Design Your Own Lamp

Posted on May 21, 2012 by Ed Lecciones | 0 comments

Sometimes, that particular kind of fixture that we envision to furnish in our living space is not manufactured by furniture stores in the exact color and style that we are looking for. In such unfortunate and sometimes frustrating instances, don’t you wish you can just be the designer and make one on your own that will satisfy your specifications? Fantasize no more as Dolan Design allows you to do exactly just that – create your own lamps.

Dolan Designs gives you the freedom to make your own lamp in just three basic and simple steps: choose a base, choose a shade, and choose a lamp. They offer a wide array of choices that will allow you to mix and match lamp shades and lamp bases of varying colors, styles, and finishes. Dolan Designs offers two sizes of lamps: petite and full-size.

With the dozen of designing possibilities at hand, it would be impossible for you to not come up with that one lamp bearing the most ideal combination that will fit you and your living space ideally.

Petite Lamps

These small lamps work best atop side tables and small corners. They will make to provide just enough illumination as you curl up beside it on your couch while you read a good book or just as an accent piece to give your space that necessary flair

Choices for lamp bases range from the simple and modern down to the trendy and intricate ones. The clean and plain Petite Mix and Match Table Lamp Base Satin Nickel would best fit a contemporary bedroom while the seemingly ancient-looking Winslow 1-Light Table Lamp Base Old World Iron will provide the warm feel of a traditional home.

Shades come in many colors and textures that will make for a great complement for whatever kind of lamp base that you choose. Some of their most striking design includes Petite Mint Green with Brown Leaf Pattern, Petite Beige Textured Round Bell Softback, and Petite Beige Round Hardback.

Full-Size Lamps

Full-size lamps are best for bigger area that will need more illumination that a petite lamp can only provide. They can also just serve as a special piece of decorative lighting installed wherever space is not an issue.

Bring in the rustic feel of your living space with an equally rustic lamp base just like the Mix and Match Lamp Base Only Sienna. If you are going after pieces that feature clean lines and geometric shapes, the Mix and Match Lamp Base Only Olde World Iron should be good enough

There are also so many shades to pick from. From the vibrant Sangria Round Bell Soft Back Shade, to the classic Latte Hard Back Shade, down to the dainty Lamp Shade Brown.

With the dozen of designing possibilities at hand, it would be impossible for you to not come up with that one lamp bearing the most ideal combination that will fit you and your living space perfectly.
