Floor Lamp Shades

Changing your floor lamp shades is probably one of the easiest ways to update your décor scheme, refresh your interior spaces and create a warm and welcoming ambiance in your home. And it won’t break the bank either! Our carefully crafted collection of lamp shades for floor lamps has been designed to bring both style and functionality to every room and we’re confident that you’ll find something here to suit your personal taste and unique décor aesthetic, whether you prefer a classic and timeless design or a more contemporary and eclectic look.


Here at Pagazzi Lighting, we understand that lamps are not only sources of illumination, but also statement pieces that reflect your personal style and we’re proud to offer a wide variety of materials, colours and shapes to choose from.

Do you prefer a crisp and clean linen shade, something more contemporary with sparkling metallic detail or the opulence and tactility of luxurious velvet? Our comprehensive range offers all manner of lamp shade shapes from bowed hexagon to coolie, tapered square to drum and oval to empire and cylinder. We offer lots of lovely shades in cream and neutral tones which are perennially popular and will fit effortlessly into any existing scheme. Or why not try giving an accent to your décor by introducing a pop of colour with a vibrant red, luxurious forest green, glowing sapphire or dramatic black shade. Our brushed lava shades in black and copper or teal and gold are perfect for introducing a biophilic vibe into any living space, bedroom, dining room or hallway.
Whatever your preferences, you can rest assured that we’ve got it covered at Pagazzi, with metallic, faux silk and modern pleated styles permanently among our bestsellers. We also have lighting ‘families’, meaning you can match ceiling, floor and table lamps for a cohesive and flowing design.

How to choose a floor lamp shade
When choosing a floor lamp shade, it’s important to consider the amount of light or luminance that the shade will let through. A translucent silk, linen or paper shade will diffuse soft light around your room, whereas an opaque fabric, like velvet, will give a slightly darker and more dramatic effect by producing light that beams out from the top and bottom of the shade rather than through it.

When it comes to choosing the right shade for your floor lamp, there are three types of light options to consider – ambient, task and accent lighting.

Ambient lighting is functional yet also plays a role in softening the light in your space, making for a warm, cosy and welcoming room. We suggest a fabric lampshade for creating ambience.

Task, or utility, lighting is ideal for activities that require a bright and direct light, such as reading or sewing. A floor lamp with a metal shade is perfect for directional light as the light doesn’t escape the lamp shade.
For accent lighting, a white or natural coloured lamp shade will diffuse pools of warm light, emphasising certain areas, décor or furniture in a room.

What about shade size?
What size shade you choose will be a matter of personal preference, depending on the dimensions and style of your room, as well as on the size of the lamp base itself. A large room can easily carry off an oversized shade which might dominate a smaller room, whilst a small shade could get lost in a bigger space. If you want to create a relaxing atmosphere, it's important that your lampshade is the right size to offer enough shade over the lightbulb when you're sitting down.

Floor lamps come in all shapes and sizes from classic pole styles to contemporary tripods to more chunky modern designs, so you’ll need to take this into consideration when selecting your new shade. As a general rule of thumb, your floor lamp shade should be twice as wide as the lamp base and around a third of the height - a shade that’s too large will make your lamp appear top heavy and one that’s too small will have an unbalanced look. If you’re buying a replacement shade for an existing lamp, you can use the old shade as a guide.

Don’t forget to think about light bulbs. We offer a huge array of candle, eco halogen and low energy bulbs to suit the mood. With new generation low-energy bulbs, the distribution of subtle or powerful ‘statement’ lighting in your rooms can be very easily achieved. A low-power or low-energy bulb with a distinctive or self-coloured lamp shade on a floor lamp can make a subtle but distinctive change to the ambience of any room in your home. Don’t forget to add what you need before you checkout.
