Leather Lamp Shades Create Authentic Western Style

Jul 22, 2008
Try leather lamp shades for western decorating and interior design. The use of beautiful rustic shades has become more prevalent in recent years as decorators have become more and more aware of how simple it is to create western and country style in any room, by simply using a rustic lamp shade as part of the home's decor.

The popular style you come across in the southwest and in designer magazines can be readily copied by simply replacing the shades on lighting fixtures you already have, or by putting them on specially designed rustic lamps like wooden and antler lamps. Leather lamp shades come in a natural color and are also dyed in a variety of colors that look amazing and are great for use with any color scheme.

What I like most about rustic lamp shades is their versatility and the way they accent Native American decor. These hand-stitched, rustic lamp shades are created from soft pigskin, suede leather that is mostly opaque and has a unique finish because of the natural small hair follicle holes on the hide.

Wonderful for directing light both upward and outward, leather lamp shades are popular for use on desk lamps, table lamps, floor lamps, chandeliers, wall sconces, antler lamps and all rustic lamps. It doesn't matter if you are trying to illuminate a spacious room with floor lamps or other rustic lamps, or are only trying to brighten a dark area with table lamps or accent lamps, leather lamp shades will give you the perfect lighting effect in lighting your home.

You will love the warm glow of rustic lamps shades and the inviting warmth they create when using them in combination with other western style design accessories like Native American rugs and American Indian pottery or with rustic furniture. Knowing how you will use the shade is one thing to figure out before making a purchase. Big lamp shades that give off more light are better for reading and illuminating a big room, while smaller shades work well for accent lamps or brightening a smaller corner.

Leather lamp shades used on table lamps or bedside lamps can make a dramatic statement and bring authentic southwestern style to any room. Whether used with traditional style lighting fixtures or on special western lamps, leather lamp shades are the best way to achieve the rustic design that you love. The wonderful versatility of western leather lamp shades make them appropriate for use in your living room, office, den, bedrooms and in any other room where you would enjoy adding southwestern style.

They also look great in rustic style homes and are the perfect way to bring out the natural beauty of its surroundings. Today, it is easy to buy leather lamp shades online or find them in shops that sell Native American style decorating items. If you love western style in home decorating, and would like to enhance old west style in your home decorating, try using the unique beauty of rustic leather lamp shades for your interior design.
