Striped Shades…

Friday, May 6th, 2011


Lamp shades come in every shape, style, size, and color imaginable.  One of our favorite ways to see a shade dressed – stripes.  These colored lines really set the tone for a lamp, and in turn, an interior.  Stripes can be serious, or just plain sassy, depending on the materials and the colors used.  Check out some of our favorites that are available to you online.
