I’ve been following the increasing popularity of woven rattan lampshades for a while now. And I think it’s fair to say that they’ve well and truly arrived. Just about every lighting collection has its share of woven lampshades made from rattan, bamboo, seagrass, or some other natural fibre.
A few of them are maybe a touch too “cabana/Ibiza style” for the average UK home, do you think? A bit too grassy, fringy and frothy, and all together looking like they belong in a much hotter and sunnier climate than ours.
But there are absolutely loads of woven lampshades on offer at the moment that, like baby bear’s porridge, are just right. They have a contemporary, fresh, Scandi-vibe and sometimes just a touch of 1970’s bohemian style about them too.
So here are the best woven rattan lampshades (or sometimes other fibres) that I’ve seen lately to add natural texture and a light and breezy note to your decor.

The handwoven shapes of the Yen Bamboo Pendant Lamp Shade create pattern and texture – lit and unlit.

I love how the black cutout ring of the Lovato Pendant Shade, above, adds a stylish contrast to the natural rattan of this chandelier-style light shade.
This Giant Bamboo Pendant Shade is a brilliant way to add oversized lighting to your room whilst still keeping it light, airy and simple.
These drum lampshades from our favourite boho-chic emporium Graham & Green are covered with raffia for an organic, textured twist on a classic style. Choose from Brick Red, above, Natural or Black, pictured below.
