Care of Your Lumiere Shade
UNPACKING YOUR SHADE
Once you have received your shade, gently open and stretch into shape, and get ready to install your shade. Please do allow a bit of time for your linen shade to drop into its designed shape.
Please DO NOT be tempted to spray or lightly spritz your linen shade to remove creases or help the shade fall into place. Our shades DO NOT like water or even a slight mist. This can cause the linen to come away from the rattan frame (which cannot be fixed).
Please contact us if you have any concerns or questions about your shade or the shape once you have unpacked your shade. We are very happy to help.
SETTING THE MOOD
Our shades create a beautiful ambient light that is soft, warm and gentle. And your light bulb selection plays and essential part of creating that mood. The ideal lighting is a romantic, soft glow, so the bulb you choose should complement your shade.
We recommend a warm colour temperature with low lumens for a lovely soft amber light. This lighting is perfect for bedrooms and lounging areas. In dining, and other areas that require more light we recommend a bright neutral bulb with a mid-range lumen.
QUICK LIGHTING REFERENCE
There are three basic bulb light levels:
- Mood lighting (about 40 watts)
- Task lighting (about 100 watts)
- Average lighting (often 60-75 watts)
