Before making a selection, take a look at the existing theme of the room it’s supposed to go in. What is the motif? Does it convey a rustic feel? Is it designed in a contemporary style, with minimalist, clean lines? What about the colors of the wall, floor and ceiling? Is it a disparate collection of colors, or is there a theme there?
Look at the furnishing. Is the room filled with modern furniture, characterized by metal and sharp angles? Or is it equipped with wooden furniture? What about the curtains? Are they thick, light-blocking curtains, or lightweight and airy?
By identifying the design traits of the room, you will be able to make a better decision on the right type of lamps to buy. Subtle and neutral colors will complement existing themes, while bold colors will dominate the area.
The Umage Eos Lamp shade White, for example, is great for cozy spaces. Made from genuine goose springs, the shade emits a soft and warm light. It is also very versatile; it comes in six different sizes, four different colors, and can be used on the table or hallways.
After factoring in the theme of your room, it’s time to consider the theme of the lamp shade. For instance, do you want lamp shades for floor lamps that are bold in color and design to become the centerpiece of your décor?
If you do, then check out Rice’s Round Lamp shade with Sequins. Made using golden sequins, this is a lamp shade that will take charge of your living space. Hang it on above the living room or dinner table, and party on!
However, if you prefer something more delicate, Bergo’s Sixten 25 Strawberry Thief is an excellent place to start. Made from fabric and using artwork designed by William Morris in 1883, this flowery lamp shade exudes a comforting ambiance that is ideal for quiet conversations.
Our selection of lamps at RoyalDesign is made using a variety of materials, including plastic, silicone, glass and metal. We even have lamp shades made from jute and linen. Each material fulfills specific design and aesthetic functions. The care required for each type is also different.
For example, Watt & Veke’s 29 cm Hunter Lamp shade offers a gorgeous shiny green finish that will draw all eyes in the room. However, since it’s made from silk and polyester, you should never clean it using a washcloth and soapy spray. You will need to take it apart first, and gently hand wash the fabric.
With over a few hundred designs to choose from here, we’re certain there’s no better place to shop for your perfect lamp shade!
