Black Light.

I’ve always been drawn to lighting fixtures that feature black materials. Like a black shade in a dimmed library or dining room, it creates a mood that can be both relaxing and somewhat sultry. Black shades block the sideways light and allow the light to permeate only the open ends, adding a warm glow and creating interesting shapes and ray’s across a room, wall or side table. I have a floor lamp in my living room with a dark drum shade that flanks the floor to ceiling fireplace wall and highlights an intimate corner. Voila!
