Karl Hipp Designs offers unique handcrafted custom designs. The motiifs are varied. Western and Rustic sometimes described as Santa Fe style are among the offerings.
All of my lamp, sconce, chandelier or furniture designs are unique. They are based on ideas from my observations. I strive to match the final finish to the particular lamp to match the style and character of the lamp. I offer the choice of a Rawhide Lamp Shade or a Lined Linen Lamp shade with several of my lamps as the lamp may fit into several varied decors. But with a few of my lamps, I offer only the Rawhide Lamp Shade. The reasoning is that the particular lamp, for instance the Large Arrow Table Lamp, is a uniquely western design. The Lined Linen Shade would not be suited to the lamp or the surroundings. That lamp would be chosen for a bedroom in a home that possibly has log walls, heavily distressed wood floors and Hopi or Navajo Indian blankets hanging from the walls as decorative features. The bed might be a log bed with barn wood side tables--a perfect place to rest the Large Arrow Table Lamp with a Rawhide Lamp Shade.
