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 bell-shaped lampshade has a fluted design and curved sides, similar to the shape of a bell. The gentle curves can be aesthetically pleasing. The wider bottom helps more light to spread out downwards and sideways, such as for reading or nearby activities. The smaller top helps to funnel bulb heat away from the lamp. Bell shades coordinate well with a lamp base featuring a curved surface or profile.
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.
These are a modern twist (no pun intended) on a pleated shade, they looks very nice in our home. The shades were packed very well and they arrived quickly.
The new lamp shade arrived in perfect condition. It is quite beautiful and looks great on my standing lamp!
This is a beautiful lampshade, the material swirls are lovely when the lamp is on. Good quality.
Love it and it shipped quickly!
What a difference these lamp shades make to my matching lamps! The great quality of these shades reflects the light giving a warm glow. Even my husband who usually doesn't notice was impressed.
Much nicer in person than viewed on line. Could not be more pleased with shade and seller.
Bought a cool new lamp, but it came with a really cheap lampshade. After searching extensively, I selected this shade and am very pleased with it. It's a classic shape and the diagonal pleats make it extra-interesting without going over-the-top, so the lamp compliments the room perfectly. Love it!
I have been searching for years trying to find this lamp shade. The one I replaced was 10 years old and needed to go. I have tried other styles on the lamp but was never satisfied. So glad I found your website.
