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.
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.
We had to get a replacement as it cracked when it was hit by accident with a broom, great service but a bit pricy for one part
This did just as I expected it to and hid the raw lights but allowed plenty of light thru to light the room. Very pleasing look.
Although this 15" round diffuser is made for the top of a typical floor lamp with a shade, we used it for the overhead ceiling lamp in our kitchen. Our kitchen lamp was the older style that took 2 circular fluorescent bulbs. We replaced the bulbs with a LED kit that had LED's on a circular plate that replaced the bulbs. The glare from the bare LED's was pretty strong. This 15" round diffuser fit perfectly over the center post on the lamp and made the glaring LED's much more soft and very similar to the original florescent circle lamps. Looks great, works great and saves electricity!!
