Do you love a bit of pineapple décor?
This is a stunning lamp base that I found a few months ago. I was tempted to try and make my own lamp shade for it but in the end deferred to the talented team at Shady Designs who are located around the corner from me. They suggested this magnificent palm frond shade to complement the turquoise base.
This isn't a makeover in the strictest terms as I have done nothing to the actual lamp base except remove a tonne of dust but I did have the lamp professionally rewired and it's now tagged and safe. Thanks again to Lisa and Arif from Shady Designs who organised that for me.
I just love this lamp but it really needs to go live near the beach or in a funkier house than mine. It's is for sale. It's going to make someone very happy.
If you are in the market for lampshades then you must check out Shady Designs when next in Rozelle/Lilyfield. Lisa started the business a few years ago and the business has grown and now Lisa's husband Arif has also joined the business. It's fantastic to see handmade businesses flourish and I am beyond happy to collaborate with Shady Designs for this project.
The lamp is just a fraction under 1m tall and weighs around 6kg so pickup from Lilyfield is preferable.
What do you think of the shade? My natural inclination is for something plainer but after having the lamp in my house for the weekend I think it can definitely carry this design and really needed something fabulous.
and fabulous it certainly is!
