Large 1933™ Design Lampshade
Metropolitan, Colour Notes
With the warmth of plum and richness of aubergine, Metropolitan is a great choice to light a classic Victorian entrance hallway.
A Metropolitan Large 1933 Design™ lampshade provides a natural focal point upon entering your home. Ample ambient up lighting frames details on high ceilings, accentuating the height and creating the illusion of space, whilst a warm down light welcomes guests into the heart of your home.

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.
Adjustable drop length: Min 15cm – Max 150cm.
Bespoke lengths available.
Please note: Suspension sets do not include a ceiling hook.
Standard Suspension Sets are certified for UK and EU use only.
Can be used with both incandescent filament and LED bulbs.
For a traditional look we suggest filament-style squirrel-cage or pear-shaped bulbs.
Coolicon® Lampshade Materials / Size / Weight
Our Large 1933 Design™ lampshade provides a greater ambient light into the room than the Original 1933 due to the lightbulb sitting slightly higher in the larger gallery opening. This design also allows for a wider and softer cone of light to be emitted below. Sharing the same visual language and proportions as the Original 1933 Design™ shade, this larger design shapes light differently to suit main room or statement lighting.
Ø400mm x 245mm - Approx weight: 1.5kg
Compatible with: E27 and E26 fittings
Light bulb wattage: Max 60W filament / 18W LED – 220-240V
Recommended shape: Squirrel-cage ST58, or ST64
Suspension set and light bulb sold separately.
Lamp holder hole size: Ø40mm

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 Entrance
Bi-directional light spills from the iconic Coolicon® gallery enhancing entryways and hallways. Originally designed to aid in dissipating the heat of 1930’s lightbulbs the open gallery form allows ambient light to the ceiling whilst dispersed task light is scattered below.
Hanging a series of Coolicon® lampshades throughout an entryway or hallway allows for walls and floors to remain clear of additional hallway lighting – freeing up plenty space for coat stands and shoe racks. Original 1933™ Design shades can make a stunning addition when clustered in an entryway, for large entrances and hallways we recommend the Large 1933™ Design lampshade. Its larger light cones allow for more light projection in open spaces, filling the room with warmth and welcomes.
"Ambient light above; bright clean light is projected into the welcoming space below"
"Great in sunlight, never to fade"
The final touch, the gold Coolicon® badge, deems your shade a Coolicon® lampshade. Used on Coolicon® lampshades since 1933, the badges are aligned by eye and applied by hand just as they were generations ago. Every badge proudly showcases its unique creases; authentic marks created by the curve of the shade as the badge mimics its shape. Our larger Coolicon lampshades may be a new addition to the Coolicon family, but the badge they proudly wear is true to the original size and shape of its very first predecessors.
Handmade in England, the coloured Vitreous Enamel finish is applied by master craftsmen. Built layer by layer the finish is both highly durable and highly reflective. The reflective finish effortlessly bounces bright, neutral light into rooms and hallways – no more digging around bags or coats in the dark to find your keys!
"Highly reflective finish brightens up the smallest of spaces"
A Timeless Burgundy Lampshade
A timeless colour reimagined for the contemporary home, Metropolitan is always a clear choice when lighting entrances and hallways. Influenced by Victorian tiles and steam trains, with hints of rust and autumn leaves this shade will stop any visitor in their tracks.
Mix things up by pairing with Powder Pink for a dash of colour or pair with Pewter or Selvedge for a touch of understated elegance.
