Big-box store

Big-box stores have a selection of paper lamps that you can use as a floor lamp or with a table. These lamps will be in various colours, though most will feature paper shades through which the light from the bulb can be seen. The paper lights will vary in price and construction. You will be able to choose one which will look best with the décor of your room.

Lighting stores

Lighting stores will be able to offer a wider selection of paper floor lamps due to the fact that they are able to offer a specialised inventory. You may be able to find paper shades for floor lamps that are sold separately, as well as floor lamps that are sold with lamp shades as a set. Buying a shade separately gives you the opportunity to turn a lamp that you already own into "new" light fixture without the expense of buying another lamp.

Make your own paper floor lamp

If you have a floor lamp that you like, but you would like to turn it into a paper lamp, then you can make your own paper lamp shade at home. - Buy a large rice paper square at a stationary store or some other supplier, as well as a piece of styrene sheet from a lamp store. - Cut the styrene and the paper to the size that you wish for the paper lamp shade. - Peel off the backing from the styrene and adhere it to the back of the rice paper. - Make marks with a pencil on the styrene so that you can make cuts in the paper in a basket weave pattern. - Cut bamboo garden stakes with tin snips to length and thread them through the cuts. - Pin the paper together so that it forms a cylinder. Wire an Uno top
(available at a lamp store) to the inside top of the shade and put it on your existing floor lamp.
