Our shades are made using a high quality flame retardant PVC and an extensive range of sumptuous fabrics and wallpapers. Our lampshade frames are made with a 39mm European ring fitting with a 29mm UK reducing ring already fitted that will pop in and out if needed. Meaning all lampshades are suitable for both UK or European lamps or flex and fittings.
Please Note: Our lampshades will not fit American style harp fittings or lamp bases needing a carrier. Please take a look at the lampshade ringset image provided above.
Please refer to our proportions image to find the right shape and then choose your size from the drop down menu above.
All shades are suitable for ceiling pendants, table or floor lamps, please use the drop down menu if prompted.
Need Help Deciding?
Please contact us if you need any help choosing the right size or colour lampshade, we offer free fabric samples and are on hand to advise on sizing if needed. All our lampshades are handmade to order so although we accept returns, we’d really rather we didn’t have to! Please get in touch to discuss your requirements if you are unsure at all.
Welcome to Love Frankie, the home of statement lighting designs. All of our lampshades are designed, curated and handmade to order by our small but brilliant team here in the UK. Please see below for our Lampshade Specifications.
LAMPSHADE LEAD TIME:
September 2023 – The current lead time for our handmade lampshades is 2 – 3 weeks.
Our lampshades are made using industry standard lampshade ring sets, suitable for use on all UK and EU standard lamps and flex and fitting sets. We provide a reducing ring in the central ring fitting allowing you to convert the lampshade from an 39mm / ES27 fitting (EU) to a 29mm / Smaller Bayonet Fitting (UK).
Our lampshades will not fit on a lamp with an American style harp or a lamp which requires a lampshade carrier. These can be ordered on request so please do not hesitate to get in touch with your requirements.
The bulb 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 meaning the fittings will be at the top of the lampshade. For an example of our Lampshade ring sets please click HERE.
No Flex and Fitting set or Table lamp is included in the cost of our Lampshades. The Lampshades are sold as just the Shade and the flex / table lamp is purely used for photography purposes.
We show our lampshade sizing in both cms and inches, please refer to our proportions images on the product page to find the right shape and then choose your size from the drop down menu.
FABRIC & WALLPAPER SAMPLES:
Colours, textures and tones can look different on different computer and mobile screens, so we always encourage requesting free fabric and wallpaper samples first. You can order your free samples HERE
METALLIC LINED LAMPSHADES:
Three layers of materials are used to make our Gold and Copper lined shades; the foil lining, the pvc, then your chosen fabric or wallpaper. This allows the colour on the outside of the shade to stay rich and opaque.
No light can permeate through the sides of the shade, meaning the light is directional and will reflect off the metallic lining giving a wonderfully warm glow from the top and bottom of the shade.
The amount of light from the lampshade will depend on the size of the shade you order, ie: the bigger the shade, the more light you will receive.
Our fringing measures 10cm or 5cms in length, please note the dimensions on the drop down menus and the sizes on our proportions image do not include the fringing measurements.
The type of bulb required for use with our lampshades will be dependent on the max wattage of the lamp or the flex set you intend on using. Please consult the manufactures guide to find your fitting and max wattage.
The most common type of bulb is the European ES27 Bulb. A large screw in bulb with a fitting diameter of 27mm.
Alternatively, a Small BC Bayonet Cap B22 bulb is a UK standard bulb with a fitting diameter of 22mm.
