Bespoke Lampshades + Tweek’s Instant Lunette

There are a lot of things we like about this interior but this crazy tall, fabulously orange lampshade takes the cake for completely shifting our view of lampshade possibilities. It makes us wonder why most lampshades are so ordinary. We are hard-pressed to find a ready-made shade like this BUT know that the reliable Just Shades will make any shade, from 4 inches to 8 feet. A good shade can transform a lamp the way wonderful shoes can make an outfit.

Meanwhile, our go-to insta-shade that clips right onto a lightbulb to transform just about any lamp or fixture is Tweek Studio’s Lunette shade ($32). We bought four at once and have used them in all sorts of places, from our a bare socket porcelain leftover from the renovation…

Of late, we used it in the bathroom to replace the metal shade on an industrial clips lamp.
