Marquita Sanford. Lamp. June 17th , 2017.
Smaller antler chandeliers are sometimes fashioned from whitetail deer antlers while large chandeliers may have many tiers of huge elk antlers. Weather your decorating space is large or small an antler chandelier will compliment western home furnishings.
Henna Lamps: One of the most beautiful of them all is the Moroccan henna lamps, which will add a class and bring elegance to your living room as well as your life. Your neighbors would stare at them, look at you with envy and ask you where you found them. The Moroccan Henna lampshade is a symbol of subtleness mixed with style and any thing that is related to art, history and culture is always looked at as being a class apart. These lamps are unique decoration items and they will add some color to your otherwise normal life. You can place them anywhere be it on top of the piano or the fireplace or place them gently over the center table. They have this uncanny nature of fitting in anywhere and everywhere.
One of the most popular special effects is the \"rosette\". Here again the flower theme is repeated with sewing techniques that result in rose-like puffs. Usually they are combined with pleating or shirring that finishes the look. Another method is \"fan pleating\" - a pattern that is reminiscent of the fans used by Victorian ladies to cool themselves. Lace or burn-out velvet are often sewn on adjoining panels.
The shade is finished with braid, lace, ribbon and specialty trims. The finishing trim is applied either by sewing or with hi-tech bonding agents (not hot glue). Fabulous hand-dyed fringe or sparkling beads and matching tassels for pull chains complete the finishing touches.
During the Victorian era lighting was primarily from gas. But with Edison's improved design of the incandescent light bulb in 1879, electric lighting began replacing gas lighting in Victorian homes. This change became the catalyst for a variety of lamp shades made to shield the glaring light bulbs.
