Country Living features Custom Lamp Shades!

custom lamp shade featured in Country LivingCongratulations to John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon of the interior design firm Madcap Cottage. Country Living Magazine recently showcased their incredible Catskills home. As a result, an elle daniel custom lamp shade (commissioned by these two interior design gurus) appears in the following article: This Converted Schoolhouse Is Filled to the Brim With Colorful Decor.

Madcap’s beautifully renovated Catskills cottage is the perfect setting for a one-of-a-kind elle daniel lamp shade. The custom lamp shade (part of a matching pair) is pictured to the right. You may also view it by clicking on the article link (here) and scrolling to the photo of the bedroom. I created this hexagon lamp shade with exquisite Laura Ashley fabric.

When you read the Country Living article, you’ll see how Madcap Cottage has succeeded in “infusing a cozy schoolhouse with larger-than-life charm.” Each room offers resplendent eye-candy and splashes of color. With passion and boldness, the Madcap geniuses create a bright and beautiful setting.

In the same vein as Madcap, I am a fan of mixing colors and patterns. My custom lamp shades are designed to add style and flair to any space. Why settle for generic or overly-used decor — when you can enjoy something entirely new? Custom lamp shades are a wonderful way to show off your own unique, fun and bright personality.


Linda Daniel is a rebel with a cause. An avid rule-breaker and non-conformist, this fierce firecracker founded elle daniel, inc, a custom lampshade design firm, when she discovered there were few options to the common white shade. An ever-classic middle child, Linda screams for attention with her whimsical, bold and eclectic designs. Inspired by Dorothy Draper’s passion for mixing colors and patterns, she magically converts a mundane area into a fresh, charming haven. Each elle daniel shade is handmade and signed by the artist and is an extension of Linda’s natural flair to surprise and delight her clients around the world.
