Lamp Shade Materials Guide

Hubbardton Forge has designed beautiful lampshades to compliment their handcrafted lighting. All shades have an inner lining of heavy white plastic to ensure years of enjoyment. Remember some shapes will be limited to certain fabrics and papers.

This section will help you choose the shade right for your needs.


NATURAL LINEN: A more traditional natural color fabric option with a coarser weave compared to our Natural Anna and Flax fabrics.

TERRA MICRO-SUEDE: A warm brownstone and rust red dyed fabric in the micro-suede family of fabrics.

NATURAL ANNA: A more contemporary, white fabric with a tighter, smoother weave compared to the Natural Linen.

DOESKIN MICRO-SUEDE: Softer, richer fabrics, our micro-suedes are hand-dyed and distressed to create a subtle patterning with warm brown and tan overtones, especially when lit.

ECLIPSE MICRO-SUEDE: A dark grey alternative in the micro-suede family of fabrics, for those who are looking for a more opaque shade option.

FLAX: Our most popular transitional, off-white fabric with the same weave as on our Natural Anna shade.

SPUN FROST: A white, non-woven fabric imparts a light, contemporary feel.

SPUN AMBER: A warm, amber alternative to the Spun Frost non-woven fabric.

NATURAL CORK: A renewable natural cork veneer which glows dramatically when lit.
