Morris & Co Strawberry Thief, Black | Fabric lampshade

Regular price $95.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

A gorgeous version of the timeless Strawberry Thief design from William Morris.

The delicate and intricate pattern of flowers, petals and leaves are an attractive sage green, pinks and gold. Speckled thrushes perch daintily on the foliage.

The background colour is described as black, but to my eyes it is a dark navy.

The fabric is a high quality quilting cotton.

Please refer to the size charts in the photos to choose the dimensions for your lampshade. There are two styles to choose from: 9 sizes of tapered shades and 12 sizes of straight sided or drum-style shades. They are all numbered for ease of ordering. For example 'Tapered 15'

This pattern is best suited to the larger straight sided, drum-style shades as the birds will 'bend' and appear slightly tipsy when used on a tapered shape frame.

Also, please note that because of the standard width and horizontal design of this fabric it is unsuitable for lampshades that have a diametre larger than 35.5 cm (unless you would like 2 seams, which I don't recommend).

Use the drop down menus to make your choice - see below.

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).

The light shade frame is manufactured to fit screw fit bulbs (E27 & E14) or, a converter (reducer) adaptor is added to reduce the hole so it can fit bayonet bulbs (B22). 

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

Guide to choosing a lampshade


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 light shade head to 'Table Lamps.'
