I love both looks and that's why I tend to take an eclectic view where my own home furnishings are concerned.
I like to mix things up a bit and that's why I love this black lace lamp.
Lace lampshades can, to my mind conjure up a fussy, boudoir look, but this lamp combined with its simple base, cream shade and delicate, unfussy black lace cover would look great in any room.
The black and cream combination gives it a classy, expensive look, however at only £19.95 it's affordable.
If you like it you can buy it here.
