Lampshade Repair / Restoration, Stark County, Ohio

This beautiful frame is a Kichler lampshade.  It is covered with an ivory shantung.  The liner was deteriorating.  The owner of the lamp decided to replace the shade with something new.  I was fortunate enough to get ahold of the shade before it was disposed of.  The Kichler lampshade wire has such nice curves.

An out of state customer contacted me.  She had a beautiful lamp base but no shade.  She sent me pictures of the lamp base and we matched up this lampshade to her base.  The white glass lamp base has etched pink flowers, beige leaves and sits on a brass base.

I was able to save the original shantung cover on the lampshade frame and restored only the liner with a pink blush charmeuse silk.  I added a metallic gold soutache accent trim.  The blush pink liner will make for warm lighting.  What an awesome save!

This Old Lampshade wire has such contour and the heavy duty frame is so very strong! I have to mention how very difficult it is to match a lampshade wire to an old lamp base.   I look forward to seeing the shade and lamp base together.   ( the shade is sitting on just a prop for pictures)
