    Perfect pleat light shades

    Orikomi-PlainWe absolutely love these gorgeous Orikomi lamp shades, just perfect for the summer months. The summer collection is available in a selection of colours and combinations, priced at £35.99 each, and will add the perfect finishing touch to a room. Inspired by the beauty of origami, each lamp shade is handmade in a complex design, with its shape working to soften the light, and looks fantastic coupled with a set of tea lights (£14.99 for three). What we love most of all, is that a portion of the sales profits goes towards the Adobe for Women Association, which helps Mexican women in difficult situations build sustainable and affordable housing. So whilst we can do our bit for our home, we can do our bit for others, too. Check out Casafina for these gorgeous additions, as well as plenty more accessories and ideas for giving your home a boost.
