If you already have a table lamp and are looking to match it with one of our shades, the first thing you should do is measure the height of your lamp (A) from the base to the bottom of the lampholder and also the width of the base (B).
Next measure the width of your lampshade (C) and height (D).
Diameter/Width: When choosing a shade it's width/diameter (C) should be roughly the same measurement as the height of your lamp (A) - anything plus or minus 5cms should be fine. So if your table lamp is 35cms tall, a shade width/diameter of anything between 30 and 40cms should look fine.
The width of your lampshade (C) should also be wider than the lamp at its widest part (B).
Remember, this is only a rough guide and the look of your actual lamp & shade together will be the deciding factor. TIP: If you're unsure, try cutting out a piece of thick paper the same diameter and height of the shade size you have in mind, roll into a cylinder and tape the joins. Hold this over your lamp base for a rough idea as to how it will look. REMEMBER - our shades are made to order and so are non-returnable, so get it right first time!
Our lampshade diameters, or widths (C) come in a choice of 20, 30, 40 and 45cms with varying heights from 18cms - 35cms.
