|| 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.
|| 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
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.

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
