I have been noticing a wonderfully chic trend in lighting recently. Again, I hesitate using the word trend. However, beautiful patterned lampshades were once reserved for those who could only afford custom design- not anymore! It is really something how a beautiful lampshade can immediately elevate a room. You can easily take a plain white or acrylic lamp base and add a punch of pattern and color. I have rounded up some of my favorite rooms incorporating patterned lampshades, as well as my personal picks that can chicly light up your living room.
