You really don’t know how difficult it is to match a shade to a lamp base until you purchase a lamp base without a shade. My customer purchased this vintage jug lamp base without a lampshade. She could not find just the right shade that would accent the vintage jug lamp base.
She contacted me for a shade that would fit her lamp base. We tried several different sizes and shapes. The simple A-frame shade fit the lamp base the best. We looked through fabric laminated samples and the burlap was the perfect fit.
This jug lamp base, with the burlap lampshade
made for just for this lamp,
is such a nice warm accent light.
