Lighting is one of the most important elements of a room's decorating scheme, yet many of us opt for a plain fabric shade for that table lamp or pendant ceiling light. This fabulous new book from lampshade designer Elizabeth Cake shows you how a beautiful and unique lampshade can completely transform a room, with 35 wonderful projects for you to try. The first section explains in detail how to make the four basic lampshade shapes: drum, bell, Tiffany-style, and cone. Then Textiles includes ideas from fairy light shades made from vintage fabrics to a twisted ribbon drum shade and covers a number of simple techniques such as applique, cross-stitch, patchwork, or simple stitching. Paper, Card, and Wood includes simple designs using papier mache and origami, and ideas for upcycling. Metal has easy but effective ideas such as hanging old keys from a bell frame, as well as more challenging ones such as puncturing copper sheeting to create an Art Deco effect. Finally, Odds and Ends has quirky ways to use found items, such as old 35-mm slides and even drinking straws. With clear instructions and illustrations, this is a comprehensive guide for anyone wishing to add character and style to their lighting scheme.
