|Handmade Lampshade on Antique Newel Post |
Wooden Floor Lamp
Antique Art Deco Newel Post Floor Lamp with Handmade Lampshade
I just finished trimming this handmade lampshade. It looks awesome on the antique newel post lamp base. We found the base in Cambridge, NY at an antique store and had to have it for one of my special creations.
I think the style is called art deco...not my usual Victorian type shades but close.
This shade is made from silk fabrics in green and gold. The sage green trim accents the double layer of cream colored fringe and gold, brown, and blue scalloped, beaded fringe. It took ten hours to create, but was worth the time and effort.
It is for sale at Exquisite Things Gift Shoppe in Bemus Point, NY.

The back of the lamp here shows where the cord comes from.
The lampshade was easy to make with the silk fabrice and french gimp. I'm pretty pleased with how this cute night light turned out.
I think this would make a very nice baby shower gift or a cute night light for a little girl's room or a sweet night light for a bathroom for your cat lover friend.
It is a one-of-a-kind night light. You can purchase it at http://www.shades-etc.com/novelty.htm for $35 plus shipping.
