Ikat Lampshades from Pooky!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again (and again): you can never have too many lamps. See also, pairs of lamps. And lampshades, obvs.

When Pooky got in touch to see if I'd like some Ikat shades to share with you on the blog, it was a total no-brainer. I was already a big Pooky fan - they have a gorgeous selection of mix and match bases and shades that I'd often drooled over.

I also had the perfect pair of vintage faceted ginger jar style bases, sat sadly on my lamp shelf, just begging to be teamed up with some lovely shades, and put into use.

Yes, I do have a lamp shelf. For lamps that need fixing, spraying, ones without shades or just currently homeless, and also shades with no suitable bases. Told you I love lamps.

The vintage bases were a snip from ebay years ago, and I'd just sprayed them white (like my bedside lamps), which is a great trick when pennies are tight. Then you can spend more on lovely new shades, to dress them up, letting the shades be the stars as they are here.

I knew that the Ikat shades in Black Zig-Zag would look great against the off-black walls in our bedroom, on the white bases. I was very tempted however, to choose the Orange Zig-Zag which is really pretty too. Actually, come to think of it, so is the Eau De Nil Zig-Zag, and the Heraldic multi-coloured print. Basically, they're all lovely, so you're spoiled for choice.

The shades are so beautifully made. The pleated straight edge empire design is traditional, and paired with the gorgeous linen Ikat print, they're given a unexpected twist. They're timeless, super versatile, and would work in almost any interior. They're also lined which I hadn't realised until I received them. I've never had a lined shade before, and it really makes them feel even more special and luxurious with that attention to detail and finish.

As you can see, they're currently flagging the chest of drawers in the bedroom, and they're perfect there, but I don't get to look at them there as much as I'd like, so I might see how they look in the dining room where they can be seen and admired more. No doubt you'll see them popping up again somewhere else soon.

Do go and check Pooky out. They have a fab selection - you won't be disappointed!

  1. These are so pretty! Gah. Now I'm looking around the house to see where I can add another lampshade. Like you, I have a bit of a collection but I NEED THEM ALL. xxx
