Florida Lighthouses - 14" Rectangular Lamp Shade designed by Donna Elias made by Life Shade in the U.S.A.
There are two significant differences about a Life Shade lampshade; first, they start with a fine art print (a giclée print) and, second, the print medium is a special, long lasting, translucent material called "backlit" - when the light is off, the lampshade is a fine art print - turn the light on and the print is transformed by the backlighting effect. It is what we term "art in a new light".
Depending upon the type of lampshade (conica/roundl vs square/rectangle) there is a big difference in labor costs - aligning the artwork on the lampshade frame without distorting the image can be a bit tricky. All of the remaining elements (e.g., quality of print, print medium, etc.) are exactly the same. Additionally, all of our lampshades undergo strict quality assurance review so they will arrive in perfect condition. And, all of our lampshades are printed and made in the USA.
