Today I had the task of trying to locate lampshades for a couple of lamps. It seemed like a simple task, I was wrong. So much of the same thing, the wrong colour or size was off or the style wasn’t suitable. I think I will advise my client we have to wait and order in what we need and really wanted. It will be worth the wait.
It is amazing to me when there are so many beautiful light fixtures and lamps available that in the limited space of a retail outlet that they choose to cram so much into it, the ability to actually see what is there is lost. Also why are they almost always all the same? It is no wonder there are so many homes still have the original builders light fixtures.
Lighting is such an important element in our homes, that putting the effort into making the right selections is significant. Shape, size and finish direct so much of our decor. Not only the ability to see in good light, but to be able to control the amount of light necessary for any given task or to create the right ambience. So my advice is don’t settle for what you see in the retail stores. It is worth the wait!!
