57 Unexpected Lampshades

From Dirty Laundry Lamps to Colorful Blob Illuminators

— March 19, 2014 — Art & Design
A lighting fixture in one's home can be used for more than just brightening up a room, and with a few crazy lampshades, an entire boudoir is completely re-designed. Just make sure you don't go too overboard.

If certain people are going for a classier look, the Min-jon Lampshade Collection is handmade using laser. The outer portion is a gorgeous oak wood color, and of course designed with great detail using high-tech lasers. This find would be ideal for anyone wanting to add a touch of class to their homes. Other lampshades play with texture even more, such as the Revitalizer by Merve Kahraman. This design is made from wax, which means whenever the lights are on, the lampshades start to transform.
