This textured linen has been one of my most asked for fabrics. It took a lot of searching to find a fabric that ticked all the boxes for this one. With such a simple fabric, it needed to be just what I was looking for. It couldn't be any old ordinary linen. If you know me, you know I am really particular about my whites. The right soft white needs to be just right - not too cool, not too yellow, not too grey. And I wanted something with a visual texture that can stand up in the line-up with my other beautiful fabrics, including my handwoven ones (which are extra special to me). This linen deserves a place in my line-up, and I hope that it is exactly what you have been hoping for in a textured linen shade.
Pro Tip: For optimal performance, choose your bulb based on your shade size and not on what your lamp base can handle.
While LEDs emit less heat than the old incandescent bulbs, heat output is not the only thing that affects the well-being of your shade. Lumen output can still have an affect on how quickly a shade yellows with time. A larger shade can handle a higher wattage (or lumen output) bulb, and a smaller shade can handle a lower wattage bulb
Lumen output is how we determine wattage equivalents. A 60W incandescent light bulb that uses 60 watts of power gives off a minimum of 800 lumens of light. A 60W equivalent LED light bulb also gives off a minimum of 800 lumens. This lumen output can still affect a lampshade over time, even if we don't see any immediate damage being done and it never gets warm. I recommend not using more than a 40W equivalent on a 9 in. diameter shade.
