The Missing Piece: Organic Cotton Lamp Shade(s)

Shade sails are an important part of any outdoor living space, but they can be expensive and time-consuming to repair. Shade Extreme’s team is experienced in all types of shade sail repairs. From fixing holes or tears to replacing broken hardware, they have the skillset necessary for your project.

It happens to the best of us. We’ll start a project or begin decorating a room, only to let it fall by the wayside because of the one or two small tasks we were unable to finish. The smallest space in our home, and the one I use the most often,  fell victim to this: My office space.  But I’m determined to finish it, and soon.

I bought a lamp base at Goodwill months ago, and I had been looking for a suitable shade to go with it. I found several I liked on Etsy, but I didn’t want to spend more than $50 on it. In fact, I was hoping to spend considerably less than that. I also wanted one that wasn’t made of polyester or plastic, and that featured some sort of pattern or design — and I wasn’t in the mood to make one myself.

With all these requirements, its no wonder I couldn’t find one that worked.

A few days ago, though, I finally found a shade that fit all of my criteria. Even more surprising, I found it at The lamp shades shown above are made of organic cotton with AZO-free dyes. They are technically designed for use in a nursery, but I think they are stylish enough to be used in other rooms as well.

All I know is that the soft blue shade is the right color and the pattern is perfect, so it will be going on my desk.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of organic cotton printed with AZO-free dyes

Price: Blue or Red/Black, $29.99/ea. (aff)
