These look so beautiful with the light on! We love the mixture of colors. They "bring to mind a handpicked garden bouquet". Some of the more simple designs would look great in modern surroundings. The lace lampshades cast amazing shadows. Any of these can be used with a table or floor lamp, and as a pendant light shade. We could see them over a dining table, in a hallway or even as bedside lamps. Since each one is unique, they would look great in pairs with their own original details.

You can get them from the Nice Shop on Etsy. They can make custom light shades as well, which is a great idea if you have your own collection of doilies or some nice lace. They also have a blog, check it out here.
