diy wicker rattan lampshades
We love wicker and rattan items for so many reasons: they add beautiful texture and dimension to a room, they come in every shape and size under the sun, and they have a beach / boho feel that we find irresistible.
Wicker gives a beautiful structural contrast - and relaxes any room it is in. A pair of wicker stools can tone down the formality of a sofa, and an ornate peacock chair adds instant bohemian chic. Not only is rattan incredibly strong and sturdy, but it can also be stained or painted like any other wood. If you want to add a wicker or rattan touch to your interior space, you can buy or build furniture, or opt for lights: they're pretty easy to make. Here are some lampshades you might like!
