Tips To Consider When Customizing 

Consider The Base 

We encourage clients to keep the base of their lamp in mind when considering a new shade. The shape, size, texture and type of fitting are all important, and care should be taken to ensure that the new shade complements its base. 

Location, Location, Location 

Next on the list of considerations is where your lamp is going to be placed. Consider both the colouring and scale of the room, as well its existing furniture, in an attempt to pair your custom shade well with its surroundings. 

Be Bold 

Don’t be afraid of making a statement with something bold! We’ll help you coordinate a curated design that enhances your existing space. With endless options ranging from pleating and beadwork to sequinned accents, floral fAbril’s and graphic printing, customizing your dream shade is easy! We believe that the details matter and have various fabrics and finishings readily available to bring your vision to life! 

Function Is Important 

Lastly, consider what function your lamp will carry out. For example, if your lamp is going to function as a relaxing mood-setter, the shade should, of course, evoke a sense of calm. Let’s consider another scenario- what if your lamp and statement shade are functioning as accents to a space? Perhaps then a bold and captivating shade may be better suited. 

Custom lampshades are the perfect accents to any room. They are focal elements that help set the mood and tone of a room. They either curate an intimate and relaxing space or even one that evokes a sense of excitement if a bold shade has been used. 

If you’re in search of a look that's sleek and modern, rustic and country, or anything in-between, get in touch with our team today! We design bespoke lampshades in Toronto and can’t wait to custom-make one for you.
