The Loomi Light Kit is a beautifully constructed modular light shade that fits in just about anywhere. Made from recyclable, interlinking quadrilaterals that easily connect, the lamp shade is easily transformed into all sorts of shapes and sizes.
The Eliminator by Merve Kahraman is a desk lamp that uses shredded paper as its shade. It allows the user to totally customise the lamp depending on what paper the user chooses to shred.
At the base of the lamp is a plate that catches the discarded paper for easy disposal.

I love anything that can serve double duty, like a table that folds into a partition, or a cell phone cover with space for your cards and ID. This lampshade from Czech designer Krystyna Pojerova certainly does that. It was developed with the modern desire to grow herbs in the kitchen. The lack of space meant that the herbs would have to be hung from the ceiling. Such an innovative design surely deserves to be put into production.

My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia blogger, Kristin, has an amazingly easy drum light shade tutorial for us today. She uses inexpensive, easily available supplies like embroidery hoops, hot glue and illustration board to make a design feature that will add an elegant touch to bedroom, dining room or lounge decor. I’ve even see drum light shades in classy bathrooms of high-end hotels.
Kristen’s tutorial is easy to follow and quick to do, so all you require is a short shopping trip away and the results are limited to your imagination and the existing decor of the room you are going to hang your drum light shade in.
