We offer a selection of beautiful ready-made lampshades and hand-turned timber lamp bases in our Online Store. Just click below to buy; shipping costs will be added at checkout.
We can smell the crop ripening, stress levels are rising and the noise of spanners tinkering on machinery in the workshop can be heard from LightenUp HQ so it is time for us to down tools until early 2022.
This is not how or when we wanted to end Custom orders for 2021 but there have been many hiccups behind the scenes.
2021 has been one of highs and lows for us, like so many.
We appreciate your support and patience as supply issues due to COVID have delayed orders beyond our normal production time.
We are looking forward to a reset and can’t wait to bring you lots of yummy new fabrics, and additional lampshade and lampbase options in the new year.
If you can’t wait until we reopen, remember we have a range of gorgeous ready-made lampshades and lamp bases on our online store or BFTB Marketplace.
We’ll be restocking the store regularly, but remember to shop early if you are buying for Christmas to ensure your order reaches you in time.
And… sign up to our newsletter from our homepage if you would like advance notice when new products are being added to the shop or would like a tidbit of behind the scene news.
See you early in 2022!
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.
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.
