How to Install Your Shade

HOW TO INSTALL YOUR SHADE
We have created all our shades with a large 4cm ring at the top of the shade. This allows your shade to be used as a DIY pendant that works for both plug-in or hardwire installations.
The large ring can simply be put over an existing bulb holder or used as a plug-in option, which means there is also no additional cost to have a qualified electrician hard-wire your shades to the ceiling. Making sure everyone can enjoy our shades whether you own or rent your home.  And if you are moving home, you can easily pack down your shade and take with you. 

NB. If you do require the smaller ring option with an adjustable cap, please contact us directly for a custom order.

4 SIMPLE STEPS TO INSTALL YOUR SHADE 

  1. You will need to purchase a 0.75cm electrical cable (if you don’t have an existing cable)
  2. Open your shade and gently stretch into shape
  3. Pull ring over the blub holder and seal
  4. Insert your warm glow bulb and install

SETTING THE MOOD
Our shades create a beautiful ambient light that is a soft, warm glow. 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)
