The Joy of Lighting (formerly Shandell’s) reflects my lifelong love of all things vintage. As a former antiques dealer, I started using things I’d collected to make custom lighting pieces.

And I use everything from handmade papers to antique wallpapers — from vintage textiles to Fortuny fabrics — to make my shades.
