Add a Welcome Glow With Paper Lampshades

Turn your living room into a beautifully lit space that welcomes guests with paper lampshades. One of the primary benefits of paper shades is they create a soft, warm light that makes spaces feel cozy and inviting. This is useful in living rooms, where people often gather to relax, read, or watch TV.

The delicate material of our empire woven paper lampshades creates a warm glow that inspires a relaxed atmosphere for movie nights, get-togethers, and more. The shade’s texture adds depth and dimension to your living room, further elevating the relaxing ambiance.

Make A Statement With Hardback Lampshades

Give your living room a shot of personality and make a statement with hardback lampshades. These shades create a bold, dramatic effect in a room. Because they are sturdy, they can support larger, more intricate designs than softer lampshades. This means you can choose a modern lampshade with a bold pattern or bright color to make a statement in your living room.

For instance, this hardback lampshade with a marble design is made from opaque gold foil. The unique speckled look is just what you need to pull a room together or complement furniture like sofas and armchairs.

Create Contrast With Drum Lampshades

While sticking to a cohesive color or texture scheme in your decor can be tempting, it can make your living room look too uniform or dull. Instead, mixing and matching different textures, patterns, and materials adds interest and depth to your living space. If you have a lot of wooden furniture or natural textures in your living room, consider pairing them with a drum lampshade made from a shiny metallic material or a colorful fabric to create contrast.

This hardback drum shade comes in multiple sizes and colors, ranging from sky blue and navy to lime and burgundy. So no matter your living room’s color scheme or aesthetic, you’ll easily find a modern lampshade color and size that adds visual contrast and refreshes the space.

Spice Up Your Space With Linen Lampshades

Bland living rooms can go from “blah” to “a-ha!” with a shot of interior design adrenaline. One excellent option to consider is a linen lampshade. They're affordable and offer versatility in design and style, making it easy to update your decor without breaking the bank. Choose a simple, minimalist modern lampshade for a clean, understated look, or go bold with a colorful pattern.

Indulge in a luxurious living room upgrade with our striking splashed blue and white double gourd vase lamp. Crafted with exquisite porcelain, this handcrafted piece boasts a unique texture that adds depth and character to your space. The finely woven linen shade and porcelain vase create a captivating contrast that elevates your decor with a modern edge. Your guests won't be able to resist admiring the chic elegance of your living room with this stunning lamp as the centerpiece.

Mixing and matching lampshades is a playful and creative way to refresh your living room decor. Combining different modern lampshade textures and styles creates a unique, eclectic look that reflects your style and adds visual interest to your living room.

For example, pair our gathered ikat silk empire shade with this black paper with silver interior hardback lampshade. Or, you could pair the natural texture of this jute string empire lampshade with one of our stick lamp and retro drum shade’s vintage-inspired variations. Varying shade shapes and sizes creates a visually exciting look that adds depth and dimension to your living room.
