Vintage Industrial Style Lampshades

Lampshades are, generally, very boring. Lampshades are the home decorating equivalent of tireflaps on a car. If the lamp is designed properly, you don’t really even need them. That said, much like mudflaps, there’s room for some artistic expression when it comes to your lampshades. Etsy seller Patturn wants to help spice up your living room, which is why they reclaim vintage sheet music, instructions and industrial documents and turn them into lampshades. Each piece will be slightly different, but they’re definitely a better, much cooler looking, alternative to what you’d find at Target, Room & Board or IKEA.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
