R5 Illumé New York’s Ronald Scinto and Mark Candido Offer Custom Lampshades

Shedding some lovely light on whatever the subject is, this collection of beautifully designed lampshades is from Illumé New York, a new venture from Ronald Scinto and Mark Candido, the pair behind the much-lauded Antique & Artisan Center in Stamford, Connecticut. A recent addition to Manhattan’s Design District, this Parisian-inspired gallery/workshop offers both bespoke and ready-made shades, all handcrafted and hand-sewn from imported Italian and Chinese silks and designer fabrics. Don’t want to wait 12 weeks for a custom lampshade? Check out its in-stock European-inspired offerings, many imported from Paris, Amsterdam, and Quebec, and including giraffe and lynx prints and high-gloss red and cobalt-blue lacquer designs. It’s open to both consumers and the trade; retail prices start at $85 for a small chandelier, $195 for painted shades, $245 for grasscloth, $550 for houndstooth, and $975 for Italian chiffon designs. Also offered: custom design and fixture repair and rewiring. For more info: illumenewyork.com; (212) 308-1400.
