Shades of Elegance specialise in custom designed lampshades handmade in the UK using traditional methods. Every lampshade is handcrafted with care and attention to each detail to ensure the highest level of quality and finish. Whether you want decorative, period, traditional or thoroughly modern lampshades we can help you.
For more than 20 years we have been creating bespoke lampshades for individual customers, interior designers, country houses, museums, hotels and restaurants, and we work closely with antique lighting specialists to re-create period shades.
We offer a wide choice of colours in silks, brocades, moirés and dupions which we combine with luxurious trims, fringing, tassels and beading, designed to produce unique and decorative lampshades. We also offer a unique collection of vintage trimmings allowing us to re-create an original lampshade. We can also make a bespoke lampshade in your own fabric to complement or co-ordinate with other furnishings.
For contemporary settings we create modern ‘ hard’ shades in straight, paneled and cylinder designs by laminating fabric on to a hard backing.
We offer a re-covering service for both hard and soft lined lampshades using either your own material or one chosen from our selection of fabrics, plus a renovation and recovering service for old and antique lampshades.
