Drum Lamp Shades
Modern Drum Shade Selection at its Very Best
Sometimes referred to as a barrel shade, the clean, simple lines of a drum lamp shade enhance the look of a transitional or mid-century modern table lamp, floor lamp, ceiling light, or pendant light.
Drum lamp shades come in a wide range of colors and fabrics including shantung silk, linen, parchment, and textured fabric which is molded over brass and steal components.
In addition to its round drum shape, other geometric shapes like shallow square and rectangle drum lamp shades have become extremely popular, as they too emphasize a clean and contemporary interior decorating style.
Our drum lamp shades from HomeConcept are made from the finest materials and guaranteed to be wrinkle-free, lasting for years without yellowing or becoming brittle. Not only do they look great, but a drum lamp shade is easy to install and use.
Softback Drum Lamp Shades versus Hardback Drum Lamp Shades
While the softback drum lampshade provides a greater range of shapes and pleated designs, the more cost-effective, sturdier hardback drum lampshade is constructed using fabric bonded to a plastic styrene laminate. This backing retains its form for many years and gives the drum shade its sleek, round shape.
High quality hardback lamp shades, like the ones from HomeConcept, use only virgin styrene backing and do not crack and become brittle over time like cheaper, low-quality hardback lamp shades.
When to Use a Tall Drum Lamp Shade
Tall Cylinder Lamp Shades look best on a table lamp with a wide-diameter or bottom-heavy base, improving the ‘lamp-to-shade’ proportion and overall eye appeal.
Shallow Drum Lamp Shades are a great fit for narrow lamp bases—in addition to modern floor lamps—as they elongate the floor-to-ceiling line to give the room a taller and minimalistic feel.
