What are some great lampshade/lamp base combinations?

Mix and Match Lamp Shades

  • Bronze adjustable table lamp base with black bell gold-dotted lampshade
  • Crystal chandelier base with faux leather, eyelash trim or cream chandelier lamp shades
  • Black iron or gold chandelier base with mica hexagon chandelier lamp shades
