Upcycling tip: how to modernise a lampshade
What can you do if your pretty desk light’s lampshade has broken but the light is far too beautiful to simply throw away? Simply design a new lampshade: this is possible in no time at all using a photo poster. We show you how easy this is in our step-by-step instructions!
How to design your own lampshade out of a photo poster
Have a motif of your choice that you want to make into a lampshade printed as a photo poster in 20 x 60 centimetre format at ifolor. Or you can choose the 40 x 60 centimetre format, if you want to select two motifs. This high-quality digital print is produced on tough photo paper, which is ideal for being backlit: used as a lampshade, the paper lets enough light through to create a very special accent in your home. The brighter and whiter the chosen motif is, the more intensive the light will be.
