What is a Lamp Shade?

lamp shade 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.

Lamp Shade Benefits

  • Directs light upward and downward.
  • Diffuses light through the sides.
  • Directs heat to escape safely.
  • Adds a decorative touch to the room.
  • Breathes new life into an old lamp.
  • Refreshes the look of your lamp.
  • Shields your eyes from bulb glare.
  • Help direct light for tasks and reading.
  • Coordinate with your room decor.

An Empire-Shaped Shade

An empire lamp-shade is a traditional lampshade shape where the bottom is wider than the top. It also features straight sides, forming a kind of triangular shape. The bottom of the shade spreads out more to distribute light, and to shine outward and downward for nearby tasks. The smaller opening at the top helps to funnel bulb heat away from the lamp. An empire lampshade coordinates well with a lamp base featuring straighter or simpler lines, but also works well with almost any lamp shape.

Casual Style

Informal and comfortable, this relaxed style accentuates an airy and unpretentious living space, evoking the feeling of a permanent beach cottage vacation. Casual Lighting uses clean and simple lines, subtle curves, natural textures, and decorative glass for a subtle elegance that doesn’t overwhelm the senses.

Mounts to a Lamp

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.

Love the golden glow! These shades create a soft warm light for subtle ambiance. I use 40 watt bulbs to create warmth in the corner of the room. Nice quality.

Deborah Morris
Exactly as expected

Delivery was quick and shades were as described. First time ordering but not the last. Good experience!

Elegant shades

These shades have given new life to a pair of hand-me-down brass lamps. The gold interior reflects beautifully onto the body of the lamps. My only reservation is that the lamps get quite hot, so I try not to leave them on too long and will look for cooler bulbs. Other than that, I'm very pleased. I also want to give a shoutout to the LampsUSA website. I would have been lost without its information about different shade configurations and sizing and its wide selection of inventory. For one of the lamps, I needed a harp and finial, which I purchased here. Everything worked out perfectly.

Perfect Lampshade

The shade fit my lamp perfectly
Really like the black shade with gold lining

Wouldn't hesitate to buy this again

After running around stores in Los Angeles, I finally checked online. And, sure enough, I found a picture of the exact item that I wanted. I was so happy! It was a little pricy, but I wanted this shade and nothing else. And I own it now! I can't believe the poor selection available in specialty and department stores when it comes to lampshades. Thank you for having items one cannot buy in a big city like Los Angeles!

Carol M.

The lampshade was delivered in good condition. I ordered two for the antique lamps in my living room. The color is a shade or two darker compared to the picture online, which I actually like. It looks so much better in person. The shades look great on my brass lamps. I am very pleased.

D. Barlett
I like them

They say that every room needs to have some black and I completely agree. My newly painted lamp with these shades is it! The silver is rather shiny during daylight, but Ive had the lights both high and low during evenings and the silver is not noticeable. Overall, I like these and I have no regrets buying them.

Additional Information

A Spider Fitter

This shade includes a Spider Fitter

The top of this shade is fitted with a `Spider` fitter, designed to fit on top of a harp. The spider is aptly named with multiple arms which extend out from a central ring to the edges of the top of the shade. The ring sits around the screw thread at the top of the harp, fastened by a screwed-on finial.

The shade does not come with a harp - typically the harp, a two-pronged loop of metal which comes up around the light bulb and joins at the top, is a part of your lamp base. If you need a new harp to go with your shade, see our selection of shade harps.

If your old harp is damaged or missing, or is not the correct height, you may need a new harp so that your new shade will be positioned correctly. Shades with a spider fitter typically have a `drop` of 1/2" to 1" where the spider arms recess downward into the shade to hide the top of the harp. Unless you a replacing an existing shade with a shade the same size you may need a different-sized harp.

You may want to measure from the top edge of the shade down to the center of the fitter. This makes the fitting less visible when viewing the lamp from the side but does raise the position of the shade by the drop distance. Also keep in mind you may prefer not to see any of the socket or bulb when viewing from the side.

See our Lamp Shade Buyer's Guide for more information.
How to measure a lamp shade

Measuring an Empire-Shaped Lamp Shade

Empire shades are typically measured with three dimensions:
  • Top: The diameter of the circle at the top of the shade - measure straight across.
  • Bottom: The diameter of the circle at the bottom of the shade - measure straight across.
  • Slant Height: The diagonal height/length measured in a straight line from the top edge of the shade to the bottom edge. Empire shades feature straight sides, sloped at an angle, so measure flat against the side.
When comparing this shade to the size of an existing shade, make sure to measure using the above rules.

For more information, see our Lamp Shade Buyer's Guide
