At Shady and the Lamp we want you to love your new purchase but if you would like to make a return we ask that you give us written notice of this decision within 5 days of receiving the product. We must be notified via email BEFORE you return any items as they will likely be rejected otherwise.




Once the return has been approved by Shady and the Lamp, the product must be received by us within 10 days from that date or it will not be accepted. We cannot accept responsibility for goods that have been damaged after delivery as a result of poor handling or storage.

Please note that you must cover the cost of the return shipment, unless the item is incorrect or faulty. Fabric samples are available upon request to help to minimise the possibility that you won’t be anything less than thrilled with your purchase.
