Product Descriptions

Samphire will take care to ensure that all products are described accurately, and photographed to show them in their truest colours possible. Please remember however that images will show differently on the screens of different devices, and as such, we cannot guarantee exact colour matches. Occasionally small fabric samples are available for the lampshades and if you would like one, these can be sent free of charge if there are any swatches in stock. To arrange this, please contact Samphire either by email  sarah@samphireshades.co.uk or by phone  07794304219.


Product Safety

It is essential that the maximum bulb wattage specified for each lampshade is adhered to. In nearly all cases this will be 40W maximum, and the bulb must be kept AT LEAST 5cm away from the lampshade sides. Samphire recommend that only low energy bulbs are used with ALL lampshades.

Traditional tailored lampshades should ONLY be used with low energy bulbs.

Drum lampshades

These have been made using a pvc backing that has passed the Lighting Association Glow Wire Test and are thus deemed flame retardant.

Soft lampshades

The linings of these lampshades are treated with a non toxic water based fire proofing spray which thus creates a flame retardant barrier.


The cushion inners are made of upholstery grade hollow fibre and comply with BS5852 Part 2 Source 2. They are ideal for allergy sufferers and are washable (300 maximum is recommended).



Please do not place lampshades or cushions in direct sunlight as this may cause discolouration or fading. Samphire cannot be held responsible for this.


  • Do not wash any of the items.
  • Do not allow the lampshades to get wet
  • Do not use cleaning fluids on lampshades or cushions
  • Cushions can be dry cleaned only.
