Wicker Goes Modern

I first saw these great wicker shades on eco-designer Danny Seo's blog. Since then I've checked them out at Ikea, both in-store and in the catalog. While I'm not a huge wicker fan, these lamp shades have a cool shape, and the extra-gigantic size for the larger shades—you could fit yourself and a friend's heads and shoulders under one of them—definitely makes an unexpected statement.

While most wicker is bent by being soaked in diesel fuel, IKEA asked that these shades, which are sourced from Vietnam, instead be soaked in palm oil—better for the workers, and for the planet. The shades are currently available in-store and through the catalog, but not yet online.

What do you think about these lamp shades?
