Coolicon® Accessories

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.
Adjustable drop length: Min 15cm – Max 150cm. 
Bespoke lengths available.

Please note: Suspension sets do not include a ceiling hook.

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 Conservatory

Hanging a trio or cluster of Original 1933™ Design shades over a coffee table can transform the space from paired back to a hearty home. Often overlooked, your coffee table can become overrun by clutter. By spotlighting this piece you can create a central focal point, taking time and pride to incorporate décor and personal items that will tie the room together. No more forgotten about furnature pieces! 

Our Original 1933 Design™ re-establishes the Standard Coolicon lampshade for modern commercial and domestic interiors. In its early years, the Standard Coolicon lit factories of 1930’s Britains heavy industry, now, our developed colour palettes bring the utility shade into the contemporary home.  The classic form and innovative vented gallery allows for soft ambient lighting above while producing a stronger task lighting below. As dusk is ushered in the vented gallery spills light across the top surface of the shade, resulting in brilliant displays of colour.

"Produces soft ambient light above and a more diffused task light below"

"Great in sunlight, never to fade"

Every stage of the Coolicon® enamelling process features personal touchpoints of our craftsmen.  

Glass chips, along with natural oxides and minerals, are mixed and milled into a liquid enamel. This is not a particularly scientific process but more like baking. Periodically the enamel craftsmen will check the consistency of the enamel mixture – this can be determined by touch or by wiping the mixture over a steel blade to see how quickly it retreats and comes back.  Different consistencies result in different applications – every master enameller has a consistency they most prefer to work with.

The continuousenamel finish means that Coolicon® lampshades are easy to keep clean – no more dusty lampshades above your coffee table!The natural materials of the Vitreous Enamel finish are non-VOC. A Coolicon® lampshade is a safe and healthy choice for your home, never to emit any gases or react with any chemicals.

"Easy to clean, healthy to live with"

The Famous London Brick in a Lampshade

Familiar and warm, our Terracotta grows richer at sunrise and sunset. Inspired by the humble material of plant pots and roof tile we celebrate this icon of industry. With tones of umber and russet Terracotta doesn’t look out of place in organic settings of conservatories or near skylights.  

Resembling the aging of a copper penny coin, we recommend pairing this deep Terracotta with our vivid Fresh Teal
