Where Do I Start?

You'll be able to find Lamp Shades here that you'll never find in a catalog, though choosing them can be a little overwhelming!

If you already have the light fixture, we can help determine whether you can use it with our Shades.  If you need new fixtures, we can help you find something that will work.   

Our Shades can be used with just about any style of 110 volt lighting fixture, though not with all models.  The key is to have the right kind of socket (see photo below).  The socket size is referred to as “medium base”, which has an outside diameter of about 1.5 inches.  Additionally, the socket needs to be threaded on the outside, and come with a fitted ring to be able to hold the Shade in place.                                                         

There are workarounds for some fixtures, though, like the down-facing Table Lamps. Unfortunately, any lamps with those 3 little screws to hold the shade in will not work.

It can be confusing to find appropriate fixtures.  We can help.  We’ve had a chance to evaluate quite a number of them, and presently stock a nice variety that work well with our Shades.  You’re certainly welcome to buy them on your own, though, and we’ll share any information we have regarding manufacturers, models and sources.  

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions!

All Lamp Shades presented here are hand-blown by glass artist Bob Meyer of Seal Rock, OR, and fixtures are commercially made by various outside companies.
