All of our dome Foldi Shades come folded in a beautiful box and include two balloons and a mounting piece so that you can hang it on your pendant light. It only takes a few moments to open the box, unfold the shade and place a balloon inside the shade and blow it up. After that you simply spray it down with water, tie it up and let it set for a few hours to harden.
After that all you have to do is hang it from any pendant that uses an E26 base (normal sized) and bulb. Mix and match multiple colors, shapes and styles of Foldi Shades to create the look that's perfect for your space. Great to use with hard-wired hanging pendant lamps or with plug-in pendant lights.
For a beautiful glow we recommend using a Globe shaped G40 sized light bulb with a Matte White finish with the Large and XL sizes, and G30 bulb with the smaller dome Foldi Shade. This will really allow the shade to "glow". And if you're looking for a more dramatic effect then match the large and XL dome Foldi Shades with our Matte White Oval (7" diameter) bulb and the small dome Foldi Shade with our G40 Matte White Bulb. This allows the bulb to slightly stick out from the bottom and gives a very Mid-Century Modern vibe.
*IMPORTANT - Only use Foldi Shades with LED bulbs.
During different parts of the day the colors of the lamp shades can appear at times to be different hues than shown in these photos.
