Custom Rawhide Lamp Shades Create Chic Rustic Style

Jun 21, 2008
Using custom rawhide lamp shades as part of your home's decor is the best way to give your home authentic rustic or western style. Something I love most about unique hand made lamp shades is the natural glow and inviting environment they create no matter how they are used.

These natural rawhide shades are fashioned out of goat skin, and are wonderful because of their versatility and ability to enhance rustic style home accessories and color schemes.

Great for use in cabins and log homes and anywhere you would like to add great western style, rawhide lamp shades are certainly the best selection in western home lighting and for use on rustic lighting fixtures.

The best part about leather shades is that they come in custom sizes and in natural or dark colored rawhide. No matter if you are choosing a southwestern lamp shade for a large area lamp or simply want custom rawhide lamp shades for small chandelier or accent lamps, you will definitely be able to find the perfect choice for your decorating style.

The beautiful variety of color tones is what gives the rawhide shades such wonderful character. Rustic rawhide shades are available in a stunning darkly smoked color that allows the light to pass through while creating a warm glow and welcoming atmosphere.

The unique rawhide stitching gives the shade a characteristic rustic beauty and fabulous western style. Whether choosing a shade to enhance your home decor or to use along with rustic or log furniture, custom rawhide lamp shades will enhance the rustic appeal to produce beautiful mountain cabin style.

Rawhide lamp shades that have been bleached are a light cream color with natural rust colored highlights that are seen when the light is turned on. These lighter colored shades look stunning when used with natural wooden furnishings and accessories such as log ladders or kiva style ladders.

You will also love the way natural rawhide shades combine with other southwestern decor to create a wonderful harmony in country style and design. Use your hand made lamp shades with matching rustic accessories like Indian baskets and pottery, and Native American Indian blankets for great pueblo, country, southwest or Native American style.

If you enjoy natural light and dark rawhide, you will also love the incredible style of dyed rawhide lamp shades. These custom lamp shades are a great way to add a touch of color to any room while staying within the same southwestern style decorating theme.

Colored shades are first lightened with a bleaching solution and then tinted with dye to reach the perfect color. The finish product is a brightly colored rawhide shade, with a unique grain pattern that is seen when illuminated.

If you would like to buy rawhide custom lamp shades to use with lamps you already own or to go on special rustic lamps, you can conveniently find them online and in certain stores that sell rustic home decor and accessories.

No matter which type of home lighting fixture you choose to display your shade, you will love the welcoming warmth and inviting atmosphere created in your home when decorating with custom rawhide lamp shades.
