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.
The lampshade came promptly and in great condition. And it’s exactly what we needed. It adds to to Beaty of the lamp and softens but doesn’t obstruct the light.
My lampshade is perfect: perfect color and size and got here SO quickly! It replaced the original shade on a 60 year old lamp of my mother’s. I couldn’t be happier! And everyone who helped me was friendly and took care of my needs. I was so happy with my purchase, I had my husband buy a lamp from LampsUSA for my birthday!
Efficient outfit, got just what I was after, and it's great.
Very Happy with everything,would order from you again!!!!!!
I was surprised at the quality of the shade. Perfect.
Shades look nice they are just too small and it was hard to tell when ordering.
Excellent shade. Sturdy and beautiful at the same time! I've never bought a shade this expensive before, but it is well worth the price!
The lampshade is exactly what was described. I bought it a little too short but it looks better than the one I had on it. Quality and price align well.
My husband surprised me with this lamp shade. Ive been shopping online for a large lampshade to replace an old stained shade. I only seemed to find a few choices, so I stopped shopping. I was amazed that my husband picked this shade out all by himself. It is well made, stylish and light enough for a bright light. Plus, it has a good price. I plan on buying another one, but they are currently out of stock. I rate this product five stars!
These are simple shades for my lamps. I've looked at so many options and many were much more expensive. I'm pretty sure that at least some of the others are nicer. These are simple, but they look good and have changed up the mood of my chandelier. They are shipped quickly, arrived in good condition and are well made. A great value for the money.
