All lamp shades are not the same. A high-quality shade enhances the lamp it is on and is the most cost-effective way to increase the value of a lamp. Our lamp manufacturer customers find that investing in a top-quality shade improves sales because their lamps look better, and their customers will pay for the better shade. Our lighting retailer customers know that going the quality and service route is the way to differentiate themselves from discount competitors.
Our shades are made in the U.S.A. from the best materials used in the industry. Our backings are the heaviest available. The frames are heavy-gauge wire with high-quality brass or nickel plating on the metal parts. We work hard to make sure the wire is on straight; the binding tape and trim is smooth. The seams are straight and won’t pop open. The dye lot of the trim fabric always matches the body. Even our packing dowels and spacers are stronger to protect your shades from shipping damage. Our inspectors won’t pass a shade unless it’s good enough for our president’s home.
While many members of the home furnishings industry are pursuing mass-marketed, mediocre quality, disposable products, we are constantly searching for ways to make our shades better. We strive to bring you value by being competitively priced for our quality level.
