Aztec lampshade | Handcrafted

Regular price $80.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

The pink and gold geometric Aztec shapes of this fabric are aesthetically pleasing and complement an art deco look or provide a visually interesting contrast to a plain-colored wall.

Best-suited for a straight sided light shade like a drum or barrel to showcase the pattern's lines.

This fabric has a rust orange lozenge shape as well as the gold patterns, and the beauty of handcrafted lamp shades is that I can line it up to suit your taste. Just get in touch to let me know on 027 541 4696 or email me (Sue) at

 Team it up with a lamp stand - I have a variety to choose from here: Table lamps

Choose from 10 straight sided barrel sizes and 8 tapered styles. 

Refer to the size charts in the photos to determine the perfect dimensions for your lampshade. All sizes are numbered for easy selection; for instance, 'Straight sided 15'. Use the drop down menus to make your choice.

To order a lampshade in this fabric:

In the 1st drop down menu select the style and shape of lampshade - all dimensions are illustrated in the photos.

Ceiling lights are best chosen from the straight sided options and most of the tapered shades are only suitable for table or floor stands and are not available for ceiling pendants.

In the 2nd drop down menu select whether your lampshade is for a table lamp / floor stand, or to be hung from the ceiling. A guide can be found in the photos.

In the 3rd drop down menu select the ring size of the shade frame.

The options are either bayonet bulb fitting or screw bulb fitting. (See photo). Have a look at your lamp base or ceiling fitting and check if it takes a bayonet or screw fit bulb. This will guide your decision.

If in doubt, select bayonet bulb fitting as this will come with a standard flexible adaptor which can be flipped out to make the bulb holder larger which will then fit a screw bulb.   More information.

A LED bulb is recommended.

Each lampshade has a fire retardant inner made from white styrene.

If you'd like a stand to go with your shade head to 'Table Lamps.'

  • If you would like to provide your own fabric.
  • If you would like a favourite shade recovered so that you retain its shape and size but want a refresh with new fabric.
