At Edgar-Reeves, we believe choosing the proper lampshade is of seminal importance. A shade can often be more of a focal point than the lamp itself. In selecting a lampshade, we sometimes make the analogy of wearing your little black dress with an elegant pair of earrings. Guess where the eye focuses?!
Many outside the lighting industry only know the word “shade” as a noun. At Edgar-Reeves, we spend our days “shading” clients’ lamps, as well as those lamps in our own inventory. To shade a lamp is an active verb.
If you are looking for help with shading your lamp, the first thing we need to know is the planned use of the lamp. Specifically, we are interested in where you will use the lamp and the type of décor that suits your taste. Is the anticipated space traditional, transitional or modern? What is your color palette? Are you looking for a soft-backed shade with pleats or a hard-back shade?
Now, let’s talk about the fabric: silk, linen or COM (customer’s own material). Next, type of shape: drum, empire, oval, rectangular, or square. Lastly, select the finish at the top and bottom of shade: rolled edge, roll fold, or self trim. For an added touch, we can add custom trims in complimentary or contrasting colors.
At Edgar-Reeves, we consider lighting to be an investment in your lifestyle and for your lifetime. Our philosophy is that quality matters; it speaks for itself.
