Before and after

Its great giving a new lease of life to treasured family pieces and this vintage lampbase, belonging to Mel's grandmother is no exception. The brass base have lots of classic elements - claw feet and coloumn details and needed to be re-wired.

Gone in the traditional waisted shade with nylon fringe, replaced with a modern bonded shade in a stunning Romo Silk.

  1. This lamp is retro and fabulous. I came across your post this morning while browsing interior design blogs and your take on interior décor is exquisite. How would you match window treatments with a design such as the one found on the lampshade? It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty.
