Why Choose Vintage Shades



We use one hundred percent silk to line each and every shade.  We believe that a good lining is intrinsic to the finished look of the shade. It eliminates the outline of the lighted bulb and adds to the warm glow of the lampshade. It also gives a wonderful finished  look to the inside.  While we make mostly vintage style lampshades, we also design Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Asian, Victorian, Edwardian, and other custom styles.

We use predominately all silk fabric when finishing the exterior side of the panels. If it is not silk, it is fabric of excellent quality. Most of our fabrics are purchased either in LA, Denver, or New York.  We select fabrics and trims that are currently fashionable as well as ones that are always popular and often requested.  We like to vary our trims and are always searching for new ideas.  Many of our trims are imported . When we have the opportunity we use antique fabrics and trims.  You can't beat those "new old stock" pieces. The fringe we use is extra thick and the finest quality available.

We have one of the largest selections of styles and sizes available.  We can have frames custom made in different sizes to fit the clients needs and we can have old frames reproduced.  We hope to have several of these introduced on our website soon.

Antique restoration and repair is another area in which we have considerable experience.  Working on authentic antique lampshades has taught us much about how shades looked in the beginning.  We strive to duplicate this vintage look.  

We want to be able to offer a shade that can be a finishing touch in any room and will reflect your personal taste. We are confident in our ability to create shades that have an appeal and will blend into your style and we try to always have some selections available in our "in stock" section of the web site. Or we will custom make one for you with as much or as little participation in the designing process as you like.
