I have a "large" apartment in NYC, which means I I live in a large living/dining room with a sofa bed, while the bedroom became a storage place a long time ago.
Therefore, I must find a way to optimize my space. My motto: "there is always room for one more". Unfortunately, that does not apply to lamps and shades. I have only one chandelier.
But I fight glassy boredom by patiently putting together sets of 4 shades. It takes persistence, patience, and a willingness to spend countless hours searching for the missing one. It does pay off.
Pic. 1: four Kralik rough crackle shades in orange and green. Xmas.
Pic. 2-3 :Four Kralik rose bloom shades: in four different colors, pink, yellow, blue, and frosted whites. It took years to get them from the same dealer, except the latter. They are all 4.25 tall.
Pic 4. Four etched Krasno shades with a soft veil of iridescence. I use them in winter, for added light.
I just got another set of 4 at a basement bargain price. Imagine vivid deco multicolored spatter. Party time, any season!
