Hand Made Victorian Style Fringed Lamp Shades

Hand Sewn Fabric Shades

Our fabric shades are made to resemble  vintage lampshades shown in various lamp catalog reprints.

     I began making these "fancy shades" about 21 years ago.  Rather than rely on fancy silks and brocades,  I try to copy the originals which used plain fabrics in layers. Sometimes, panels are hand painted.  By adding hand sewn rosettes, fans, ribbon ruching and our signature lattice smocking, our shades become anything but plain.  Layers of trims add to the opulence and because most of our fabrics and trims are hand dyed, the overall effect is perfectly blended. I try to achieve a softly aged look which will blend with your vintage lamp.

     Sometimes we are able to find vintage frames which we recover for a one-of-a-kind shade. But, more often, new frames are used. If you find a shade style below that you like listed as sold, don't despair, we may be able to get more of that frame. Also, if you find a style you like, but the colors just won't do, we will be happy to work with you  to find colors that will.


      New shades will be added below as they are available, but feel free to contact us if you are looking for something special. Additional shades are shown on the Floor Lamp Page
