Lampshades

Everyone loves a tapered drum…

Tapered drum lampshades have been very popular at gilhoolie lately. Either restoration of an existing lampshade (as it’s hard to find a replacement of the same dimensions) or made from scratch using a template.

I particularly like restoring a client’s tapered drum lampshade – it’s always a happy feeling when I roll it along the workbench to make a drum, with new PVC and fabric but reusing the existing rings. They look great in a contemporary setting, on a lamp base or hanging from a pendant.

Take a look at some of the ones I have made recently below. And if you’d like one for your home just get in touch.

  1. I was so lucky to meet Julie as she’s been professional, friendly and efficient. Gilhoolie provided a very quick turnaround and the finished product is so smart.
    We will be coming back to Julie for more lampshades as we were delighted.
