I was looking for a new lampshade to replace the original one that came with my lamp, and when I saw the Empire lamp shade in chocolate burlap, I thought it would be perfect. I called the company and spoke with an extremely nice and helpful customer service rep, and placed my order. The shade arrived within just a couple of days, extremely well packaged. It fits my lamp perfectly, and looks 100% better than the original shade. The color in my photo is a little off. The shade in person looks just like the photo on the website. I love my new lampshade, and I love Lamps USA!
