Lamps Plus Introduces Made-to-Order Decorative Lamp Shades with Trim
LOS ANGELES — January 21, 2015
Starting at $39.99, Custom Lamp Shade Designs Are Handcrafted in the California Workshops of the Nation’s Largest Lighting Retailer
Lamps Plus, the nation’s largest lighting retailer, introduces a new line of made-to-order lamp shades with custom trim. The decorative trim, available in a variety of eye-catching styles and colors, is hand-applied by artisans in the company’s California workshop. There are currently more than 70 shade and trim combinations, with more to come, available exclusively at LampsPlus.com.
“Custom lamp shades with trim have been hot in the craft and DIY movement,” explains Dennis Swanson, Lamps Plus President and CEO. “Our California-based team of artisans is already producing made-to-order lamp shades, as well as custom finished lamps and fixtures. So with infrastructure already in place, producing these decorative shades is a natural fit, and one we think consumers will really respond to.”
The custom lamp shades with trim are currently available in three popular shapes: classically-influenced bell lamp shades, contemporary drum shades, and rectangular shades. The accompanying decorative trims come in a range of styles, from lace and ribbon weaves, to embroidered leaves and floral appliques. Many feature luxurious details like gold and silver metallic thread, intricately woven patterns, and rhinestone accents. Lamps Plus plans to introduce more trim options for lamp shades throughout 2015. Soon, the company will offer existing lamp bases topped with custom shades as well.
Made-to-order merchandise has been a steadily growing segment of the Lamps Plus product offering. The new custom trim lamp shades join the retailer’s selection of thousands of custom designs, including patented giclee art shade lighting as well as the Color + Plus and Tiffany Color Plus lighting collections.
