A good lampshade is hard to find. A great one can transform a lamp and, possibly, an entire room. Here are six resources I particularly like.
1. Gracious Home
This company, Gracious Home, offers a wide variety of chandelier or sconce shades. Their feathered versions are unique.
2. Lit Shades
Interesting pleated shades are beautiful and hard to find. No longer! Vaughan has a wide variety of pleated options, as well as “normal” shades. You can also choose a variety of trims and fabrics.
4. Hannah Nunn
Esty lampshade artist, Hannah Nunn, makes the shade and the lamp. My faves are the party shades custom made with your name or holiday.
5. Jocelyn Warner
Likewise, Jocelyn Warner sells a tripod lamp along with her shades, which are crafted from her line of wallpapers.
6. Ashling Rustics
Here in Michigan, many people summer in the upper mart of our mitton. It’s called going “up north.” These styles from Ashling would be popular there. They also offer a southwestern styles.
I’m always writing about Alluminare. I’ve become friends with their owner – even though she lives in Hawaii and we’ve never met in real life. (I love the Internet.) Her company has grown remarkably from its birth at her kitchen table. I admire her gumption. They sell ready made shades. But the best thing is you can create your own with the pattern, style and color that’s all your own.
8. Porta Romana
If you want a sophisticated shade, Porta Romana is the place to go. Origiinally only in the UK, they now have trade locations in the US.
