Shade In The USA

I received emails inquiring on my post "made in the shade" and wondering if there is a USA company that makes similar for a more reasonable price. I found a wonderful company on Etsy that has great drum and gathered shades.  Check these out because they are fun and very reasonably priced!

To purchase go to CruelMountain - HERE

SIZING: Shade width should be about 2x the size of the width of the base, example 9 inch base can have a 16 - 18 inch width shade.
Height of shade should be about 2/3 the size of the height of the lamp up to the socket.
example: 28 inch high lamp to the socket could hold a 16 - 18 inch 
high base.

As a wonderful surprise Cruel Mountain at ETsy is offering 10% off if you use "relishedroost" at check out!

  2. Karolyn,
    You know I wanted to know, and you inspired me with all of the possibilities.
    Thank you- now one more question, before I purchase. How does one measure for the proper fit of a lampshade?

    1. To figure out the right width for your shade, measure your lamp base and multiply by two. For a round base, measure straight across; measure diagonally for a square base. The widest part of your shade should be at least a half-inch wider than the widest part of your base on each side. And when you’re considering width, don’t forget location.
