Robert Franco lampshades - 75 years in the making!
The art of creative manufacturing of customized projects
Robert Franco Inc. is a vertically-integrated company, making its own metal frames in steel, stainless steel and aluminum, as per your project requirements. Our metal shop does spot welding, MIG and TIG operations. The shop is fully equipped with the folders, boarders and benders needed to create all the shapes you may require. We breathe life into your ideas, and we carry out projects of all sizes, large and small.
We manufacture lampshades with fabrics such as linen, chintz, parchment, silk and organza. We also make lampshades in stainless steel mesh, with fireproof material called nomex, as well as wood, acrylic and leather. You can specify a material and/or supply your own. We are very flexible and hope we merit the title of being fine craftsmen as a result. We do custom lamination of your fabrics on bases such as styrene, clear vinyl or polycarbonate, and we can treat your fabric to make it flame-resistant, as per the norm NFP 701.
If you so desire, you can create your own designs that we can then print on the lampshades. Just send us your design, brand name or logo, and we’ll print or silkscreen it, thus creating a very unique lampshade.
Three generations of expertise in making lampshades, since 1938
