We braved the nightmare that is IKEA a couple of days ago. We weren't looking for anything other than some storage solutions, but while browsing through the lighting section, we noticed the new REGOLIT Pendant lamp shades.

Handmade of rice paper, each shade is unique. We like 'em because they're a little more imperfect, and so have more character, than the other paper shades IKEA used to sell (which we can't find on the website).

While they're not Noguchis, you can't beat them for the price. Available in three sizes, priced from $2.99-$4.99.

(And yes, we know you can get similar ones at Pearl River, but unfortunately, there's no Pearl River here.)
