lamp shade fabric


At Lux, we have the experience and skillset to craft custom lampshades with fabrics or materials of your choosing. 

Do you have a gift given to you by someone that you’d like to use as a lamp shade material? Or, maybe you picked up a beautiful vintage lamp and would like to design a custom lampshade for it. No matter what your lampshade design dream is, at Lux, we are skilled to bring it to light.

Sample sale includes fabrics from Cowtan & Tout as well as Pierre Frey and Kravet.  We make custom shades that will change the look of your room.

What is Lux’s COM Program?

How Does COM Work?

The COM program is a 2-step process.

1. Select Your Lampshade Material

Whether you are using a vintage fabric, a unique piece of linen, or a particularly beautiful lampshade paper that you found, at Lux, we can work with different kinds of lampshade materials. 

However, it is important that you consider the suitability of the material you choose. Some kinds of fabric may be too heavy to give proper shape to, while some types of paper may not be useful as lampshades. 

We also need to have enough lampshade material to work with, so the material you send us must be at least 45” wide. We require a minimum yardage for different types of pleated and stretched shades, which can be found in the table below. The listed size will possibly allow for covering two custom lampshades. 

We will trim the top and bottom of the shade with single fold trim unless otherwise specified. You may also send us your own trim.

2. Fill Out the COM Custom Lampshade Order Form

This one-page form will give us all the information we need, which includes specifics such as the size you are looking for, the type of construction you have in mind, the kind of shape that you would like, the address we are shipping to, and more.

If your custom lampshade frame has an unusual shape, we request that you include a drawing of what you have in mind. (We definitely do not expect great artwork). The drawing will need to be approved by the Custom Department at Lux.

You are done! All you need to do is submit your COM custom lampshade form and send us your selected lampshade material.  Sit back and relax while our team of skilled craftsmen get to work creating the lampshade you envision.
