We don’t see as many lamps which feature a rectangular shape, but when one comes into the store, we are ready! There are many variations on the rectangle – some traditional, and others more contemporary, clean lines. The key feature of the rectangle is the greater width versus the depth of the lampshade. Typically, the width (side to side) is greater than the depth of the shade (front to back).
If there is a “standard” rectangle, it would be the rectangle shade shown with our Live Oak Lamp. This particular rectangle shade is made from a coarse burlap fabric.
The rectangle drum lampshade is also an increasingly popular style of rectangle. The drum rectangle is the perfect lampshade for the Currey natural wood “Structure Lamp”.
Further, we have used a rectangle drum frame to create a nautical shade. This particular lampshade in this blog post was especially fun because the charts we used to create the lampshade were from four different cities. When our customers met, they lived in San Francisco and New York. After they married, they raised their children in London and Boston!
We enjoy having lamps in the store that offer angular shapes – squares, rectangles and hexes, for example. One of the more popular smaller table lamps we often display in the store is the rectangle box lamp, which offers a cut corner rectangle bell lampshade.
A variation of the cut corner rectangle bell lampshade is the cut corner rectangle bell lampshade with a “gallery”. Another East Enterprise lamp – the small box accent lamp – is offered with the cut corner rectangle bell with a gallery.
One of the new Hubbardton Forge product introductions is the Cavaletti family – floor and table lamps. Offered in a variety of finishes, these beautifully designed lamps are shown with the new and contemporary Retro Rectangle Drum style.
One of the wonderful things about lighting from Currey and Company is the wide variation in lamp designs. For example, the Secret Table Lamp is a traditionally styled lamp, complete with an inverted corner rectangle bell lampshade.
Whereas the Bellwether Table Lamp offers a much more contemporary design. Complementing the simple lines of the lamp, is a rectangle coolie lampshade.
And, finally the Parrot Lamp is a bit whimsical, designed with a “shabby chic” edge and topped with a nicely trimmed silk rectangle bell lampshade.
One of my favorite rectangle lampshades is the rectangle pyramid, shown here and nicely complementing this rectangular jade lamp designed by East Enterprise. So many wonderful elegant and fun rectangle lampshades!
