At Porta Romana we strive for perfection in every aspect of our design, from lamp holders to lampshades. We have brought our lampshade making in-house to reduce our carbon footprint, and of course to allow for greater creativity. Having a lampshade studio on site saves us 32,500 miles in fuel per year. That’s the equivalent of driving one of our vans from Land’s End to John O’Groats and back again over 20 times.
All our wirework is 4mm thick and powder coated in our own branded colour, champagne. This extra rigidity helps prevent dinks during its lifetime and allows the shade to travel well.
The transparencies of our linings have been created purposefully to give the right glow when lit, every silk, satin or velvet requires a different thickness.
Our packaging has been redesigned to ensure environmental harmony, and ease of unpacking.
Whenever necessary a base will have its own unique shade, our personal recommendation. However you can also customise your shape, your colour, your lining and your light output, but the quality is non-negotiable.
