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.
Classic in nature, yet elegant by design best describes the timeless appeal of predictable yet dignified lines and curves. Traditional Style Lighting prides itself on stately structure, beautiful ornate details, and reliable designs that tell a story of enduring appeal and craftsmanship. It’s a tried-and-true style that is reliable, and speaks of discriminating and taste of a steadfast lifestyle.
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.
My wife Judy and I love the Box Pleat Egg Shell Lamp Shades we ordered. Just Lovely!!! We have bought numerous times from Lamps USA. We highly recommend Lamps USA. We give a five star rating to them.
My new shade is just what I wanted for my ginger-jar style lamp. Sleek lines that do not take away from the overall look of the lamp, with a warm cream color. Very pleased! M
The shades purchased, arrived really quickly...they were well packaged, and they ae excellent replacements.
loved the shades. this was my 3rd order for the same shades not through you) so finally got what I needed. thanks! dd
Love my new PERFECT lamp shade! No fuss, no muss. It was a difficult shade to replace because it was a tall and wide Stiffel floor lamp.
It is hard to believe what a huge and lovely difference these lampshades have made to the lighting in my living room!
with these shades everything in the room - even my mother-in-law - looks better! thank you so much !!
I shopped high and low locally and online for an exact sized shade x 2. Finally found LampsUSA and hoped and prayed things would work out ~ 💯 satisfied with our stylish, matching, well made lampshades. Thank you.
These lamp shades are nicer than I expected. They were an update for two antique lamps and they look absolutely perfect. Excellent quality. Would recommend.
Arrived in perfect condition. I will enjoy them for years to come on my 1970’s Stiffle lamps. Just beautiful.
Beautiful shades. Christmas gift for my mother. She loved them!
