There is one style of lampshade that is enjoying a resurgence in popularity - and that is the 'kitchen' lampshade. This has a removeable cover which is made up of a either just an outer fabric, or one that can be lined. According to Margaret Rourke (queen of lampshades as anyone knows) and her book published in 1961, they are ideal for 'any room where frequent washing of light fittings is essential'. Clearly this was before spotlights were invented! The point is, that this lampshade is made of a cover with elastic fitted in a casing at the top and base of the cover so that it can be easily removed. I think these days, we just think they look lovely and particuarly suit the country cottage style! You can now get these from our hand sewn shade shop, or contact me to make one for you in your own choice of fabric.
