Lampshades with a clipped, scissored aspect have the advantage of filtering the light and creating a sweet shadowplay, in addition to favoring the distribution of some indirect light to the ceiling.

Employing natural materials such as these in our home will make it instantly appealing. And the best news of all is that these materials can be used in all manner of different areas within a living room for example; wooden wall units, bamboo book cases and natural stone floor tiles.
