HOUSE: Newburgh + Scavenging

New shade, old lamp.

The cute teak lamp I picked up a couple of months ago finally has a new, more appropriately-scaled shade. It’s a SKIMRA shade from IKEA ($8!). I love this series of shades (they can but used on a lamp or a hanging pendant)—it’s hard to tell in the photo, but the black shade has a wide band of dark gray at the bottom. A very subtle but special detail. The shade is 16″ tall, nearly the same height as the lamp base itself.

The lamp has also been moved to a previously empty nook in the living room that desperately needed a bit of lighting, and it makes its home on top of my DIY tray table.

This entire corner brought to you by two $20 bills!

    Wow, that looks amazing! Great choice to go with the scale of the lamp, it adds mad drama! 😉

    It looks very good, though I already liked the lamp with the old lampshade. I also like the industrial look of your radiator, very beautiful and a nice contrast with the subtle look of the lamp and table.
