Hand-turned Timber Lamp Base “Little Argyle”

Hand-turned Timber Lamp Base "Little Argyle"

This stunning timber lamp base is our very own LightenUp design, handmade by Traditional Turnings in Melbourne and creatively wired courtesy of Creative Cables in Brisbane.

The base has a rustic style enhanced with a wax finish to bring out the timber grain. It stands 36cm tall to where the shade sits on the base, suitable for shades of 20 to 30cm diameter. As the lamp bases are handmade, each one is slightly different and may have some imperfections due to the nature of the wood and the hand-turning process. But that’s what makes them so unique and why we love them!

Lampshade Types

Table and Floor Lamps

A table lampshade sits on a lamp base which is placed either on a table or sits on the floor if the base is tall. The light fitting sits at the bottom of the shade.

Ceiling Pendant

A pendant lampshade is where the shade hangs from a light fitting on the ceiling, usually above a dining table or kitchen bench. The light fitting sits at the top of the shade.

Lampshade Shapes

Drum Lampshades

Drum lampshades are the most popular as the shape is contemporary and suits many different decor styles. 

A drum shade is basically a cylinder that has the same diameter measurement across the top of the shade as the bottom.

Tapered / Empire Lampshades

Empire or “tapered shades” are more traditional. The diameter measurement of the top of the shade is smaller than the measurement at the bottom, creating a tapered effect.

We offer three different sized Empire shades.
