Lightbulb idea

I've always found it really hard to find lampshades I like.  Not so much for ceiling lights, but for lampbases.  I don't know why, I just don't seem to like that many... So for that reason we don't really have lamps in our house! But then a few months ago I picked up a lampbase in a junk shop for £1, bargain.  But what for the shade?! And then... I see this photo in Rue Magazine:

No need for a shade! Perfect! So, I'm giving it a go with my £1 lamp base with a globe bulb in it...

I actually really like the bare bulb look... 

Decor 8 has some great projects using exposed bulbs...

What do think? Could you go shadeless?!
