This is a helpful feature we offers to our customers… We’ve been asked by countless decorators and end-use customers for years to recover their lampshades, or recreate their lampshades they purchased from vendors such as Visual Comfort, Circa Lighting or Restoration Hardware. It’s not necessarily the shades they include with their lamps are wrong or not of a "decorator quality", they’re just basic and more pedestrian. Lampshades are a personal choice. We’ve scoured the sources most familiar to us and have made templates for most every lampshade from today’s most recognized sources. We’ve done all the work and now it is your turn to customize their basic to your fabulous! Feel free to select from our generous library of fabrics and papers and we even offer a C.O.M. (Customer's Own Material) program that will give you a real custom look, allowing customers to send us a fabric they sourced themselves to use as the covering. When the lampshade is special, the fixture is your personal masterpiece.
