Liberty print red 'kitchen' lampshade
This small but perfectly formed lampshade has been made using a red Liberty art fabric, the bright red background has a lovely ditsy flowers of yellow, white and pink, and have vibrant green leaves. Around its 'waist' is ribbon of red and white stripes, tied with a red/white button.
The 'kitchen' style of lampshade was originally designed so that it has a removeable cover that could easily be washed - considered important as these were the days before spotlights or other hidden lights appeared in kitchens. However they have now reappeared today in the best kitchens and other rooms just because they are so nice to look at, as well as giving out a lovely glow of light in any room!
The covers are stitched along one side seam, have elastic in the top and base seams to create the openings from which the light shines. The shade cover is then pulled over the frame, drawn in at the waist giving pleats around the frame. As the shades are not lined, the light also shines through the fabric really showing off any pattern.
Please note all our kitchen lampshade covers are treated with fire resistant spray and we recommend a 40watt bulb.
