Decorative Lampshades

Bear's Paw Country Club

Bellflower Lane, Grey Oaks Country Club

Here are two examples of silk lamp shades I've used on some fairly recent projects. In the lower image, a trophy room I created for a big game hunter in Naples, I used an Houles' linen fringe on Ralph Lauren shades. We upholstered the walls in Holland and Sherry cashmere. At top, (image) I used some antique italian tole lamps, with pale green pleated silk shades, which blend beautifully with the peridot colored walls and grassy green patterned carpet...Louis XVI style poster bed by Hickory Chair Company. Swing arm wall lights and ceiling fan from Wilson Lighting, Naples. I really cannot overemphasize the importance of proper lighting ! DF *****
