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.
