Large 1933™ Design Lampshade
Paper Cream, Colour Notes
Our Paper Cream lampshade has a comforting tone, instantly familiar from many a childhood tale; adventure awaits when holding the pages of an old paper map. Never to fade or tarnish, all the history and curiosity of Harry Beck’s original London Underground map is preserved in our signature high-gloss enamel. Here lay the foundations of a million great journeys, whether underneath the streets of London or further afield.
With the intricate enamelling of Harry Beck’s first edition London Underground map in the reflector, this lampshade is a masterpiece when switched both on and off. Our Paper Cream shade nestles quietly into a busy dining room, with the flashes of colour from the expertly hand-enamelled map sparking conversation across every table.

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 Dining Room
The heat-reducing vents that are now an iconic feature of the Coolicon lampshade have multiple advantages in comparison to other lampshades. These vents allow you to direct the ambient light in whichever direction you chose. By doing so you can change the ambience of a room just by one simple twist, while the task lighting cast below will stay the same. Coolicon lampshades give you full control over your lighting in a classic style.
We revel in seeing our customers styling projects, and what better place to go all out than in the hub of all memorable evenings and meals shared, the dining room. The size and shape of your dining table will influence the lighting scheme you choose to centre around it. For those who love entertaining around a longer linear table, a row of Large 1933™ Design shades in between place settings makes for a gorgeously thought-out lighting installation. Why not swap out a central lampshade for the Paper Cream, create a focal point as well as a great conversation piece to get the evening flowing.
"Create focal lighting to spurs discussion"
"Great in sunlight, never to fade"
The Underground Collection celebrates a shared history; Harry Beck’s original first edition London Underground map, also created in 1933, is lovingly hand enamelled into our lampshades.
Our Paper Cream lampshade begins its journey in the same way as our Standard Collection shades - with multiple applications of Vitreous Enamel and firings in the 800°C furnace to solidify each layer. An additional visit to the furnace embeds our hand-applied enamel map into the body of the lightshade showcasing the talent and precision of our master craftsmen.
"Showcasing the talent and detailed eye of our master craftspeople"
A Lampshade as a reference to the 1933 Underground map
This bright and comforting Vitreous Enamel colour pulls Coolicon lampshades from the grind of industrial factories into the fresh front rooms of modern homes and interiors.
Paper Cream’s warm tones of clotted cream and aged ivory paired with contrasting dark edges make for a timeless combination. This comforting and nostalgic shade takes you back to the days of giant newspapers and classically bound books.
Create a relaxing space by incorporating Selvedge Original 1933™ Design lampshades as accent lighting throughout the room.
