Our Company

A new lampshade can transform the look, feel and comfort of a room. Bring in your lamp and our trained professionals will help find the right fit for your style, budget and needs. Have a look through our extensive selection of stock shades or consider having a shade custom designed to meet your vision.  If lugging a large heavy lamp into the shop isn’t possible, please bring your current lampshade, a photo of your lamp and height measurement so we can help you choose a suitable shade size.

Finding the right balance, colour and style for your lamp is an art. The more we have to work with, the easier it is to put it all together in a way that’s both aesthetically pleasing and functional.  Our main goal is to provide you with quality lighting, while making the process as smooth and pleasant as possible.

We’ve been manufacturing quality handmade lampshades since 1969. In 1991 Greg Spiro and Guylaine Messier purchased the manufacturing company and retail store in Victoria BC. Two years later they opened a second retail store in Vancouver.

We’re currently going through another major shift as Greg and Guylaine’s daughter Allison takes over the family business.

Allison started making lampshades alongside her parents in Victoria as a teenager. It wasn’t long before she was running the retail shop in Vancouver. Allison has since moved back to the head office where she’s taking over the company, bringing a more current vision and fresh ideas.

Guylaine has owned and operated the business since 1991. She knows the lampshade business through and through. Guylaine will continue working part time in Victoria, helping Allison and customers with her exceptional expertise.

Gail Jeffrey is the manager of our busy Vancouver store on West 4th ave. Gail has worked in the lighting industry for over 28 years. She’s friendly, helpful and has a vast knowledge of lighting and its history.

Kassandra Klassen is our senior sales associate. With an art degree from Emily Carr, she has a great eye for colour, style and proportion.
Our goal will always be to provide you with quality products, friendly service and trained professionals to complete your lighting and design needs.
