The Cloud Shade Lamp is a simplified version of the original Smart Cloud. Decorative and whimsical, the Cloud Shades has a very different lighting style to that of the Smart Cloud and RGB Cloud. Think of the Cloud shade as more of a traditional lamp shade where there is an LED bulb in the center that is controlled via mains on/off or dimmer switch.The Cloud shades can be installed two different ways. The Hardwire Option will require a junction box and a licensed electrician. If you are replacing an existing pendant or planning to use our designs in a new building or renovation, this option may be preferable, since it offers a cleaner, simpler final look. The Hardwire kit comes with 6 feet of electrical cord, a 5 canopy, a mounting kit, exposed wires, a cord grip and wire nuts that allow you to wire the power converters on the lamp into your junction box.The Swag Option is a bit less tidy but easy to do yourself and only requires a standard wall outlet. Simply screw the included Swag Hook into a ceiling or beam, and run the cord to the nearest outlet. This option comes with 10 feet of electrical cord, a US polarized plug with a switch near the plug end, two hooks, and two cord grips.
