Whatever form of lighting you choose, can be topped off with a southwest rawhide lamp shade. You have already chosen most of your furniture and accents, but the lighting fixtures you choose should also carry through the southwest theme. To make sure that your lamps and other fixtures look authentic as well as attractive, choose a rawhide lamp shade. Nothing will complete the southwest look of any room as well as one of these lamp shades. When deciding on the decor for your southwest themed home, it is important to pay attention to the design details. No one is finished with their decorating once they have chosen the furniture and rugs. The lighting that you choose to carry through your southwest style should match and accentuate each room. 

One of the most important design elements of any lighting fixture is the shade. Nothing will go better with a rustic lamp than a rawhide lamp shade. A combination of artistry and rusticity, a rawhide shade will give any room what might be considered the finishing touch. Southwest rawhide shades are handmade, one at a time, by skilled and dedicated artisans. These rawhide shades are laced with leather, making sure that the rustic look of the ranch will be carried through to every detail. Rawhide shades are available for a wide range of lamp types. These shades come in all sizes in order to fit floor lamps, table lamps, sconces and chandeliers. Many colors are available and echo the vibrant shades of the southwest. A natural rawhide lamp shade will cause you to think of the sand stretching from a southwestern mesa to a butte. Purchased to fit any southwest lamp you may have, custom made rawhide shades come in all sizes. 

Even creating the southwest rawhide lampshades are an organic experience. A skilled artisan must prepare the hide properly. After the hide has been cleaned, it is bleached to make sure that the natural beauty of the hide will show through when used on a lamp. The rustic character of the ranch will not be lost due to the unique hand stitching. Rawhide shades are a natural product and must be respected as such. Simply by using caution, your rawhide shade will last many years. Any natural product can be affected by heat and cold, and your shade is no different. The heat from the light bulb in the lamp and even air-conditioning can cause some deterioration in the shade. You can be assured that it will last for years by taking a certain amount of care. You will enjoy it as it sheds a warm western glow over your home. You will find that by conditioning the shades with oil, they will last longer than they would otherwise. Many people find that neatsfoot oil works well for them. Instead of an incandescent bulb, you may want to use one of the newer, cooler fluorescent light bulbs in your lamp.
