Custom Pendant Lamp Shade

Custom Pendant Lampshade

Designing your own Custom Pendant Lamp Shade has never been easier.

1.) Select the diameter (widest distance across the top)
2.) Select the height (vertical distance from top to bottom) of your shade
3.) Select the desired covering for your shade

On all of our pendant cords, the plug may be cut off to allow direct-wiring, if needed.  Lightbulb and ceiling cover plate are not included.

The bottom of your pendant will be open, unless you choose an optional diffuser.  If you select the diffuser option on your pendant lamp shade, your shade will arrive with diffuser support tabs on the bottom ring.   Diffusers are removable and constructed from 1/8" milky-white acrylic.

If you choose a diffuser with your shade, your shade may be constructed with up to 4 vertical steel bars.  These bars are necessary on larger shades to support the weight of the acrylic.  Vertical bars are typically covered with piping to cover the shadows.

Note: If you are simply looking for a drum or cylinder lamp shade, visit our custom round lamp shade section.  Only order a pendant if you require a hanging light fixture with your shade.


For drum shades and pendants, the top and bottom diameter are the same measurement. Order a Custom Round Lamp Shade if you desire differing top and bottom diameters.

"Slant Height" is the distance from the top of the shade to the bottom, but measured along the seam. Slant height is NOT ALWAYS the same measurement as the vertical height of the shade.

Typically, diffusers should be 1/2 inch smaller in diameter than the diameter of the shade.

Select from a variety of pendant styles.

The visible hardware (spokes, etc) can be any color you wish.
