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.
I am very pleased with the lamp shades. I ordered two, one for each of the lamps on the sides of a bed. The material looks first rate and the workmanship good. If I have a complaint, it seems the two shades aren't exactly the same shape, but I am probably the only person in the world who would notice. Shipping was prompt and they arrived with no damage. I did not order the recommended 13" harps, so I had to find them locally which was an ordeal I wish I had avoided. The whole order process went well and the product was as advertised. I recommend highly LampsUSA.
Just awesome. Product accurately described and arrived fast. More than happy with purchase. Definitely recommend Lamps USA and would purchase again.
Looks good, fits, as advertised
They were exactly what was needed!
Product is great and the service was speedy.
This shade came in undamaged despite the packaging. We figured it would be damaged based on the packaging when it arrived, fortunately it was not. The shade fits our needs.
I needed an economical 19" shade as a replacement for an older lamp, plus it needed to be white to allow for maximum light in a small room. Many Google searches resulted in minimal selection; however, Lamps USA continuously came to the top of the list. They offered the size and color I needed, but the shade was sold out by the time I went to order it. I reached out to Lamps USA via email and I was extremely impressed with their prompt personable responses as I tried to determine when the shade would be in stock again. The rep was also incredibly helpful when I requested assistance in confirming that I was selecting the correct size, and the rep also recommended a new finial and included the size I would need for the new lampshade. When the shade was in stock again, I immediately ordered it and it was delivered within 2 days. It was easy to install and it looks great; and most importantly, it provides a lot of light to flow through for my mother who has diminished vision and relies on as much light as possible. . .thank you, Lamps USA!!!
Almost destroyed. But the shade is fine,
compliment our old Rembrandt lamps very well
