16" Snowball shades which will be installed as chandelier fixtures, hanging at different levels in a stairwell.
Snowball shades are a perfect choice for chandelier fixtures due to their depth and irregular lower edges. For this pair, we used a variety of mottled, streaky and textured glasses. The medium blue sky at the top of the shade blends into off whites, green, and rose tones to give the shades a natural color theme. The shade is shown on our new Artichoke Trumpet base.
