  • How do I know what size shade to order?

    Please check our tutorial section for help with proper shade fitting.

  • May I get a fabric sample?

    Yes, samples of any fabric may be ordered.

  • What do the measurements mean?

    The first number is the diameter of the top of the shade.  The second number is the diameter of the bottom of the shade.  The last number is the slant of the shade.  A shade size always refers to the bottom diameter (the middle number). Visit our tutorial.
