For southwest décor and lighting, use bleached rawhide which has a consistent light cream color with occasional brown, gold and rust colored highlights and a warm glow when illuminated. The light rawhide of southwestern lamp shades is a warm accompaniment to other southwest elements. If you have Indian pottery or Indian drums on the wall or other leather or raw hide near lamp shade they pick up the color tones and carry the theme throughout the room. Light rawhide lamp shades look best with light or natural colored rustic wood furniture and accessories such as kiva ladders. Our southwest rawhide shades are an excellent example of skill and lamp shade craftsmanship.
When decorating or lighting a home with colorful country or arts and crafts style, consider dyed rawhide lamp shades. Dyed rawhide is also fantastic in cabins and cottages or anyplace where a touch of color is needed or for designer lamp shades and decoration lampshades while also building a rustic theme. Skillfully made dyed rawhide lamp shades use premium quality rawhides and undergo a dual process, lightened then tinted with dye to create the colored shades hide. Colored rawhide lamp shades reveal unique grain patterns that are further enhanced when illuminated. The resulting red rawhide, green rawhide and brown rawhide dyed lamp shades each have a unique colorful glow.
Lamp shades are quite easy to maintain. Before attempting to clean your lamp and its shade, be sure to unplug the cord first. Take off the shade from the lamp. If it is made of fabric, use detergent and warm water to wash it (check if the fabric is color-safe). Just dip the shade in sudsy water and then rinse in clean water. Use mild detergents only; dish-washing liquids are fine. The cloth will stretch and sag while wet. It should tighten up again when it gets dry. To dry, hang over a bathtub or hang from an outdoor clothesline. You can also pat dry with a thick bath towel until it is almost dry and put it back over your lamp. The heat from the bulb will finish drying it out. If you are cleaning a plastic, plastic-coated, laminated, parchment or fiberglass shaded, merely wipe it with a lathered up cloth or sponge. Rinse with a clean damp cloth and then wipe dry.
Lamp shades are decorative covers for lamps. They are used to diffuse and direct light coming from a lamp or light bulb. Shades can be conical, cylindrical, or take on other forms. They can fit floor, desk, or table top lamp models. Suspended lamp models are also very popular. Some lamps come with their own shades; others can be fitted with shades that can be bought at home décor stores. Shades can also be custom-tailored to fit lamps of all sizes.
When considering Burgundy pattern fabric lamp one of the most important thing to consider is the type of fabric used in the lamp. The fabric quality used differs based on the wattage of the bulb used in the lamp.
