sassy lampshade hunting @ MIBO

Mibo shades

I’m over the shabby chic look. I’m over beige on beige. My vibrant soul needs lots of pop of colours.

I’m still waiting on my sassy ottoman and now I’m on the prowl for a sassy lampshade for my large lamp!

While Googling, I stumbled onto the colourful shades by Mibo from the UK.

Mibo shades

I heart this Clacket Lane Small Shade and the Rhossili Red Small Shade but since Australia is not on Mibo’s radar yet, I’ll have to look elsewhere.

What about Target’s white and green leaves shade? That’s pretty cool too and costs heaps less than Mibo’s ultra cool ones. But it feels like made of just plain laminated plastic… *sigh* But at AUD$24 who can complain?

Where else can I get funky shades that SHIPS TO AUSTRALIA? Anyone?
