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 some pictures and some measurements of your lamp base and I'll be happy to help.
20cm width x 20cm height : children lamp / very small lamp base
25cm width x 21cm height : small bedside table / small table lamp
30cm width x 24cm height : medium lamp
35cm width x 24cm height : medium / large lamp
40cm width x 29cm height : large table lamp / floor lamp
45cm width x 30cm 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 AU / UK / EURO lamp with a B22 , E14 or E27 bulb holder (right hand picture).
USA lamps have a harp and finial (left hand picture) , my lampshades will NOT fit this style of lamp.
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 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 ; 40W max. for smaller lampshades and 60W max. for larger lampshades
