Publisher Comments:

Bring the distinction of a stylish, finely crafted lamp into your home or office. The more than 80 lampshades featured here will inspire you to experiment. Whether you want to create from scratch or transform an old favorite into something new and beautiful, here is all the information you need. Start with assessing your décor, then follow the tips for selecting materials, construction techniques, and finishing touches. If you want to carry through a specific room design, make custom fabric shades for a unified motif. If you want to create special nighttime moods through lighting, try designs with interior shapes that are invisible during the day. Today's top interior accessory designers are showcased in a comprehensive four-color gallery, while 15 projects show you how to adapt the basics in imaginative ways. Choose from exotic origami shades, elegant Victorian styles, painted silk, raffia, crochet, and painted-glass lampshades; paper mâché and stained-glass wall lights; mosaic bases; and dozens of other fabulous styles. 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10.
