Time to break out your inner product designer again folks, because this week you’re designing your very own lamp shade.
is the nation’s largest specialty lighting retailer (you West Coasties may know them in person, while us East Coasters can peruse their wares online) and they’ve got a great new on their site so you can design your own drum shade for a whole slew of lamps and fixture styles. And this week one of you can win a Brushed Steel Contemporary Table Lamp with a shade in the pattern, color and trim of your choice.
Here are just a few of the designs that we played around with (so many patterns, so few empty side tables):
If you’ve already created a design that you love and can’t bear to wait ’til Thursday’s winner announcement, Lamps Plus is giving YHL readers a special discount (). Oh and you can take a screenshot of your design and submit it on Lamps Plus’ to remember- and share- your masterpiece with others. Who knew lamps could be so interactive? Now for this week’s entry deets:
- PRIZE: A Brushed Steel Contemporary Table Lamp with your very own custom shade thanks to the tool
- TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “MY SHADE IS” and…
- BONUS QUESTION: …tell us your favorite color (we’re going back to basics this week). But since we’ve all grown up a bit past simple “green” or “red,” we’d love a bit more of a description (glowing amber? muted gray-blue? ruby red? celery green?).
