TSTSpecialtyDesigns' Shop Announcement

Let me introduce myself, my name is Tina Spakoski and my business is TST Specialty Designs. I make custom, one of a kind lampshades of all types from very Victorian, Contemporary, Traditional and everything else in between. I recently started designing one of a kind handbags as well. From elegant styles to whimsical and fun. They are all hand made and one of a kind designs created from some of the same high quality fabrics that I use for my lamps. I have been in business for almost 10 years.

I also do a lot of restoration work to those beautiful old lamps that you may have. “Custom work is our specialty”. If you have a room that you’d like a lampshade designed around – we can work together selecting fabrics and accessories to compliment your home. Every lampshade is designed to your specifications though I currently have many lamps in my inventory for sale.
All shades are hand wrapped and sewn with the highest quality fabrics, elegant fringe, beads and specialty trims. We use velvets, tapestry, vintage, silks, traditional and contemporary fabrics - or you can provide your own fabrics.

With my interior design experience, I can create that special one of a kind design for your home that will last the test of time and be something that you enjoy – for years to come. My Lampshades can be sold without a base or with different bases - call for more information.

There's no limit to what we can create - give us the chance to design that perfect piece for you. Email or call with any questions: tst [!at], 518-371-6063, you-ll be glad you did.

Customer Testimonials:
"Owning a unique and custom light sculpture, I never thought I would be able to find appropriate shades. Then I found Tina and was AMAZED at the shades she made! They fit perfectly and now my light sculpture is breathtaking. Tina is a master of her art who possesses the most extraordinary communication skills and pays great attention to detail. I recommend her work 110%!"
Kelly - Browns Mills, New Jersey
" I want to thank Tina for helping us decorate our new home in Saratoga Springs, NY. Its the little details that so often make all the difference in the world. The beautiful, fabric-wall sconces she made for us, as well as the absolutely gorgeous Victorian floor lamp for the bedroom, stand out as truly one-of-a-kind pieces that we both love. We even leave the floor lamp on at night with the window shade open when we are not home, just so people can enjoy it when they walk or drive by. More than one person has complimented us on it, including people we don't even know. Sometimes people don't take the time to say thank you like they should. I just wanted you to know that your work is so appreciated"
Scott and Sherry - Saratoga Spring, NY and Miami, FL

"My antique soap stone lamp base, in beautiful condition, suffered below the original silk shade, deteriorating sadly from age. Tina and TST Specialty Designs recreated the glory and beauty of the original shade, restoring the entire lamp to a level of beauty and value just like the original"
Jim G., Altamont New York
"Our lamp arrived today, it is absolutely beautiful, I can't believe the workmanship on the shade. It looks great in our guest bedroom. Thanks again"

"Tina's creativity and craftmanship are exceptional! I have never seen such exquisite taste in choice of design and fabrics. No two lamps are alike - not just in shade pattern but shape as well. She has a natural, unpretentious sense of style for creating the perfect lamp to complement any decor and personality. The quality of Tina's work and design are worth every penny. The lamp Tina made for me is easily one of my most prized pieces"
Sandy H., Clifton Park, New York
"Tina's shades are beautiful - she is an artist indeed. I love them all from the largest to the smallest - they're perfect.

Her work is amazing and I am very happy with all of them."
