Plain paper lampshades used to only be found in student and other cheap rented accommodation, but this Astra Paper Lantern proves that paper shade can also be for the discerning.
The shape of the shade is the same round shape that was typical of these shades in their heyday in the 1970s, but it is elevated in the style stakes by the print. The pattern is a midcentury-style design with petal/leaf shapes and atomic rays in circles. It is made from 100% recycled paper and a 1% donation from every purchase is made to the US Nature Conservancy charity. And the best thing – it costs just £10.99.
Buy the shade from Pussy Home Boutique.
