Shading the glare from lighting is intrinsic to the Danish design and living (hygge) ethos.

We sell most of our table lamps without lampshades but, unless the listing says otherwise, they are all suitable for them.

Almost all of our table lamps have E27 fittings and take modern European/UK lampshades. These have a diameter of approximately 3.9cm (1.5 inch), and the shade is kept in place by a removable ring on the lamp holder (see images below).


Our lamps will have one of the following lamp holders:

E27/6: Vintage Danish (Bakelite) - We provide a plastic ring adapter so these lamps take a modern European lampshade.
E27/6: Modern - These will take a modern European lampshade.

E14: This is a smaller fitting sometimes used on small lamps and they use a clip on the bulb lampshade.

B22: UK (also used in Australia, New Zealand & Ireland) - Take a lampshade with a ring diameter of 1 inch (2.6cm) & we provide a plastic ring adapter so they can take a modern European lampshade.

USA/Canada Options:
1) Buy a European/UK shade from Europe or there are some available locally.
2) Use a shade that sits on the bulb. Adapters exist to convert UNO ring shades to clip on.
3) Use an adapter that converts a 3.9cm (39mm) ring to a standard harp.

Our Recommended Lampshade Maker:
If you would like to buy a lampshade to accompany your lamp we recommend the wonderful handmade lampshades, utilising vintage fabrics, by Dawn Witty who made the lampshades in the photo below. 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. Unfortunately, Dawn does not send her lamps to all overseas destinations.
