At its foundation, Edgar-Reeves was created out of a passion for beautiful lighting and antiques. Founders Stephanie Edgar Reeves and Bill Reeves have been avid collectors for many years and their love of one-of-a-kind things has taken them around the world in search of exquisite and rare treasures.
After dealing in a variety of antiques for several years, Stephanie decided to specialize in lighting, specifically lamps and lampshades. Her unique and creative eye soon won her many clients who became the cornerstone of a new business. With the pop of a cork, good friends in tow, and their standard poodle house mascot at their side, Stephanie and Bill opened the doors to Edgar-Reeves on a crisp fall day in 1995.
For over 20 years, the team at Edgar-Reeves has provided countless lamps and lampshades to a variety of designers, decorators, and collectors worldwide. They have specialized in creating personalized lamps, both bespoke and from the collection offered at the store. Additionally, they have adapted European and American antiques, handcrafted pottery, architectural fragments, along with many other objects, into distinctive lamps that provide exclusive appeal to any room.
As of early 2017, Edgar-Reeves transitioned to a new generation. Maggie and Matt Bailey purchased the store in hopes of carrying on the wonderful legacy started by its founders. Maggie has been a part of Edgar-Reeves since 2013. She previously held a number of roles within the retail and wholesale sides of the apparel business, but was looking for a new opportunity. It was at this time that Stephanie introduced her to the lighting industry and invited Maggie to join her team at Edgar-Reeves; she agreed and has never looked back.
Today, Edgar-Reeves remains focused on providing an array of high-quality lampshades in a variety of materials, sizes, shapes, and colors. In addition, Edgar-Reeves continues to offer distinctive lamps, beautiful bell jars, and other hanging fixtures to compliment any space. If our existing lampshades don’t meet your needs, we are happy to custom make shades specific to your request. We carry a variety of fine fabrics in a number of colors and patterns or we can use your own material to truly personalize your custom shade.
We invite you to experience Edgar-Reeves for yourself – online and in person…
