Suspension Sets

With beautiful symmetry, our white Vitreous Enamel ceiling cups mirror the iconic gallery of our lampshades, both in size and shape. Made from the same high-grade steel and finished in matching white enamel, our ceiling cups are durable and electrically insulated. Lovers of the fine details, our ceiling cups ensure a sleek lighting design from ceiling to lampshade.

The perfect companion set to complete your Coolicon look with a choice of three timeless lamp holders.

Brass lamp holders - Our signature brass lamp holder is designed to last for decades, just like our lampshades. Imprinted with “Coolicon” around the holder, this set is sure to place your shade centre stage.

Industrial lamp holders - These modern black plastic lamp holders pay homage to the traditional black Bakelite lamp holders from Coolicon’s industrial past.

Porcelain lamp holders - Our white porcelain fittings are modern, clean and simple; produced for the Standard Collection they pair elegantly with all of our shades.

Cable Type: With a natural sheen, our finely overbraided black fabric cable ensures your lampshade hangs with that extra touch of detail and class.

Cleaning Vitreous Enamel

Due to the glasslike Vitreous Enamel finish, the lampshade can easily be cleaned with a soft cloth.

For stubborn marks, a high-quality window/glass cleaner can be applied to the cloth then passed over the lampshade. Care should always be taken to avoid contact with the Coolicon badge.

The best lighting for your Bedroom

The Original 1933™ Design lampshades shape the light, directly positioned over a bedside table the task light is ideal for avid readers. Hung either side of the bed, and paired with a warm low-wattage bulb, these lampshades can create a calm soothing atmosphere excellent for relaxation. By simply rotating the lampshade on the lamp holder fitting glare-free zones can be created where needed.  

Reimagining the once exclusively industrial lampshades, the Original 1933™ Design brings Coolicon lampshades into the modern home. The small, rounded form produces a strong task light below and softer ambient lighting overhead as the bulbs are exposed through the gallery vents. As dusk approaches these iconic vents cast an inviting glow of light, enriching the calm, warming colour of the Vitreous Enamel finish.

"Shapes the light; task light for reading, soft ambient light creates a cosy atmosphere"

"Great in sunlight, never to fade"

As theClassic Cream Vitreous Enamel melts and flows in the furnace it reveals beautiful dark edges that contrast against the light colour of the lampshade. These expressed edges can be found around the rim of the lampshade as well as the gallery and the top joint. On our lighter coloured lampshades, such as Classic Cream, the expressed edges are more prominent and draw attention to the shade’s construction. Expressed edges are a hallmark of Coolicon® lampshades and the craft of Vitreous Enamel – true to our production process since 1933.

The seamless finish of a Coolicon lampshade makes for easy dusting –ensuring your nice, clean bedroom stays that way. Coolicon lampshades are also healthy to live with – especially important considering the average person spends one third of their life in the bedroom sleeping. Our Vitreous Enamel finish is made of natural minerals, oxides and glass – the resulting mixture is non-VOC and will not emit any gases or nasty chemicals into its surrounding environment. 

"Easy to clean, healthy to live with"
