BESPOKE LAMPSHADES AND RECOVERING SERVICE
At Lume Lighting, I offer a completely bespoke lampshade making service, meaning that I can hand make a lampshade to your exact requirements.
You can either bring your own fabric to me or use one of my in house fabrics, and it will be turned into a beautiful lampshade using your choice of style and size. For a quote for a bespoke lampshade, please contact me with your measurements and fabric choice.
Lampshade Recovering Service
I also offer a lampshade recovering service, reusing your old lampshades and saving them from landfill. I absolutely love seeing the transformations and really enjoy being able to restore your lampshades to their former glory. Therefore If you have an old lampshade that needs a bit of a refresh, then I am here to help. I am a skilled lampshade maker and can recover a variety of styles of lampshade, including drum, tapered, coolie and the more traditional soft shades.
Each lampshade recovering is priced individually, based on the size, shape and condition of the original lampshade, plus the time it will take me to restore and recover it.
I recover soft lampshades using traditional hand sewn methods. Each lampshade will need to be stripped of their original fabric, the frame is then checked, sanded and resprayed if needed. Next the frame is bound with cotton tape, before the fabric is hand stretched and pinned in place. Once happy with the shape, the fabric is hand sewn onto the frame and binding and trim is attached. This process is labour intensive and therefore the price reflects this.
It is very difficult to give you an idea of price without seeing photos of the lampshade. However I have outlined below some sizes and costs to give you an indication of what your quote might be.
Price indication, please note these are not exact prices. Each recovering is priced individually.
- Extra small traditional empire soft shade, fully lined. No bigger than 15cm D - £60
- Small traditional empire soft shade, fully lined. No bigger than 25cm D - £90
- Medium traditional empire soft shade, fully lined. No bigger than 35cm D - £140
- Large traditional empire soft shade, fully lined. No bigger than 45cm D - £170
- Extra large traditional empire soft shade, fully lined. No bigger than 55cm D - £200
I can recover larger sizes, the price just increases as the size does.
All can come without lining which would reduce the price by £10 to £40, depending on the size.
I have a small selection of my own printed fabric that you can choose from, I also offer a selection of plain linen fabrics. If you are interested in having your lampshade recovered in something else then I encourage you to source the fabric, as you will know what suits your home best. Please contact me and I can advise what the best type of fabric is to use. If you cannot source fabric yourself then I can do this for you for a standard sourcing fee of £25.
Yes of course! Please contact me to arrange an appointment. To give you an indication of cost before you come in, please send me an email with photos of your lampshade and the dimensions and I can give you a quote.
Yes I can. Please send me an email with photos and measurements of your lampshade and we can discuss price and also fabric. If you are sourcing the fabric then I ask for you to send me a fabric swatch first to make sure that it is the right weight and type of fabric. Once we have confirmed all the details, I ask for a deposit and then you can send your lampshades to me. Once they are recovered then I will invoice you for the remaining amount and delivery costs before I send them back to you using a courier.
I would love to hear about your ideas for a bespoke or recovered lampshade so please do get in touch. If you would like a quote then please send me a few photos of your lampshade and the dimensions and I can give you an idea of cost.
