Marcus Mumford did what we all do after a great party, he pinched a lampshade from the Oscars

The chance to nab something from the glorious Oscars set designed by architect and Tony Award-winning designer David Rockwell? Well, we'd take it...

Marcus Mumford did what we all do after a great party, he pinched a lampshade from the Oscars

 

Architect and Tony award–winning set designer David Rockwell devised a set for the 93rd Academy Awards that allowed the proceedings to go off without a hitch with adequate social distancing —and he was given an entire train station to do it.

Last Sunday, Los Angeles’s historic Union Station was transformed into a glittering venue for the Oscars’ main event and pre and post shows. The concourse’s 110-foot-long walnut ticket counter was swept over by a miniature amphitheater for the star-studded audience that included Brad Pitt, Viola Davis, Regina King, and Harrison Ford. Every table looked as if it was on a Parisian balcony.

“The concept was really a very simple but beautiful dinner party,” Rockwell told Elle. “In some ways, we had an invitation to return to that kind of intimacy, and that kind of connection.”

Is it any wonder then, that Carey Mulligan’s husband — rocker Marcus Mumford — seems to have acquired a limited edition 2021 Oscars lampshade from the ceremony?

From the looks of the musician’s Instagram photos from the 93rd Awards ceremony, in which the 34-year-old shared a carousel of photos supporting his actor wife, who was nominated for Best Actress for her work in the film Promising Young Woman, the unusual souvenir was too much to resist.

In addition to sharing photos of his burger, the back of Mulligans’ glorious Valentino dress and his Chanel eye pads, one image sees the musician holding an Oscars-themed lampshade from their table at the event.

In the snap, Mumford can be seen holding the glittery lampshade in his hands while riding in a transit car, with the sleek piping with ‘2021 Oscars’ visibly emblazoned on the lampshade’s rim for all to see.

Be it a moment of much-needed lightheartedness in a very traditional pompous ceremony or if he really did get to keep it, we say hat’s off.

Who wouldn’t love to build a room around such a thing? And who hasn’t tried to swipe something from a party you know you’ll never forget?
