Last week we spotted this really cool and relatively easy DIY project from the boys at Mini Moderns.

Turn an old lampshade into something a little bit special, using raffia and a bit of patience. We really love the effect it gives and of course you can do this with any size shade.

To get this 1960’s vibe head to Mini Moderns Instagram, hit on their ‘lampshadeinspo’ story, and follow the tutorial.

We are a little obsessed with rattan at the moment and you can currently spot it in furniture and lighting everywhere.

We have picked out these fun lampshades from made.com available in black and natural. Choose from 3 different designs for a modern take on a 70s classic. These shades will look great in any room.

Subtle and elegant, and at £29 this beautiful mouth blown glass lamp shade is a steal from Made.com

We love it’s midcentury influence and the coloured glass tone is perfect. 

It’s smooth on the outside, but with a rippled effect on the inside it creates a lovely light effect. 

This shade would look great in a reading corner or clustered with a few of the same colour, or similar styles but different colours, from the range.
