Switching up your lights is a great way to breathe new life into a tired interior design, especially when you want to complement changing seasons or effortlessly transform your spaces for different events. However, we know that doing a complete overhaul on your light fixtures can be a hassle.
This is why we also love the idea of changing your light shades to help embrace new styles and completely different looks with ease and convenience!
With many of us choosing to renovate rather than relocate, introducing new shades is the perfect way to cater to our need for a change! Our shade-only products allow you to create a whole new feeling in your spaces in a matter of minutes.
Update Your Look in Seconds
Switching out your lights provides a great opportunity for you to get creative - you can choose from a vast yet versatile range of interchangeable light shades that give you total design flexibility.
Many of our industrial-style holders will fit any of our shades, making it easy to instantly create a completely new look, all without having to worry about the usual installation costs or work involved when replacing an entire fitting.
Whether you’re just craving a new look or want to match your industrial-style lights with a new piece of statement furniture, swapping out your existing light shades for new ones is an easy and effective way to get that updated feel.

Decorate for Seasonal Changes and Special Events
Often, many of us want to embrace a different look for each new season. Swapping your light shades is one of the easiest and most effective ways to get a fresh look that leans into seasonal trends.
You could choose sophisticated, smoked glass with its subtle, understated appearance that’s perfect for spring and summer and opt for the warm, welcoming tones of amber glass during autumn and winter to tap into evolving trends over the course of the year.
When simply changing your shades rather than committing to changing your entire fixtures, you can think of your lights as a piece of jewellery - as you would swap out a necklace to match your outfit or mood, you can easily switch your light shades to match the seasons or a special event.
Redecorating your entire space for an event or holiday isn’t always possible, but when you incorporate new lights shades, you can achieve a whole new look to bring that sense of occasion to your interiors.
You can then swap your shades back to suit another event or style. Below, you can see how you can bring a different feel to a room just by altering the light shades:

Our New Tinted Glass Range
Replacing your metal shades with a shade from our new tinted glass range or vice versa is a wonderful way to get the feeling that you’ve just moved house and are enjoying a totally new space, giving you a fresh, holiday-like experience.
Our new tinted glass range offers effortless style and can be easily incorporated into your home and existing Industville holders. The new range includes five elegant shapes of shade to choose from and is available in either smoked grey or amber tinted glass.
From swapping the shade on your small chic wall light to changing a set of three statement pendants over the kitchen island, the new design possibilities are endless!
Achieve a Look that Lasts

The fine quality metal and glass shades are equally suited to a country home or city apartment and have been designed to last, allowing you to enjoy their timeless, classic styles for many years.
