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.

2017 Lighting Trends

What's Hot: Aged Brass w/Matte finishes
They said brass was dead. Over and over this was the cry in the lighting world. People felt shame over their shiny brass fixtures and went running to more exotic (read; non-brass) finishes like satin nickel, rubbed bronze, brushed pewter, oil-rubbed bronze, satin this, or Tuscan that, & on and on.

I have some good news for those of you who never gave up on the allure of brass. IT'S BACK with a vengeance. Maybe not exactly as you remember it, but it's definitely back. This is a great example of rediscovering a classic, and giving it a modern signature. Today's brass is aged & weathered, like it's been through something. That makes sense, because it HAS been through something... namely years of neglect from lighting showrooms coast to coast. Who's laughing now?

Blog - The Best Standing Desk for Graphic Designers (2 BIG Reasons)

Hello, my name is Cody, and I am a reformed design junkie who likes to work strange hours. Sound familiar? Yeah, that's par for the course for many of my colleagues. I chat with my peers on a weekly basis.

Blog - Lighting… Better than Just Flowers

Flowers are great. They liven up a room with color, show love, and look good in certain spaces. This is about more than just flowers though.

Get the ambiance right with ambient light...

Ambient light is the most pleasing, in that it’s soft, even, and easy on the eyes. Ambient light helps fill a space with a warmth, and an at home feel you’ll want to set the tone for any romantic evening.
