday. I am delighted with it, you have done a wonderful job.
What can I say – the shades are exquisite and much admired.
I had an original shade from a 1930’s standard lamp made of parchment which had disintegrated and the metal frame was broken. Shades of Elegance were extremely helpful and able to get the frame repaired and obtain some vellum to cover it. The result was brilliant.
Shades are beautiful as ever, the best ones yet. Many thanks.
The shade arrived today and all we can say is beautiful, looks great, we love it.
Very impressed, perfect fit and just what I had in mind. It was worth the wait. Many thanks.
The lining inside my favourite shade had perished whilst the outside was perfect. Shades of Elegance re-lined the shade for me and now it is as good as new again. The service was excellent, I got the shade back exactly on the day estimated. The work is perfect and finished to a very high standard. I would definitely use them again.
Thank you for the time and care spent in selecting samples to meet our request for a sumptuous victorian lampshade, we do appreciate people who go the extra mile.
