So very pleased to announce that FollyandGlee is now stocking our very own line of wire ghost lamp shades and ceiling pendants.
It's taken a while but we were determined to be able to offer ghost shades in authentic vintage shapes that will fit both the new standard European fittings ie a 45mm lampholder as well as the old UK 28mm lampholders.
I've had plenty of time whilst we'be been designing and commissioning to get inspired by other "ghost" frames out there.
Perhaps the most striking and enormously popular with those super stylish Scandanavians are the unadorned lamp frames. Beautifully shaped armatures left in their natural wire state for an industrial vibe or powdercoated for a pop of colour.

Such a great structure in there own right but oh is so tempting to adorn them with a few treasures. And of course you can change your display from time to time....perhaps with the seasons or simply as the mood takes you.

Why stop there eh? Being such a lover of fabric it's hard to resist yet another option - wrapping your ghost frame in fabric and hanging the odd ribbon garland? Take care here. If you are going to hang your shade as a decorative mobile only you can really go to town with the amount of embellishment you add. Please if you are going to light your shade or pendant do take care to placedecorations away from direct heat and ideally treat them with a fire retardant fabric spray.

There are just a handful of two extra large ghost shades in a fabulous neon pink in the shop right now. One is a scalloped bell shape, the other more tulip shaped.
We love the fact that these are big but we will be offering several colours very soon plus alternative sizes and shapes.
The pink ghost shades are photographed with our fabulous ceramic lampholders with a groovy pink flex also available in the shop. Of course you don't have the hang them as ceiling pendants - we love them fitted as a standard lamp or even balanced alone as a table lamp.
What will you do?
