Why Twist Pleat Lampshades?

Posted on April 16, 2015 by Steve Brielmaier | 0 comments

One of the biggest trends in lamp shades today is the twist pleat. These kinds of shades are made up of fabric that is spun and folded around a shade to create a somewhat pleated look, reminiscent of an elegant gown.

One of the things that make them very different yet favorable among many of today’s contemporary homeowners is their added texture and personality. They are not merely colored canvases that have been painted on. And because they are mostly made with delicate and stylish fabric, twist pleats will dress those shades well to make them more pleasing to the eye.

Bring out the girly-girl in your living space with the Chelsea Mauve Faux Silk Chandelier Bell Shade. Made from all-faux silk material, this shade will add a mauve finish and traditional feel into any existing lamp and uplift the entire room. Its soft and light color is not something that will be too daunting but still possess features that will make it the center of attention.

For that necessary pop in color, the Classic Red Faux Silk Bell Shade would be the perfect shade to equip your lamp with. With the stunning red finish of its all-faux silk material, your refurbished lamp shade will be the focal point of your space and would even make for a great conversation piece. It will also make for a great contrast to the plain color scheme that your space is currently sporting.

The Chelsea Mauve Faux Silk Chandelier Bell Shade and the Classic Red Faux Silk Bell Shade, along with a few more twist pleat colors like Classic Cream, Chelsea Sage, Classic Vanilla, and Classic Black, are all from the classic line of shades from well-renowned shade designer Laura Ashley.

Laura Ashley is one of the best designers that manufacture these kinds of shades, along with lamps and other light fixtures. What started out as a mere act of printing fabric on their kitchen table back in the year 1953 has turned into something phenomenal in the realm of home decor and furnishing, now offering a wide range of product lines that bear beautiful designs and finishes.

Blog - Getting the Perfect Gift for Your Parents

The holidays are quickly approaching and, if you’re anything like me, you have a really hard time figuring out what to get for people. I find that the longer I have known somebody, the harder it is to find something that shows how much you value who they are as a person and how much you appreciate your relationship.

Parents. I’ve known them my whole life, so why is it so hard to find something for them? Dads are the number one hardest demographic to shop for, in my opinion. I try not to repeat gifts, which has resulted in me actually making presents for the last year or so. It is hard to find the time to create these items. I can’t speak for everyone with a dad, but based on my dad’s interests and our location, I have narrowed down a few items that I think he might like.

Blog - Cody's Movember Favorites - Gifts for the Men in Your Life

Black Friday starts before Halloween and Christmas trees hit the shelves in September, which means by now you’ve been inundated with countless promos and countless gift giving options.
