Design it Yourself! A very clever service at ParrotUncle.

The steps are super easy:

1. Go to ParrotUncle’s DIY page, then click on the “Design It Now” button.

2. You’ll be prompted to upload a photo or drawing of the type of lighting you want – and you can be as specific as you want!

3. Fill out the rest of the form including shade material, color, size and shape; fixture details; canopy; and finally, you can even specify the type of lamp socket, voltage, number of lights, switch type and rod/cord length! Now that’s custom!

See how Wilson Berman turned his love of Rubik’s Cube into his very own table lamp!
