The Product: Grey patterned lampshades in block-printed cotton voile
These grey patterned lampshades in block-printed cotton voile are made in India. In this neutral hue they work brilliantly in a wide variety of room schemes, adding textural interest and subtle, neutral pattern. Opt for a single large scale shade in a hallway or on a wide sideboard for a welcoming, evening glow. Alternatively, team a smaller pair on slim candlestick lamp bases either side of a sofa for ambient, mood lighting.
Sustainability and education are at the heart of shade-makers, Samarkand Design, whose focus is on improving the lives of each of the artisans they work with, building lasting and positive relationships with suppliers based on the principles of fairness and social responsibility.
Elegant, tapered shades in larger sizes work well with slim-necked lamp bases such as ceramic, oriental urns or bottle silhouettes. The 25cm base diameter size teams perfectly with simple, candlestick lamp bases. The smallest size shade works well on chandeliers, wall light fittings that require a shade or on petite table lamp bases. Whatever you choose, keep the lamp base simple and unfussy. Allow the decorative pattern to – quite literally- shine!
Try Oka for metal or ceramic lamp bases with a classic silhouette to team with these Indian block-printed cotton lampshades.
