When choosing your beautiful lampshade, have a think about the lining. Our trademark Cream Card provides a subtle glow but needn’t be the only option.
Elegant Champagne Card emits a warm light, and limits the contrast between outer and lining colours. It works very well with both Gold and Silver painted finishes.
Gold and Silver card both block out the light through the body of the shade, and bounce the light around the inside of the shade and above and below. Gold has a rich and warm colouring, with Silver providing a cooler, more contemporary light.
Silk or Satin linings are a lovely way to customise design and offer a softer alternative to card linings. It’s easy to create another layer of drama, impact or flair by changing the character of the light. From bright and practical to muted and atmospheric, all our fabrics can be interchanged between inner linings and external fabrics. Amongst our favourites are Manilla silk for its soft warmth and Wolf for its subtle, understated elegance, versatile enough to use both with linens and silks.
