The ultimate guide to drum lamp shades

Lighting designs with round lamp shades

Cylinder lamp shades radiate harmony and security. They are also well-rounded lighting designs - from large to small, from single statement to bundle. Whether sustainable in natural chic, hand-woven, with prints, shiny metallic or completely cosy made of fabric, round lamp shades provide warm light flair. Interchangeable shades bring variety and can be changed depending on the season, room design and mood.

Bring nature to your home

Materials from wood to seaweed

You can achieve a feel-good atmosphere when warm white light falls through round shades made of wood, sea grass and banana plant fibre. Bamboo, coloured slate, paper and hay also bring natural chic into our interiors creatively and sustainably. Warm white light bulbs are a must-have for an extra cosy factor. The way the grains of the materials are traced by the warm white light is fascinating.

A love for patterns

From prints to upcycled coffee bags

Depending on the design, round hanging lamps unfold their light flair just as well in a boho ambience as in an art deco style or natural chic. The warm white light that shines through the round shade allows the patterns to shine beautifully.
