Good Questions: Arched Lamp with Rattan Shade?

Good Questions: Arched Lamp with Rattan Shade?

ATDC reader Gina needs help finding (or creating) the perfect lamp: I was shopping in IKEA last night and I came across their Regolit arched floor lamp, which I love. However the shade is made of paper which does not go with the decor of my living room. As I continued shopping in IKEA I came across their LERAN pendant lamp with a shade I LOVE (pictured below). So I thought to myself what if I could switch the shade? However, I was ultimately disappointed after speaking with customer service to discover that my brilliant idea was impossible. Therefore it brings me to my question...does anyone know where I can find an arched floor lamp with a rattan/bamboo large shade? Thank you in advance I must admit I'm an interior designer and AT is by far my favorite site!! Gina

Gina,

We too love the shape of the Regolit lamp, but never thought of hacking the shade. You might like this Adesso Maui lamp, though it has three globes rather than one. We are also certain some of our ingenious readers will have advice on how to adapt the Regolit to better suit your needs...
