Chandelier with shade – IKEA Kristaller + Nymö hack

I used the Nymö lamp shade and added the IKEA Kristaller crystal chandelier. You’ll get a very unique chandelier with shade.

Chandelier with shade - IKEA Kristaller + Nymö hack

Materials for my chandelier with shade:
  • Kristaller chandelier
  • Nymö lamp shade

For this hack, you can certainly use any lampshade of your choice.

It just needs to be big enough to contain the KRISTALLER chandelier, but short enough for some of the crystals to peek through.

Flip the switch and watch the magic!
