Hanging shades combine the concepts of a lamp with a chandelier, providing some of the best elements of both. Read More...
Unlike table and floor lamps, heat escape isn't a major consideration, so more of the light can be reflected downward.
Hanging shades are best hung in spaces where you want to focus light in one particular area, while providing a softer light to the rest of the room.
The usual choice of materials for hanging shades is metal and certain types of heat resistant plastic, although many other materials can be used including fabric, glass, and ceramics. When combustible materials are used, the design will tend to be more open to prevent overheating.
Each of the different materials used in manufacture will affect the weight of the finished product which, in turn, affects the required strength of the suspension cables.
Good design for hanging shades is mainly a matter of designing a shade that is beautiful but effective in its purpose of distributing semi-focused light.
The hanging shades in the Christopher Wray collection are amazingly diverse and are mostly intended to make a strong visual statement.
The majority are ideal for home use, while quite a few would also be ideal for use in restaurants, beauty salons, reading rooms, and anywhere that focused light is beneficial.
You will find hanging shades of all different shapes and sizes within the collection. Some are plain and some are coloured; some are opaque, some are translucent, and others are transparent.
With so many different designs to choose from, finding something to suit the space you want to place it in shouldn't be a problem.

Chouchin is a family of suspended lamps that takes its name from traditional Japanese paper and bamboo lanterns used as light and bright signs outside restaurants and bars, or as lucky charms outside homes.

The result combines a warm colouring, textured and precious, with a luminous collar that projects an intense, direct beam of light downwards.
