How it All Began

"Necessity is the mother of all invention"

A familiar saying that rings true, time and time again. It certainly was the case for me, as I created the product set offered through Lillue. Early in 2013, I spent months searching for new lampshades and just couldn't find anything that was quite right for a reasonable price. Everything I loved was upwards of $100 per shade!  I spent months scouring the internet for lampshades and lampshade accessories.  The world did not seem to have what I wanted so I created it.  Lampshade magnets that were easy to put on and take off without causing any damage to the lampshade so I can change up the look as often as I want - without spending a fortune!  Lillue has a wide variety of magnetic lampshade accessories to suit an array of personal tastes and design styles.  

All of the lampshade magnets are exclusive to Lillue, and many of the styles and sets are handmade by me.  Lillue is not a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) operation.  I am a true small business as a one person operation - including everything from product design, small scale production, website management, sales, marketing branding and more.   

Lillue's Proprietary Magnet Design

The magnetic backing for all of Lillue's products was custom designed to make it easy to grasp, and also features a high grade, heat resistant silicone covering to ensure that the magnets will remain cool to the touch.

How Does it Work?

Each product features at least 2 magnets - one attached to the decorative item, and the custom designed backing that goes on the inside of a lampshade. The decoration goes on the outside of the lampshade and the backing goes on the inside of the lampshade. The magnets will stick together, holding the decoration in place.

Step 1:  Separate the magnetic front embellishment from the magnetic backing
