Patterned lampshades are having a renaissance at the moment. Some provide subtle, small-scale, all-over pattern while others command your attention. This large, blue and white drum lampshade has presence in spades.
The crisp blue and white colours, extra wide diameter, straight drum silhouette and smart, linear pattern by textile designer Julia Brendel – inspired by 19th century Hungarian embroidered tablecloths and folk costumes – create contrast, interest and a talking point in the room. This lampshade is very much an atmospheric addition to any room providing mood lighting as opposed to functional task lighting. The shade is lined with copper-coloured PVC and casts a subtle, warm glow above and below the shade when illuminated.
In these images we pictured the decorative shade with both floor and table lamps; the simple yet stylish, white-washed, turned-wood ‘Moonshine’ floor lamp base to add softness and rusticity and the ‘Verona’ table lamp base both by fab lighting brand Pooky Lights.
The lampshade fabric is made from 100% cotton and the PVC lining is flame retardant. The shade measures 35cm high x 50cm wide (shade diameter) and does not require a shade carrier (shade comes with an adjustable plastic ring that fits directly onto the bulb carrier of your table or floor lamp base, ready to be screwed tight in place).
