The lamp shades carry designs, paintings or screens that show up brilliantly under a light source. The elaborate designs on these shades further give an enhanced look to the entire shade. They are available in all possible shapes and sizes from simple square or circle or glode shapes to the abstract patterns, stars, figures etc. As people are getting more environment-conscious, handmade paper is replacing conventional paper.
