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.
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.
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.
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.
This is a beautiful little shade for a very old lamp. The color when the light is off is kale; a true green. However, I use a pink incandescent bulb in the lamp, and it transforms the shade color into a bronzy-rose. It is so soft and different. It’s a bit like having two shades. Really sweet and lovely.
It updated a vintage lamp nicely, I lucked out on finding the right color, size and price. Thank you. Already thinking of other lamps that need attention! Good service, prompt. Would use again
It was difficult to find a medium sized clip on shade at a good price, so was VERY happy to find this one! It is perfect for my lamp base and I absolutely LOVE the beautiful color - it really adds a special color accent in the room. (It is also a very good quality shade.) Highly recommend Lamps USA!
The lamp shade looks great. Your measuring instructions were very helpful. The size and color match the lamp perfectly.
Product is high quality and excellent service. Will do business again when needed.
Lovely leaded crystal lamp was perfectly finished by this shade. Color is great, and arrived very quickly.

This lampshade is well made and This lamp shade is well made and sized as described. I ordered three of them in different colors. The green one is a little darker than I expected and looks brown when the light is turned on.
