Custom Order Lamp Shades

All our lamp shades are handmade by us in-store and we are more than happy to work with you on custom orders.  We make straight sided shades (drum or cone) but are unable to help with scalloped, stretched or panelled shades (if you aren't sure - we're happy to discuss).  We are also often able to recover your exisiting shade frames if you'd like to keep the size and shape.

In this collection, you will find images of the fabric we have available to make up into shades.  We can also make shades in your own fabric, or you are welcome to source suitable fabrics for your décor.  We are unable to source fabric for customers.

Shades can be made out of most fabric types - but we would recommend steering away from anything with too much stretch, or any thick tapestry type fabric.  If you are unsure, you are welcome to pop in or call up for a chat, or bring fabric in to show us.  We can also confirm how much fabric you will need for the shade size you want.  

If you have an existing lamp, sometimes the best way to choose a new shade for it is to bring the base in.  We're happy to show you all the different sized shades available and then help you choose the fabric that suits your requirements best.  All of our fabrics are in store to look at more closely and we have fabric sample books for you to look through also.

If you have an existing shade that you would like to upcycle - in most cases, we can do that too.  Provided your existing shade has flat sides (a straight side drum shade or tapered shade are two examples). we can strip and recover the frame for you.  We are unable to recover any panelled (with vertical bars) or scalloped shades.  if you are unsure, just ask.

Our shade sizes start at 20cm wide ($80)  and go up to 60cm wide ($140).  There is a $10 saving for using your own fabric.  Heights can be as requested or we can recommend a height suitable to the shade size.  We can do ceiling shades and also add a diffuser if required.  


As each lamp and shade varies in size & weight, there is not a one-size-fits-all freight for lamps (which is why our online lamps are listed as pick up in store only), but shot us an email at if you'd like a freight quote on a lamp.  We just need to know which one (or if it's a custom shade, which size) and a postcode and we'll get back to you ASAP.  For reference, lamp shipping is usually approx. $35-$50. 

If you live local and can't get in store, we do offer free delivery on lamps within 3km of the store, just note that you'd like delivery at check-out.
