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.

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.
This is a beautiful shade; a welcome surprise at a good price. The actual product is superior to the picture. Also, the delivery time was unusually quick. Both the shade and the shipping exceeded expectations.
I bought two identical lamp shades one for my floor lamp and the other one for my swag lamp. The shades look classy and expensive and they give my family
room a cozy, unified look. I am very pleased.
Well made diffuser shade. These are getting harder to find. This one has a unique style which gives off a soft golden glow. Really like it and would recommend. Better stitched than shown in photo.
Chose this shade because it matched the size and color of my old shade. I was unable to find this in retail stores (these stores are telling me they have consumed their stocks), so I'm guessing this style is in fashion at the moment. This is exactly the shade style I needed for my lamp. I'm very pleased with the quality of this product, as well as the seller. Shipping was fast.
