About Cook’s The Lamp Shaders Co.
Thank you for stopping by the Cook’s The Lamp Shaders Co. official Web site!
Cook's Lamps was established by Ted and Mildred Cook in 1954 as an antique and gift store at the present location. The second generation, Robert and Dolores Bosman, greatly expanded the scope of the store and its services. Presently, the third generation, Marcia Connolly and her husband, Brian carry on the fine traditions of the former generations.
In 2003 and 2004 Cook's Lamps was thrilled to be named the best lamp shade store in Metro Detroit.
We are a well-established store of nearly 6000 square feet. We are dedicated to providing an unsurpassed selection of over 6500 lamp shades in stock, 100s of table and floor lamps and lighting fixtures, a wide variety of lamp shade parts and glass, and 1,000s of finials. We have a full-service repair department that can restore your current lamps to working order, as well as creating new lamps from treasured pieces.
Whether it's a family heirloom, attic treasure or newly acquired object, you'll find that Cook's Lamps as your repair and restoration needs covered, including parts for the do-it-yourselfer.
Additionally, we carry newer technology lamps and bulbs designed to bring natural daylight indoors, reducing glare and eyestrain and improving visual clarity.
If you need a new shade, you’ll want to bring your favorite lamp base in for a proper shade fitting, so you can actually see how the different styles and colors actually light up your lamp.
