Since 1979, Lampshades Inc has provided its customers with a quality American-made product. For three generations, we have continued to hone and expand an unparalleled expertise in our craft so that we may service a diverse clientele, which includes small local stores, renowned interior designers, restaurants and nationwide hotel chains. No matter the size or complexity of an order, we are dedicated to providing custom quality at a reasonable cost.


We are able to accomplish this through our quick and efficient production line that ensures fast turnarounds. Our manual assembly is only done by skilled craftsmen who are trained in the most efficient methods of fabrication. This is performed under the direct supervision of our owner, Michael Lawlor, who has been with the company since his grandfather, Bill Drabik, first opened the doors and has been the chief operator since 1990.

The skill of our workers, combined with Michael's expertise, allows us to custom make orders to our customers' exact specifications. Whether using one of over 100 top-of-the- line stock fabrics or a supplied material, we are able to produce quality lampshades that vary from 2-1/2" to 80" in diameter at any quantity. If a customer can imagine it, we can create it.


At Lampshades Inc, we realize our success is measured only by our customers' satisfaction. Because we are family owned and operated, we can vary production schedules according to our clientele's needs. This eliminates both delays and back orders so that we can guarantee a timely delivery. We take pride in offering the best customer service available through a courteous and efficient office.
