About Our Lampshades

Creating an inviting home that reflects who you are and what you love is really important. As colour has been proven to have the power to transform a room and create different moods, so too can a lampshade!

LightenUp Handmade lampshades can help you achieve a welcoming ambience and give your room a ‘wow’ factor. Check out our Lampshade Inspiration page for some great ideas.

Happily, we have access to a huge range of exquisite fabrics primarily sourced from talented Australian textile designers and manufacturers, which we then hand-craft into beautiful lampshades.

The custom order process

Click on the ‘Custom Order Lampshades’ tab (or here) to check out our fabulous array of fabrics and select the one you like. You will then be taken through the order process. Once we’ve received your order, we’ll get back to you pronto to confirm and advise delivery time and shipping details.

Our lampshade prices vary depending on your choice of fabric. We have a large range of fabrics at various price points. To make it easy, we’ve arranged our fabrics into three categories – A, B & C – with C being our most luxe range. Click here to see our current price list.

At LightenUp, we specialise in contemporary drum and tapered (empire) shades. Plus, we offer exclusive hand-turned timber, hand-crafted wire and some commercially made lamp bases to complement our bespoke lampshades perfectly.

We also regularly source interesting pre-loved lamp bases that we pair with stunning LU shades to offer you the perfect table lamp combo! Our lamp bases and any ‘combo special’ creations are available in our online shop.
