  • our famous opaque painted shades, with a variety of fancy linings.

New Genuine Silk Pongee New Style 290 Genuine Silk Pongee: Our new fine-weave genuine silk meets the needs of lighting designers that want a genuine silk with a delicate texture and no slubs. This exotic material joins our line in response to requests from customers for a smooth genuine silk. The weave adds very subtle texture, putting more emphasis on shade shape than fabric texture. Stocked in White, Ivory and a beige called "Natural".


Styles 874 and 875 Grasscloth: Style 874 (foreground) has a light colored fine weave. Also available slightly darker as style 869. Style 875 (background) is darker, with larger fibers and a bolder texture. The coordinating fabric trim gives these styles a rich look. Grasscloth Shades


European Parchments European Parchment Collection: These European parchments are very translucent, vellum-like papers that complement a wide range of lamps. They give a soft glow to the light coming through the shade, and are good for emphasizing shade shape. Shown here from left to right, is style 760 in a cube square, style 762 cream in a vertically sided drum, and style 759 white in an empire shape.


Styles 743 and 832 Opaque Black Fabrics Black is Back! These two styles are versatile black fabrics on opaque backings. No light comes through the shade. Style 743 is a smooth tight-weave black percale/chintz with a white interior. It has a clean look. Style 832 is the black version of our popular style 830, laminated to a dressy gold lining. Black shades are becoiming popular again. We suspect it’s because the more open tops of today’s drum and empire styles allow more light out of the shade. Styles 743 and 832 Black Opaque Fabrics

Style 717 Palomino Parchment Style #717 Palomino Parchment: The palomino marbling in this beige paper is intrinsic to the paper fibers, not printed on. Because of this, the marbling doesn't fade out when the light is turned on. Shown here in the empire coolie shape, this will also work well with other "in" shapes like drums, shallow drums and cube squares. This style is a good candidate for our genuine leather lacing, Style #717-LB.
