Our Unique, One of a Kind, meticulously Hand-Sewn Victorian era Lampshades are truly the Finest in Quality and Crafts(wo)manship(!) … and proudly made in the USA.
Each shade is custom designed to your exact color incorporating hand-dyed choices and unique design. We consult with you every step of the way, suggest suitable fabrics and treatments (rosettes, fan-pleated panels), send fabric samples (silk chiffon, beaded lace, shantung, velvet, brocades, silks, etc.), and guide you as we begin the creation of your one of a kind, Custom Lampshade. These beautiful lampshades emit Unsurpassed Ambience and Coquettish Elegance. There is nothing like it. They perfectly complement a furniture grouping, a fireside nook, an antique settee, side table, boudoir or can just stand alone as a fabulous conversation piece. They are absolutely spectacular and coveted wedding or housewarming gifts, and can be wildly Romantic and Fanciful or Elegantly Demure ; you are only limited by your imagination! Go ahead … Dream and Design …
Creating your beautiful and unique Custom Lampshade is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
- 1 — Select a frame from our selection (small, medium and large for boudoir, table and floor lamps).
- 2 — Select color choices and lampshade panel treatments.
- 3 — Sit back and try to contain your excitement as your spectacular new piece is created.
As you relax, we begin the magic: The wire frame is painstakingly and precisely wrapped in cotton twill. The satin lining is then hand sewn to the each panel in tiny specialty stitches and the frame is now ready for the top dressing of the Lampshade. This is where the expertise, patience, skill and love of creation comes into play. Some fabrics are hand dyed which requires a skillful blend of scientific and intuitive know-how, a sprinkle of patience for perfection and for the air drying, a delicate hand and meticulous care in transforming the finest fabrics into panels of perfect fan pleated panels, beautiful rosettes, and a myriad assortment of fabrics and panels. The fabric panels are pinned and stitched inch by inch until the hand dyed and air dried rayon fringe is ready to be applied, along with the complementary trim and (sometimes) tassels and Voila! The most beautiful lampshade has been created to your very own wishes and dreams!
