Naomi BlodgettNaomi’s Lampshades & Lamps is located in Lake Oswego, Oregon and was founded by Naomi Blodgett in 1942.

During World War II, Naomi began teaching lampshade-making classes in the basement of her Lake Oswego home. Quite the seamstress herself, Naomi had a strong personality and was “quite the character”, as some would recall. She and her husband learned how to fix lamps and began offering lamp repair.

After 28 years building the business and running the repair shop, Naomi retired in 1974 and sold the business. But even after her time as owner, Naomi would be known for stopping in to check on the team and make sure they were running the store right.

 

naomis lampshades and lampsRecognized for it’s red and white exterior, the store has transitioned ownership over the years, but much of the staff has remained, proving just how much they love the work they do.

Today, there are still no other lamp stores in the Greater Portland Metro area that offer the same services that Naomi’s does, to the scale they are able to offer.
