Here at Lucy Wagtail, all lampshades are hand made by me, Irene Massey, from scratch. This includes cutting a template from fire resistant pvc to the exact size required by my customer meaning that your lampshade can be made to your customised size. So if you’d like a larger, shallower shade or a taller narrower shade, then that’s no problem. Just message me to request a custom order.
The pvc backing is also something that can be customised. There are many to choose from including metallics such as copper, silver, gold, neon brights and an array of different colours.
Once the size and lining has been chosen the frame is selected and prepared from a range of shapes and sizes, including round drum shape, coolie (cone), straight empire, square or rectangular.
Fabrics, tweeds, velvets, linens, take your pick! If you’re looking for something specific to go with your decor, or even if you want to use your own fabric (such as an off cut of your curtains for example), I can do that for you too! Simply contact me for further details and minimum quantities of fabric for the size of shade you’d like.
Next each shade is carefully handmade from start to finish by myself. I take a real pride in the way Lucy Wagtail lampshades are produced and I ensure that they are made and finished to the highest standard.
I am happy to give advice as to what size/shape/colour of lampshade might suit any given situation and I’m happy to send a swatch to ensure you are making the right decision.
