The Antique Gold Silk Lampshades are made using vibrant raw silk with a natural slub, PVC and Metallic Coloured Lining.
As we use three layers of materials to make our metallic lined lampshades the outside colour stays lovely and rich and no light permeates out through the sides. This means the light is directional so gives a lovely warm golden glow top and bottom. The bigger the shade, the more light you will have!

For everything and more about Love Frankie Lampshades, please make sure you read our Lampshade Specification tab above.
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.
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 in length, please note the dimensions on the drop down menus and the sizes on our proportions image do not include the additional 10cm of fringing.
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.
