Our Shades in Gray Magazine!

One of our customers, Brian Pacquette of BP Interiors, was recently featured in Gray Magazine. Gray Magazine described his style as “classic-meets-modern” as he mixes more traditional pieces with more modern shapes.  All of the lamp shades in the photos featured in the magazine are from our Harold’s Lighting store in Seattle!  We think he did a great job and really transformed the rooms into great spaces.
