Drum Shade Lighting

We love the clean and modern look provided by a drum shade. Not only does it add a sense of style to any room, it’s also functional in helping send light both upward and downward and serving as an accent light.

Here are some of our favorite lighting fixtures with drum shades from chandeliers to lamps to pendants.

This gold chandelier with drum shade sets an elegant and intimate tone in your room whether it hangs over the dining room table, in the foyer or maybe even the bedroom! It comes with a see-through shade with a base of mahogany bronze.

Here’s another more contemporary take on a table lamp with an arm holding the drum shade and light. We think this would fit perfectly in an Arts + Crafts bungalow style home.

Mad About Midcentury Modern: Lighting Fixtures to Complement the Popular Style

With the return of Mad Men in its final season on AMC this spring, everyone is “mad” for the midcentury modern style featured in homes and offices throughout the show. The midcentury modern style, which ran from the 1930’s to the 1960’s, features clean lines and the integration of nature. It was used in architecture, interior design and graphic design.

If you’re looking for some accent pieces to fit a midcentury modern room in your home, consider these lighting fixtures as complements.

This pendant light brings in the warmth of natural materials, a popular element of midcentury modern design, with its wooden slats. The slats are made from polished fruitwood and surround a coarse linen diffuser. Can’t you see this hanging above Don and Megan’s dining room table?
