Shade Patterns

Meteor Lights offers authentic 1950s/midcentury-modern patterns on any of our lampshades or pendant lamps.

Most shade patterns are available in any color. We often add to or make changes to our color options, so there may be some discrepancies between the image gallery and drop-down menu in the shopping cart, but we can do most patterns in any color shown or listed. The exception is the web pattern, which is available in any combination of black, white, gold, and silver.

Please note that fabric color and pattern are two different options. We can do any pattern in any color (again, with the exception of webs) on any parchment color. So, first pick your shade color, then pick your pattern (if you want a pattern, that is; otherwise leave the shopping cart drop-down menu on “no pattern), and then pick your pattern color. This enables you to customize your unique shade exactly to your preference.

You can order any pattern in one or multiple colors. The shopping cart allows for a second color, but if you want more, just mention it in the order form message box. In most cases, there is no upcharge.

For multi-tier shades, you can configure pattern placement on just the main tier, on just the secondary tiers, or on all tiers. If you have an unusual pattern combination and/or placement request, just mention it in the order form message box.

In a few cases, some of the patterns aren’t available on certain size shades. For example, the arc and combo arc pattern don’t work well when the shade gets above, say, 14” tall or so. We’ll let you know if there any problems with your selections after you place your order, but this seldom happens.

    For hanging lamps do you offer a circular cover for the bottom of the shade?

      Yes, diffusers are available on most of our pendant shades. Pricing and options are shown in the cart for each shade style. Some of the categories might not show the diffuser option, so please contact us if the style you are interested in doesn’t list the diffuser option.

      We generally don’t make diffusers for 6″ or 8″ diameter drum shades, or for tiered shades where the bottom tiers are 6″ or 8″ diameter, but there are exceptions.

    Hi, I have a vintage midcentury tall floor lamp with a tall barrel shade. The shade needs to be replaced. Should I bring it in to you for an estimate or send an attachment with a picture to find out if you can work on it? Thank You Sharo, Vallejo, Ca.
