Product information
We take care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of products appearing on this website are correct and we aim to keep this website as up to date as possible.
​Product colour
We make every effort to ensure that the products are photographed in their true condition and show their true colours, however images can look different on different computer monitors and therefore exact colour matches are not possible.
Bespoke Lampshades, Cushions or other soft furnishing items
As each bespoke product is made individually to order, we cannot guarantee the exact positioning of fabric patterns, and this may differ from those on our website, however we will always endeavor to match the patterns as closely as possible, and for bespoke items will discuss this with you in advance. Seams on lampshades cannot be pattern matched, as we are governed by the size of the panel or frame used to make the lampshade.  When you commission us to make you a bespoke item using your own fabric, in advance we will ask you to please send us a swatch of the fabric with a full description including sizes, of the item. We will then send you, by email, a quotation and upon acceptance of this quote, we will then send you an invoice for payment in advance of us commencing work.  Please allow 3 weeks until bespoke items are dispatched, however we will discuss the delivery date with you.
​Product safety
Lampshades: we recommend using 40w maximum and energy saving light bulbs and to keep the bulb a minimum of 5cm away from the sides of the shades.
