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.
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.
Bought this shade and it was the perfect shape for my lamp. It is well made and looks nice. One disappointment though, one of the reviews said that the shade still looked white when the bulb was turned on, but mine are more yellow which I don't like. I think that the type of bulb might make a difference, and maybe if I get a daylight bulb it is better. We will see. That's my only issue.
OMG! Absolutely recommend this company! Great quality, shipping and price! My lampshade was not something I could pick up at a store...as I was misled by many websites. I have an antique floor lamp with a reflector globe. Your website made it so easy to shop for it. Truly pleased with my experience. Thank you!!!!!
It is perfect, I love it!!
Lamp shades look great & fit nicely!
Beautiful shade is the perfect way to top off my grandmother's very old floor lamp. Share arrived quickly and very securely packaged. Seller offers excellent products and is wonderful to work with.
Good quality. Soft and warm when lit.
I bought a $59.00 floor lamp at a large nationwide home and building products retailer that rhymes with Slowes. The lamp was just what I wanted: Brushed nickel with three clear, blown-glass balls that come up to the bottom of the shade. However, the white-linen-look drum shade backed in hard white plastic that was provided with the lamp glows yellow when I switch on the lightbulb. The yellowness of the original shade not only looks all wrong with the cool silver tone and clear glass of the lamp, it gives the impression the shade is backed with cheap plastic that will only get more yellow over time. I wanted to replace the original shade with an absolutely white shade. This shade is white even with the bulb turned on. It does have a hard plastic shell, but the exterior is covered in a white, finely-woven linen-like fabric, and the inside is covered with a white, silk-like fabric. The pure whiteness of the shade when the lamp is turned on makes the lamp look so much classier. I liked this shade so much I just ordered a second one for a table lamp. I'm replacing yet another bargain lampshade that also glows yellow, this one from a nationwide retailer of discounted home goods. Buy a bargain lamp, then replace it with a quality shade like this one!
