A lamp shade is a decorative shade which typically surrounds a light source. Table lamps and floor lamps often use a lamp shade. The shade itself serves multiple functions, directing light upwards for ambient light, and downwards for nearby tasks. The funnel shape also helps heat to escape from the light bulbs. Some light may diffuse through the sides of the shade as well. The shade also protects your eyes from light-bulb glare and can become a part of your room's decorative style. Replacement lamp shades are a great way to refresh a lamp or light fixture. They attach to the lamp usually with a harp or fitter and finial.
A drum lamp shade resembles a barrel or drum shape. The sides of the shade are completely vertical, or near to. They go straight up and down, which means the top and bottom of the drum lampshade are usually about the same size. This produces a somewhat more modern look, and equal amounts of light may emit out the top and bottom of the shade. Due to its cylinder shape, the shade easily allows bulb heat to escape. A cylindrical drum shade coordinates well with modern lamp bases or a base with a clean profile.

Sits on top of a harp or fitter, which is typically attached to a floor or table lamp. Spider-fitter shades sit on top of a harp fitter (a separate item). Uno fitter shades sit below the bulb with the uno fitter above. Clip-on shades clip directly onto the light bulb.
The beautiful shades replaced two very old, raw silk shades from 40 years ago. While they were not the raw silk, they complemented our marble and brass lamps perfectly!
I extremely please with these lamp shades. They are well made and have a simple design for what I consider a classy look. Plus the linen finish and color of white, make our living room is now so much brighter! I was very happy to find LampUSA for my purchase.
They are beautiful I am very pleased with them thank you
A friend willed me a beautiful crystal lamp with ten (10) teardrops and a large drum shaped fabric pleated shade (with scallops at the top and bottom). Being fabric, and old, the fabric had begun to rot. I had searched for a long time for a new shade, and could not find one large enough until I stumbled upon Lamps USA. I found just what I needed and the shipment was prompt. The lamp looks new, and I am very happy with the shade and the service!
They look good.

They have the perfect styling we were looking for, and not the plain, undersized ones offered in other local stores.
