Below is a guide only to help you choose the right size shade for your base.
If you are still unsure of which size to order, please send me a picture and some measurements of your lamp base and I'll be happy to help you.
20cm width x 20cm height : for children lamp / very small lamp base
25cm width x 21cm height : for small bedside table/ small table lamp
30cm width x 24cm height : for a medium size lamp
35cm width x 24cm height : for taller medium lamp
40cm width x 29cm height : for large table lamp/ floor lamp
45cm width x 29cm height : for most floor lamp
Please get in touch if none of the standard sizes suit, I am happy to custom make one, just for you.
The lampshades will suit any standard Australian / UK lamp with a bulb holder of 29mm and also the European lamp with a bulb holder of 42mm - Right Pic
Unfortunately I do not carry lampshades to suit the American Lamp - Left Pic
A major factor, yet often overlooked aspect of lampshade selection is safety - specifically, heat generation in relation to shade size. Higher wattage bulbs generate greater amount of heat and require more ventilation, which mean larger or wider lampshade must be used. Very simply, the higher the wattage, the larger the shade.
All of Mesmerizing Blue lampshades are lined with a fire retardant material to comply with Australian fire safety standards. It is recommend that you use low energy light bulb, max . 40W incandescent or CFL/LED Approx. 8 - 10W (whichever is equivalent to 40W)
