The Color Plus lamps and Art Shade lamp shades are popular top-selling products from Lamps Plus. Each is made-to-order and assembled by skilled artisans in Lamps Plus’ Los Angeles headquarters workshop. Color Plus offers over 100 designer colors on a range of lamp bases, including a classic urn base and several midcentury modern influenced designs. A set of two Color Plus candle holders is also available.

“Our collaboration with Dunn-Edwards, a similarly highly regarded like-minded Los Angeles-based design retailer and manufacturer with a long successful legacy, brings both companies’ strengths together and will benefit customers’ homes with these new colors on our Color Plus lamps,” said Lamps Plus Founder and CEO Dennis Swanson. “Our Color Plus lamps and Art Shade lamp shades set a standard for color variety and quality. We see these colors rapidly growing in popularity among homeowners.”

Seven Art Shade patterns are available in the five Dunn-Edwards colors as standalone lamp shades or paired with matching Color Plus lamp bases. Three of these are new Art Shade patterns designed specifically and exclusively to include accents from each of the Dunn-Edwards trend colors. An additional new pattern features multiple Dunn-Edwards colors, available on both a lamp shade and pillow.

The new Art Shade patterns with Dunn-Edwards colors include:

  • Mid Summer: a vibrant floral pattern with a theme of optimism

  • Shift: a three-dimensional modern pattern arrangement

  • Sofia: a lively fluttering bird and floral pattern

  • Drifting Circles: a standalone orbiting pattern incorporating three colors for a shade and a pillow

“The colors from our 2021 Color and Design Trends Report featured by Lamps Plus include shades of warm neutrals that represent macro trends of sustainable design, health, wellness and brighter shades that signify positivity in the face of fear. Ideas of escapism, magic and nature as inspiration abound,” said Sara McLean, Color Expert and Stylist at Dunn-Edwards.

The Color Plus collection, launched in 2012, offers over 100 colors on a variety of lamps and a pair of candle holders. Bases are available in crisp white, clear or color-coordinated colors. All Color Plus products are handcrafted to order in California. Among the 10 lamp bases featured in the Color Plus line, there are shapes for multiple styles of home decor including the versatile shapes named Ovo and Leo; Carrie for whimsical casual spaces; and the Wexler table lamp, which lends itself to midcentury modern spaces.

Art Shade printed shade products, also created and assembled in Los Angeles, have been offered by Lamps Plus since 2007. Customization and a focus on innovation have been an emphasis for Lamps Plus since that time.
