All our shades are made with a flame retardant lining which is tested for fire resistance to comply with BS EN 60598-1-2008 - the British Standard for Luminaries, the PVC lining material has been tested in the Lighting Association laboratories and has passed the glow wire test. Fabrics, textiles, paper or plastics that have been laminated to our PVC, become fire resistant
WHY DO YOU ASK FOR LAMPSHADE FITTING ON SOME SHADES?
As our shades fit both table & ceiling fittings we ask for the shade use so we can make sure we can have the pattern of the fabric the correct way up, if you have an arc floor lamp the fitting will need to be at the top of the shade and you will need a ceiling fitting. Plain fabric shades can be used either way round
WILL MY LAMPSHADE BE EXACLTY THE SAME AS PHOTO?
Pattern placement will vary to listing photo, although great care is taken we can not guarantee pattern placement due to wastage
WHY IS THE COLOUR OF FABRIC SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT PHOTO?
Please do not rely on computer screens for exact colours, as different monitor screens will show colours differently to originals colours
CAN YOU MAKE BESPOKE SIZES?
We can make bespoke sizes on our lampshades & cushion covers, we can make most shades up to 60cm wide. Some shades with pattern on website can not be made wider due to width of fabric, please contact us for a bespoke cost
WILL THE LIGHT SHINE THROUGH THE SHADE?
Due to the thickness of some fabrics and inner lining's the light on most of our shade's will tend to disperse from the top and bottom of the shade and not the sides, if your shade has a one of brushed inner linings inside there will/may be a hue of the lining colour. The larger the shade the more light you will have, the glow of the lining colour will be stronger with a smaller lampshade
