Elegant shades graced table and floor lamps as well as crystal chandeliers imported from Europe. And the electric light bulb enabled fine work to be sewn at night usually under a parlor bridge lamp. Today the tradition of hand-sewn lamp shades continues and here are tips and sewing techniques from the experts. When buying or recovering a lamp shade today, keep the design of the lamp base in mind. Curved shades compliment curved lamps and angular shades normally work best with angular lamps. Shade frames are available for lamp bases with harps, bridge lamps, floor lamps with glass bowls, chandeliers, headboards, night-lights and more.
Using Antler Lamps For Rustic Style Interior Design: Antler lamps are an excellent way to create western decor. So much more than a way to light your home, antler lamps add character to your home. If you own a rustic cabin or southwest style home, the rustic appeal of antlers with their beautiful shapes and variations in natural color will give your area the unique old west feel you are hoping to create.
Keep in mind the placement of the table lamp when decorating. A popular technique to creating balance in a bedroom or living area is to use a pair of table lamps placed on top of a set of side tables. This creates a sense of harmony within a room.
There are also different techniques for making the antler lamps themselves. Some lamp makers use glue to hold the antlers together. Others may fasten them together with rawhide thong for a rustic Indian look. And some of the most attractive antler lamps may include a combination of being glued, drilled and screwed together, with the holes sealed for a natural look. Better quality lamps will almost always include rawhide lamp shades.
Antler lamps also compliment many other rustic elements in home decorating. In the Northwest or \"north woods\" antlers may be added to snow shoes and complimented with rawhide lamp shades to use as fabulous wall sconces. The light colored wood and rawhide lacing of the shoe, combined with the leather binding and pleasant glow of the rawhide shade, make it a wonderful match. No matter if you decide to adorn your antler lamp with southwestern light rawhide shades or western style dark rawhide lampshades, the choice is yours and the effect will be stunning.
