Six of the best lampshades
Saturday 16 September 1995
2 After Noah, pounds 28.50 Flying-saucer shade based on a mass-produced utility shade from the Thirties. The shop also has a selection of unusual antique lamps. After Noah, 121 Upper Street, London N1 (0171-359 4281)
3 Liberty, pounds 39.95 Small red-silk lampshade with black tassel. Very luxurious, even decadent. Available in a selection of bright colours in various sizes from Liberty, Regent Street, London W1 (0171-734 1234)
4 Brats, pounds 35 Tin lantern suitable for medieval castles or suburban torture chambers. Very dramatic when lit. Brats, 281 Kings Road, London SW1 (0171-351 7674) and 624c Fulham Road, London SW6 (0171-731 6915). Mail- order available
5 BhS, pounds 50 Steel station light. In the past couple of years BhS has shown real improvements in all departments. Its range of lighting in particular is reasonably priced and very inspiring. This would look great in a kitchen or hallway. From BhS branches
6Habitat, pounds 45 Ripple raw-silk cocoon. Would suit those living in an unbleached- cotton, minimalist, futon- bearing environment and is a distinct improvement on those dust-gathering paper globes. From branches of Habitat nationwide
