Circa loves the Coolie Shade

The coolie shade... it's an exaggerated shade resembling a coolie hat, used by historical Chinese laborers. The top diameter measures much smaller than the bottom diameter, creating this dramatic look. 

Here are a few examples of how Circa incorporates the coolie shade on products around the shop. These shades are available for custom order through Lux Lampshades. 

This lamp is on order for the Birmingham store! 

Here are some examples of how designers have incorporated coolie shades in their interiors.
