Our lampshade frames are made to the lighting industry standard and currently used to make our standard drum, French drum tapered shades, oval, square & rectangle lampshades
Our Lampshade frames fit both standard UK and European Lamp holders, floor lamps or Pendant Fittings
The frame is manufactured to fit European lamp holders, and a Converter/Reducer Adaptor plug is supplied fitted (removable) to reduce the aperture so it can fit UK lamp holders
The lamp holder sizes are - European fitting (40mm) and British adaptor (28mm)

The lamp holder component in the centre of the lampshade sits 4cm up from the bottom of a lampshade for a lamp, or 4cm down from the top of a ceiling pendant lampshade. If you have an arc floor lamp you will need to order your lampshade for a ceiling pendant so the fittings are at the top
Currently our frames will not will not fit on a lamp which requires a lampshade carrier, we are currently working to offer this very soon
Convert standard frame lamp holder fitting into Harp & finial lamp fitting
If you wanted to use our standard frame with a Harp & Finial fitting, you can use our converting washers with our adaptor ( purchased separately) to reduce the hole size/aperture further
Using our converting washer with our standard frames
Converting instructions - Harp & Finial Systems.
- Squeeze the Adapter and install into the centre of the lampshade frame to reduce the aperture.
- Insert a Converting Washer onto the stem of the Harp System.
- Place your Lampshade onto the thread of the Harp System, ensuring the washer fits into the ridge of the Adapter.
- Place the other Converting Washer on top of the Adapter, fit into the ridge, and then screw on your Finial.
- Your lampshade can now be used with Harp Systems
- These washers will only work with our frames/fittings
Converting Washers - 34mm Diameter with 10mm Inner hole - Nylon
There are two standard sizes for Harp systems, 1/4" and 3/8" our converting washers will fit them both. Below is a conversion chart with imperial and metric measurements
1/4" 6.35 mm
5/16" 7.95 mm
3/8" 9.53 mm
Our system works with these sizes, but If the Harp stem is bigger, you can make the hole in the washer bigger to fit
