30cm Pendant Empire in Teal Hunstanton Velvet
Complement your interior with one of our beautiful Empire Shades that come in a multitude of sizes and gorgeous fabrics to suit your needs. With its traditional cone shaped sides, an Empire shade has a more classical look than its more contemporary cousin - the cylinder - but is equally versatile, as this version is designed to fit a ceiling pendant light.
Empire shades are so called because they became hugely popular during the turn of the last century when the British Empire was at its peak and the use of electric light was becoming commonplace causing people to seek a way of shading the glare of a light bulb. Shown above in our delicious Teal Hunstanton velvet, this shade has a rich, sumptuous weave that brings a touch of luxury to your room, especially when used to freshen up your existing colourway or as an accent in a new scheme.
All our shades are handmade here at our Suffolk workshop by our team of expert shade makers from fabrics picked for a quality that lends itself to soft furnishings. From the luxurious feel of silk and velvet, to the warmth of wool and simplicity of linen, they will all wash your room with a soft, flattering light that creates a warm, inviting atmosphere wherever they are placed.
Try matching your pendant shade with one of our beautiful forged iron look lampholders. We supply ceiling roses in brass, nickel or our painted finishes with a choice of different coloured braided cable. For the full range, have a look at our pendant lampholder page.
Many of our gorgeous fabrics are also available as cut lengths and cushions if you are looking for a coordinated look. If you’re not familiar with this fabric, don’t forget you can order a free swatch by clicking the swatch icon before choosing your lampshade.
