Museum Quality Restoration

Restoring antique shades to life again is always a joy!  We repair each fabric antique lampshade using as many original fabric and trim pieces as possible. Our expertise in antique lampshade restoration has been acquired by the many different shades we have restored over the years. 

On this page are some before and after examples of our antique lampshade restoration.  We try to reuse original elements when possible.  When original elements are no longer usable, we can recreate an original shade with vintage or vintage looking fabrics and trims. 

 

Not all shades can be restored, but many can.  We are always glad to look at photos of your shade and let you know what we can do!  

Have questions or would like to see if we can restore your shade? Email us at kelly@vintageshades.com!

My restored lamp shade arrived yesterday and it is absolutely gorgeous - expert workmanship.  It is just what I had in mind and every detail is perfect.  It was certainly well worth the time and price.  I am so grateful that I found you online.  I am so pleased to have it back and will certainly enjoy it for many years to come.

 

Thank you so very much! Anita in Florida

This restoration came to us with a very plain and simple design. We added beautiful new beading throughout the shade to make it a stand out shade! Have a shade you would like restored? Email us!
