Share-a-Link Thursday – LiT ShadesWritten by faith
Lampshades like shoes are a dime a dozen, it seems you can find them anywhere. But finding high quality, unique shades is a much more difficult task, except at LiT.
Dawn Bassett and her shop dog Nikki have owned and operated LiT for over a year. Owning LiT is the perfect place for Bassett to combine her background of architectural rendering and her amazing ability and love for fashion and art. What sets LiT apart is providing the buyer with the chance to “build their own” LiTshade through a wide range of textile selections as well as endless size and shape options. Basically LiT’s motto is, “Anything is possible.” With so many options, Bassett has already eased the burden of such choices by carefully selecting which fabric lines and specialty papers she carries in her shop.
Not only are LiTshades beautiful to look at, but they are also earth friendly. Bassett has taken careful consideration of materials used in the making of her shades. Instead of plastic backing she uses only paper backing and water based, non-toxic adhesives. In addition LiT also offers a number of reclaimed, recycled or re-purposed fabrics and papers as well as a wide range of natural fiber textiles like silks and cottons.
LiT is located at 19th and Prospect, two blocks East of Volunteer Park, and shares its bright beautiful space with innovative wallpaper distributor Hermitage.
