Finshing Touches Lampshades

Lamps and chairs are LLI’s favorite accessories. So it behooves us to dedicate a blog to lampshades- a final touch that can make or break a room. Lampshades should make a statement. A white lampshade can simply “disappear” into the background. And size matters: lampshades should never have a smaller diameter than the base, and it should be long enough to cover the neck.

DO
Black, color or pattern
Drum or rectangular shades.Simple finials.
Color or gold leaf on the inside of the shade

DON’T
Fleur de lys finials
Fringe, beads or other questionable trim
White shade (unless you want the shade to vanish, or contrast with background)
