another lampshade

Yesterday I made a couple of lampshades in a beautiful fabric that I am really loving right now. I'm planning on using this fabric elsewhere in our living room so I think I may just have to keep one of the lampshades for ourselves, also it goes so well with our revamped lampbase. One for shop, one for us! Ooh, that could be a dangerous habit to get into, now couldn't it.


I really love the way the lamp looks at night, the lovely slubby textures of the linen blend fabric are accentuated when the lamp is on.


We will also have cushions in this fabric in two sizes in the Olive & Joy store and we will hopefully be up and running by the end of November! Exciting :)

  9. Totally brilliant pairing of fabric with lamp base! I LOVE it! Are they difficult/expensive to ship?

  10. Thanks everyone :)

    Megan - no I didn't print the fabric myself, I wish I had! It will be available at my store soon, about a month :)

    Holyoke Home - I think a lampshade would be expensive to ship to the US as for bulky but light items (ie. lampshade in a box) the postal companies work on cubic weight or volume rather than actual weight. Once I'm up and running though I will let you know. Thank you :)
