Linen Lighting For Spring
Linen shirts, linen skirts and linen dresses all make us think of warmer days and nights this time of year. So why not add linen to your home decor and table? Formal linens that require ironing are best kept for winter and fall meals or holiday. Easy spring entertaining and decorating is all about less fuss. Linen lamp shades added to existing light fixtures or chandeliers can transform the piece and make it feel lighter, perfect for spring! Here are some of our favorite lighting related decorating ideas for Spring or any time of the year when you want to introduce soft texture and a casual feeling to your home.
Love the taupe linen tapered drum shade combined with the rope base on the Kenroy Jakarta traditional table lamp. Add ambiance to a nautical or coastal theme for summer.

From Terrain, (the new garden lifestyle offshoot of Anthropologie) this linen-like shade made from sea grass over the simple seeded glass base. Of special interest is the exaggerated linen like weave.
For a casual room, we like this split bamboo lamp with a gold linen weave tapered drum shade.
Add a linen shade to an existing lighting fixture you love. These small Sea Gull Lighting crËme linen fabric shades would work for a chandelier or wall sconce.
For more drama in your living room design, chose a dark or black linen shade. The Uttermost Betsy traditional accent lamp set has antiqued black finish cast metal bases. They work well for a console table or buffet.
Love the hammered bronze finish on the Kichler Lighting Missoula table lamp. The simple urn shape is nicely complimented by a linen drum shade.
The brown & cream glazed jug with cream linen drum shade of the Kenroy Beamus lamp would look great in a farmhouse or Mediterranean style room.

We love the salvaged architectural feel of the Pennsylvania Finial Lamp, from Terrain. The linen shade is a nice contrast to cast concrete base.
