Are You Shady?

There’s nothing worse than when you want to curl up with a book but dread turning on your blinding overhead lights so try a lamp instead. Lamps are an excellent source of light and a beautiful accessory for bedroom, living room and side table. They’re ideal for a soft illumination whilst reading a book or providing some light when you rather not be in the dark while watching a horror movie. Lamps come in various sizes and some are designed for the floor while others the table. Though the body of a lamp can be decorative, sometimes it’s the shade that is a real show stopper. See, the shade itself can be the statement piece of the lamp in place of the body.

Like the lamps themselves, lamp shades come in many different shapes, sizes and colors. Even so, the shades are broken into 5 basic shapes: bell, drum, oval, rectangle and square. Different materials and fabrics are used to crate lamp shades. One of the most popular is linen.
