Sugaring is a technique that involves tiny glass beads (not sugar!). The beads are spread onto a panel on the lampshade, giving the shade a unique texture and luminescence. The result is something that is both elegant and exciting!
The nearly-lost art of Lampshade sugaring began in the 20th century, and became popular when Silk & Lace Lampshades began to appear in homes in the early 1900s.
