These octagonal lampshade frames are slightly bell shaped in style with a flat top and bottom. With the frame having a double band at the bottom, it allows for a different colour band of fabric to be inserted in-between the two octagonal wires, if so wished. We make this style of lamp shade frame from 8" to a 20" floor standard lamp shade. These lampshades can also be made to hang from a ceiling flex, however, please let us know if you want it to hang from your ceiling. If we don`t hear from you immediately after you have purchased it, we will make it to fit a lamp base as normal. We also make these octagonal lampshades frames to fit wall lights and chandeliers with the spring clip fittings; however they are not double octagonal at the bottom because they are too small in height to fit the double octagonal band around the bottom.
