Want to bring some sexy sophistication to a room? I say, add a black lampshade!

  6. I completely second this! My favorite thing right now is a black silk shade on a marble lamp. Dreamy. What a great round up!

  7. You definitely make a good case! I've thought about it from time to time, just so hesitant to bring black into my light color scheme though...maybe in the summer i'll go for the black and white look...

  8. Ya know, when i was 11, my parents let me do a complete makeover on my bedroom. Baby pink walls & giant white dollhouse out! What came in you ask? B&W striped comforter with red accent pillows, a b&w pattern border and a lamp with a black lampshade!

    Apparently I had some pretty hot taste in design in 1991. Ahead of my time perhaps.

  10. Love the black, I have a lot of bold colors and black trim in my house - sounds weird but I swear it goes - some of these shades would do wonders for my living room...
