Meteor Lights designs and fabricates custom fiberglass drum lampshades, modern pendant light fixtures, and mod acrylic lamp bases in retro, atomic, and mid-century modern styles, bringing classic ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s Americana to your home or business. Our colorful drum and tiered fiberglass lampshades also look great with streamline moderne, tiki, vintage western, googie, biomorphic, Danish Modern, and mid century-influenced contemporary lighting styles.
Our colorful lamps, fiberglass lampshades, and pendant light fixtures accommodate a wide range of lighting styles for residential and commercial lighting applications, from 1940s/1950s Eames-era to contemporary and modern styles influenced by classic post-war industrial design. You will find Meteor Lights’ pendant light fixtures, lamps, and drum shades in five-star restaurants and dive bars, coffee houses and rock clubs, new architectural showcase homes and renovated rockabilly pads, hair salons and bowling alleys, and retail establishments of all kinds. Vintage dealers and retro furnishing shops around the country specify perfect replacement tiered and drum shades for their ‘forties, ‘fifties, and ‘sixties era vintage lamps. We offer a wide selection of retro modern and contemporary shade styles, colors, and designs — providing a nearly infinite range of lighting possibilities.
Our shade material is the same fiberglass and resin parchment used on drum lampshades in the ‘forties and ‘fifties. Our shade fabric is very translucent (not transparent), and provides a soft glow unlike any other lighting material. We hand-stain our drum and barrel shades to achieve a wide range of vintage, retro, modern, and contemporary colors, and we can match your colors (via fabric swatch, paint chip, or Pantone Guide), as well. We take pride in fabricating the coolest, highest-quality replacement drum shades.
We specialize in the low-profile shallow drum and tiered shades characteristic of mid-century/modern lighting of the 1940s and 1950s. Within certain parameters, the height of our drum shades can be customized to fit most lamps.
