Ruling the Roost is designed by Rory Dobner, and is a collection of vintage rulers collected from his personal travels around the globe.  They each hold not only their own memory, but also a memory of a designer gone global—truly one of a kind.  All rulers are solid wood with metal frames, so the shade is a heavy fixture.  It comes available as a pendant light or a shade for a standing lamp, in straight or sloping sides.

The shade is a piece of design and art beauty, great for a common living space or a child’s room.  The colors are perfectly neutral, so pairing decor is easy.  Use it as a must have piece for your next decoration project or motivation for your own DIY ruler shade, Ruling the Roost is definitely inspirational.
