Lampshades


We sell our table lamps without lampshades but unless they say otherwise they are suitable for them. 

Our table lamps are made for European size/style lampshades with a ring diameter of either:  E26/7 - 1.5 inches (3.6cm) or B22 - 1 inch (2.6cm) & (using the included lampshade reducer ring) 1.5 inches (3.6cm).

Alternatively you can use a lampshade that sits on the light bulb. Please check you can buy a lampshade you like that fits before purchasing a lamp.

Shading the glare from lighting is intrinsic to the Danish design and living (hygge) ethos.  Poul Henningsen's classic PH pendant lamp is the perfect example of the Danish design approach to form and function - the multiple, angled layers of the pendant were specifically engineered to completely eliminate glare.

If you would like to buy a lampshade to accompany your lamp we recommend the wonderful handmade lampshades utilising vintage fabrics by Dawn Witty - you can find her designs here. 

Dawn specialises in Mid Century and Scandinavian fabric designs. As well as selling 'off the peg' lampshades, Dawn custom makes lampshades to order from her vast collection of vintage fabrics. If you send her a photo of the lamp you have bought she will make suggestions of fabrics that will suit it.
