Lamp Shades are an amazing interior design tool which and with a little thought can change the look of any room. It may be a simple matter of physically changing the shade or the more creative option of designing one your self.
Rawhide lamp shades can be used as replacement lamp shades on your existing lamps or as the perfect accessory to your new rustic lamps. Each rawhide lamp shade is handmade and the shade of choice for southwestern table lamps, vintage or antique lamps or western floor lamps. Old world craftsmanship and the natural material characteristics of rawhide allow rustic lamps to create perfect ambiance. If you want rustic lamps that hang from the ceiling such as antler chandeliers, rawhide chandelier lamp shades allow light to filter through the rawhide. Mini lamp shades or clip on lamp shades have a built-in bulb clip at the top of the shade which allows the lampshade to rest directly on the bulb to give your rustic lamps a custom look. Rustic lamp shades made of rawhide work with cowboy, Native American Indian lamps, log homes, cabins and cottages as well as any ranch, lodge or country décor and are the staple of western and southwest decor. You can find a full assortment of sizes and colors at Mission Del Rey where stock or custom rawhide shades are available in 16 sizes and 5 colors. You will love the glow of rawhide lamp shades.
Fabric lamp shades do have different practical uses. For example if one wants to read a book by the bed then the shade should allow enough light so that the text can be read. Certain shades which are used only for decorative purposes do not shine enough light for reading. So before purchase consider how you want to use it. Burgundy pattern shades are better suited for decorative purposes.
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.
An bulb clip adapter can be added to any standard shade to allow it to be placed over the bulb. Chandelier lamp shades usually have built-in bulb clips made for the small flame or candelabra shaped bulbs. Shades used as hanging lamps may use an uno mount which has a center ring large enough for the bulb socket to pass through. These also appear on some table lamps. You can use a bulb clip on a replacement shade instead of an uno mount.
