Fast Update: Give Your Lampshades an Edge

It’s hip to square foot, at least in regards to lampshades. The perfect lampshade polishes the look of a lamp, so much in the way a necklace can make or break a great outfit. (I hear Michael Kors in my mind speaking about styling runway hair so!)

Many lampshades are some version of round, while it is a round bell, drum or oval bell colour. A square lampshade is much more sudden and feels more contemporary. Take a look at those examples and tell usCould a crisp new lampshade help update your space?

This entryway table comes with a small table lamp having an ivory square colour. Using a square colour here adds to the contemporary, sophisticated type of the area.

This set of table lamps includes square white sunglasses. I like how these lamps equilibrium the curved color of this pendant overhead.

Hint : If the pendant were square, then there are a good deal of rigid corners in this area. Remember that you want to balance out the square contours at a space (think of all the doors and tables that have cut corners) with a few curved shapes to keep it interesting.

This nightstand lamp feels much more contemporary due to its square corners and black color. And the angular sides match the form of the four-poster bed.

This square foot white lampshade feels at home in this modern bedroom. The skinny metal base pairs well.

This modern bedroom feels contemporary and masculine. The black square shades tie in with the simple solid white, gray and metallic bed linens.

Hint: Square lampshades naturally feel more masculine than round shades. Bell shades, in particular, have a more feminine form.

The square colour on this nightstand lamp increases the architectural details of the bedroom. (Look at all the moldings!) And it is a perfect fit for your glass lamp base, which almost disappears so you see the room’s dominant wall color through the glass.

Within this slick bedroom area, the square lampshade fits into the nightstand nook. Square sunglasses come in small sizes perfect for wee lamp bases.
