For thirty years now we’ve seen a lot of creative uses for our wallpaper besides the usual installation on walls and ceilings… for example, art wallpaper lampshades.
Jana Olson, of Panache Lighting, has 16 years of experience in the antique lighting trade, both as a retailer and restorer of old lighting. She loves to help people furnish their homes in lighting which complements the architecture of the house, and the decorating style of the residents. In addition to restoring and repairing lighting fixtures, which is the main part of her business, she enjoys making shades for lights. Choosing a flattering lampshade for your bedside, table, or reading lamp is important, and what could be better than, of course, art wallpapers to provide a rich palette of colors and designs which can be adapted to lampshades.
The photos here show Jana’s house with our Raspberrry Bramble design, done with gold stems rather than brown. With some of the leftover pieces, a lampshade was made, shown on a reading lamp.
She can do this for you, too, with your choice of paper and size of shade, and alternate edge trims. If you see an artistic lampshade in your future, you can contact Jana at: PANACHE LIGHTING, 2743 Ninth Street, Berkeley, CA 94710 Phone and Fax: 510-204-9375 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
