You probably don’t want a chandelier in every room in the house. Pick the room where it would work best, and they choose other types of lighting for other rooms. Chandeliers are more ornamental. And for a great look many people go with a crystal chandelier because it immediately grabs your attention when you walk in a room. But again, match the crystals to the surroundings. What you want to avoid is using chandeliers in smaller rooms. Crystal chandeliers are known to throw light directly on the face and using big lights could end up creating shadows all over the room. Your family as well as visitors could find the situation disturbing.
Cover your existing lamp shades or lamp shade frames with your chosen materials. Glue in place using a glue gun folding in the edges to neaten them. Fabric may need to be stiffened by using iron on backing. (Apply this after you cut the fabric otherwise you will have more difficulty cutting the shape. If necessary, paper can also be stiffened by gluing onto thin card. If covering a shade in fabric, in addition to applying glue, stitch the fabric in place with small stitches around the top and bottom of the frame to secure into place.
Geometric Tiffany lamps were designed using glass cut into basic shapes such as squares, triangles, diamonds, and rectangles and used only one or two colors. The geometric designs included the Lotus Leaf, Acorn, Spider web, Parasol, Nautilus Seashell, Indian Basket and Turtleback designs. These designs are very symmetrical and were some of Tiffany’s first work. Although a symmetrical design may seem a little boring, Tiffany’s use of color and shapes made the lamps come alive.
Rawhide and leather chandelier lamp shades are a superb option for southwestern or metal chandeliers and lights. Because they are an easy way to incorporate southwestern style that looks great with southwestern and Native American accessories, many designers are choosing to incorporate them in their design projects. Sometimes you will see these kinds of lamp shades used on large lighting fixtures in hunting cabins, western homes, and steakhouse restaurants where a southwestern design style is used. You will most likely be surprised at how easy it is to incorporate western design into your interior design by simply using rawhide lamp shades on your chandeliers and wall sconces, or on lamps that need a smaller size southwestern style shade.
