Upholstering lamp shades

Hi guys,

I have these lamps and one of the shades got slightly burnt when we accidentally put a candle near it.

https://cassoni.com/lucilla-table-lamp-01?v=15042021

I have been trying to google where I can have them upholstered without much luck... A friend of mine recommended one place but it was 1-1.5 hour drive outside of Zurich, and I'd like to keep it simple....here in town. And might as well do all three of the lamps, so they look the same.

Can anyone recommend a place and any idea of approx. cost?

Thank you!

Ps. I got them many years ago at a special store that sold designer furniture for a discounted price- and my then friend had contacts there, hence I was able to go. So going back to the store I got them from is not an option...

What do you mean by upholstering? I mean with a sofa it kind of makes sense but with a lamp, the shade(s) just need to be replaced?

If you want to replace shades you basically only need to look at the system they're attached and go out and get some.

You could also ask them. They're in Zug.

Re: Upholstering lamp shades

In case you have trouble finding anyone to do it (or for a reasonable price), I've come across videos on youtube before that show you how to do it yourself, and it looks quite easy. You just basically need whatever fabric you want to use and a glue gun as well as the basics like scissors, etc. I've thought about trying it myself sometimes, as I have a nice drum lampshade that I'd like to have re-covered in a different linen fabric.

This might be the DIY video that I had watched before:

Ah! I mean the shades to be changed but I thought "upholstering" meant for all furniture, wrong English used

I really like the original look and feel, so thanks for the link, will call them!

Thanks Pancakes. Problem is the shade itself is not just burnt, but the surface has become uneven because of it so I couldn't glue new fabric on top. But I do like creativity, so thanks for the video
