Though a neutral lampshade casts a lovely glow, during daylight, it's not much to look at. Atomic with a pinch of 80s, graphic patterned shades are popping up more often. Check out some different options, and tell us: would you or wouldn't you?
1. Will from Bright Bazaar showcased these lovelies, and I'm a fan. With patterns by Tamasyn Gambell, these shades are offered at new shop Forest London, which sadly doesn't yet have an online option.
2. Anthropologie offers an embroidered version, kitchy and homespun without being too ostentatious. Continual Carets shade, $88.
3. More muted and modern, this shade from Future Shelter works equally well on a danish nightstand or over a sleek glass dining table. Geometric Structure shade, From AU$150.
4. If the Saved By The Bell intro gives you nostalgic warm fuzzies, this shade may just do the same. Bright and bold, it showcases your favorite decade. Zedhead Geometric Print Lampshade, €40.
