Crazed on Contemporary Modern Lighting

Crazed on Lamp Shades

Sometimes we just want to relax or simply sit by the couch and think. Sometimes we don’t want to use a lot of light; sometimes all we need is a lampshade. A lampshade has a warm, comforting glow that adds a dramatic effect in our living rooms, bedrooms, or offices. Its light resembles that of a fireplace and so it gives off a homey, classic vibe. In contemporary modern lighting, lamp shades help a lot in creating the mood – and bringing style and elegance to our homes.

Revamping Lamp Shades

 If you have been using a lampshade for years and realized that it can actually look better, revamping is not an impossible task. In fact, it can be very easy and fun! You can change its shade into something more striking, more modern, more YOU. You’d be surprised to see the variety of colors and art design lamp shades can now actually have. From simple to classic, to classic to traditional, contemporary modern lighting can shed off some skin to suit the latest art trend or the latest YOU. So read on and you might see something you like.

Styles to Choose From

Metallic silk shades 

Exuding traditional and modern styles, metallic silk shades are a good way to sophisticate your room. This example is the Uttermost Becca Unique Lamp by Uttermost. Designed by David Frisch, its silkened silver textile is also perfect for offices where you want to have a “formal” mood. But unlike whitewashed fixtures, this contemporary modern lighting is less flexible to complement all kinds of design styles. 

Pendant shades 

Modern and chic, pendant shades accentuates a room with its highly-glamorous yet low-key design. This confusing combination is shown in this Illuminating Experiences Le Klint 175 Pendants by Illuminating Experiences. This hand-folded sculptural pendant was actually designed by Poul Christiansen, a designer of modern lighting whose designs have been timeless.

Rectangular shape shade

Yes, it’s unconventional and that is why it’s worth the try. With its profound geometrical features, this contemporary modern lighting is a sure visual delight that adds funky yet elegant accent to your office, living room, or bedroom. This example is the Uttermost Billerica In Rectangular Shape Shade Lamp by Uttermost, designed by Billy Moon.

Small shades 

Never underestimate the power of small shades. Small shades get attention simply by being small. Besides being cute, this contemporary modern lighting is perfect for small or medium sized rooms. The image you see is the Uttermost Caperana Bell Shape Lamp by Uttermost, designed by Carolyn Kinder. With its leaf details, this small shade brings a natural and chic impression to your room.

Carabella shades 

Carabella shades display a hut-like feature which almost looks oriental – modern oriental to be specific. It’s unique, cool and definitely a scene stealer. This Uttermost Carabella Table Lamp by Uttermost was designed by Carolyn Kinder. Flaunting a curled metal finish in a crackled oil rubbed bronze, this lamp shade is best for offices and living rooms for its delicate features.

Revamping your home can start by revamping your furniture and lighting fixtures. The samples above are just some of the many lamp shades design available in the market. Just consider your home size and home décor concept. You wouldn’t want to have a furniture mismatch, do you? And when you have a small or medium sized room, it’s better to go for small shades. If there are already too much colors in your room, stick for minimalist and whitewash lamp shades. In contemporary modern lighting, your style is the best style and so you’ll never run out of options.
