What is the Trade Portal?
The Trade Portal is a facility on the website only available to members of the interiors and building trade, that allows approved accounts to add any item on the website to their shopping cart and receive their trade discount. 

Is it easy to use?
Yes, very. We are all familiar with saving our details on websites like Amazon and Ebay, once you login with your email and password the website will unlock the Trade Portal extras and change the site slightly to make sure you know you have logged in succesfully. Then you can add products and request swatches as normal with every item discounted and itemised in the shopping cart.

How long does it take to register?
No more than 5 minutes, we ask for some basic information and provided you have a website in the correct market and an email address that links to it the account will be approved in a matter of hours.
You would then be emailed a confirmation the account is approved and then you can continue shopping.

How do I register?
Easy, follow the link or go the the "Trade" section on the website menu and fill in the form for Trade Portal applications.



Sometimes you have the perfect fabric for a lampshade, or there is a small piece left-over from a scheme that is too good to go to waste. We can make this into a new lampshade, there are just a few key details to consider. 

1. The weight (or thickness) of the fabric, this can't bee too thick, so sadly upholstery fabric is not the best to use. If you are not sure, please send us a sample with a note of which shade and finish (card-lined or gathered) and we can help advise.

2. Patterns, if your fabric has a pattern with a direction or very large repeat, please get in touch as directional patterns, such as stripes are not a good option on our tapered card-lined shades but do work well on gathered shades.

3. Yields, or the amount of fabric you need. We have devised this handy table for our lampshades, so you can see at a glance the amount of fabric you need. Download here

When we measure lampshades, we take the measurements in a very specific order, it is a tradition that is too engrained in us to change. So to help measure your lampshade or better understand the size of ours here is a simple diagram to illustrate.

The first dimension is always the base of the shade so when a shade is referred to as a "12 inch shade" this is the base size.
