Here are some answers to the questions we receive the most about our services.
If we missed anything, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’ll be happy to help
Confused about which size lampshade to order? We can help. We can supply shades in diameters, in 5cm increments, from 10cm up to 60cm. We can also make 70, 80 and 100cm diameter shades but these would be for collection only from our workshop in Kent or subject to increased shipping, The heights listed next to the diameter on the product listings are our standard heights, however we can amend these heights to your specific requirements, the will be a price adjustment, either up or down due to account for the amount of materials used. Please contact us here for a quote.
Please also contact us if you would like our advice over which size of shade would work for your space/with your lamp base. Feel free to include a photo and do also provide sizes of bases and rooms for more accurate guidance.
Yes, we are more than happy and actively encourage you to order free fabric samples here as we are sure you are aware colors can vary greatly on the computer screen and in different lights so to ensure you are completely happy with your shade and to avoid expensive returns we will post these out to you.
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 so the fittings are at the top.
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.
We always recommend using an LED light bulb and have a great selection found here.
We love creating something truly individual so please get in touch with our customer service team who would be happy to talk through your requirements.
All bespoke orders are of course non-returnable and we always recommend sending through samples of your own fabric so our workshop can make sure the material is suitable for use with our binding tapes and ring sets.

You can… But we’d really rather you didn’t! As all our lampshades are handmade to order we try and limit the amount of returns we receive. Especially at peak times, when our delivery times are extended, we’d hate to make you wait so long for something that isn’t quite right. Free fabric and wallpaper samples are available on request and we are always on hand to help with sizing if need be.
Please drop us an email with a picture of your room, or your lamp along with dimensions and one of our lovely customer service team would be happy to advise on colors and sizing to help you find the perfect Love Frankie Lampshade.
