  • Change Your Mood with a Loop Lamp Shade

    Our new lamp shade design allows you to create a custom look whenever you wish! The shade features fabric loops at the top. Take your favorite scarf or fabric color, weave it through the loops and top it off with a festive tie for a custom look.

    Beige Loop Shade with Paisley ScarfEach shade comes with a silk paisley scarf, or you can use your own material. Use greens and reds for a holiday look, then swap in pastels for spring. 

    We have several looks to choose from, including a beige loop bell shade and a cream fabric loop shade.

    Check out our complete selection of lamp shade designs.

  • Fun iPod Speakers

    iPod Speakers PictureLooking for an accessory for your iPod? These speakers use LED lights to put on an ever-changeing visual display to the music being played. Just hook them up to your iPod and sit back and watch the show!

    We tested these at the office on the new Apples in Stereo album (recommended!) and they sound pretty good considering their small size.

  • New Designs in ENERGY STAR Lighting

    One of the hottest styles of lighting isn't a visual look at all, it's ENERGY STAR rated fixtures and ceiling fans. These products all meet the strict consumer product energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and US Department of Energy. So not only do they look great, but they'll save you money over the lifetime of the fixture as well.
