Q | Can I supply my own fabric for a lampshade?
A | Yes! Of course. It shouldn’t be too thick though, so that it lets the light through. You can always send me a sample of the fabric to make sure it is suitable.
Q | Can gilhoolie source fabric for me?
A | Yes! I’m happy to help you find the right fabric. I charge a small fee for this, included in your lampshade quote.
Q | Do you have plain fabrics you would recommend for lampshades?
Q | Can I see a sample of one of the plain fabrics I like so that I can check the colour?
A | Yes! Just send me your address and the colours you’d like to see and I’ll organise it for you.
Q | How do I request a quote for a lampshade?
A | Just send me an email with the measurements (top and bottom diameters, plus height) and shape you need and I’ll get back to you.
Q | I really like the shape and size of my current lampshade – can you recover it for me?
A | Yes! Just send me photos of the lampshade, as well as the measurements and I’ll send you a quote for recovering with new PVC and fabric. I’ll reuse the existing rings.
Q | What are the options for lampshade linings?
A | The standard PVC lining is white. But I often use metallic embossed PVC in champagne, gold and silver, as well as mirrored copper.
Q | What is the lead time for lampshades?
A | 2 weeks, but it is often quicker.
Q | Can you make me a lampshade from wallpaper?
A | Yes! As well as maps and pages from books or comics. I usually attach a contrasting bias binding strip on the top and bottom rings to finish them off nicely.
Q | Can you attach a trim to my lampshade?
A | Yes!
