In today's society, we tend to have a “disposable” mentality. We buy a phone, and half a year later its better-looking successor appears on the market. We stand in line to try out the latest restaurant, and a minute later, at hipper and trendier food establishment has opened up around the corner. We don't know which way to turn our heads because of all the ever-evolving technology, entertainment, and merchandise constantly thrown our way. This kind of Consumer A.D.D make us abandon what we own without a second thought, and rush out to catch the latest version before it too, loses its appeal. Shades of Soho offers a welcomed alternative to all the madness. When your lampshade breaks, you can come to us for lampshade restoration in North NJ. We will happily fix your item, rather than just try to throw something brand new at you.
We understand the sentimental value of a lampshade. If you are unwilling to get rid of it, or you are afraid you will never find one as unique and special, we will collaborate with you on its recovery and fix up your old frame with some fresh swatches of fabric. We want to make sure that the customer feels fully involved in the North NJ lampshade restoration process. To that end, we always give you the option of bringing in your own materials if you decide not to choose from our collection of fabrics and trims. While we recover the shade, we will make sure to check the inside as well. If the inner lining is torn or worn out, we can fix it or replace it.
We always recommend you bring in your lamp to our shop. This helps us to come up with more options for you and to also brainstorm a completely new aesthetic for your lamp, if you decide to try something different. If you have any questions about lampshade restoration in North NJ, or want to check out our store, please visit our Glen Rock, NJ location and give us a call at 201-785-7646.

Decorating your home is a great opportunity to show off your personality. You can go for the clean and classic look with a cream and white colored aesthetic, or more modern with sharp lines and metal accents. You could take the schizophrenic approach, and throw in some classic AND modern touches, but whatever you do, you should always have fun with it. Shades of Soho echoes this sentiment, always making sure to throw in punches of color and interesting shapes and designs in their custom lamp shades in North Jersey.
Our shades come in a color and shape to suit everyone's taste. We have shades in peach, vermillion, mustard yellow, chartreuse, sky blue, muted green, deep cherry red, hot pink and much more. When it comes to lampshades, the sky is the limit. We have a limitless selection and we are looking out for your best interests. By that, we mean that if you use our frames, fabrics and trims, we consider the item to be stock, which means if you do not see something you like, we can always make you a custom lamp shades in North Jersey at the same price that it would have been if it were already out on display in the store.
Our main goal is to partner up with our customers and work together on getting you exactly what you want. We do not want you to settle, or to walk out of our store feeling like what you pictured in your head did not materialize in front of you. To that end, we encourage you to bring your paint swatches, fabric swatches or photos of the rooms inside your house, so that we can visualize what kind of custom lamp shade in North Jersey you want, and we can envision where the finished product will end up.
Shades of Soho was recently featured in an article on North Jersey.com. In a discussion of different kinds of mid-century modern design, Bryan Kule, the owner of Shades of Soho, talks about his custom lamp shades in North Jersey and recommends that customers avoid “playing it safe.” He recommends taking a design “risk” and picking a unique shape for the shade. By choosing a “hard-paper lampshade in fabric and in color” you can keep the fixture looking stylistically relevant, but still unusual and special.
To get a better idea of what we are talking about, and to see the custom lamp shades in North Jersey for yourself, we welcome you stop in to our Shades of Soho store – located in Glen Rock NJ.

When you go away to college, you hope and pray that you will have a cool, sane roommate. Someone who wont steal your food or practice satanic rituals in the wee hours of the morning. In the case of Bryan and Sam, one can assume they got on famously, seeing as how they not only survived living together but then went on to work together too. They got jobs at a lampshade factory, learning the ins and outs of the business, back when American manufacturing still had some pull.
