Home Concept offers the finest quality materials in their lamp shades. Dance fabric, metal and brass hardware/framing, and detailed craftsmanship give consumers more bang for their buck. With a lamp shade that measure 15 inches tall, it's essential to have that sort of construction.
A mid-century mainstay, drum shades are iconic throw backs to the 1960s, but they are just as relevant as ever. Both transitional and contemporary look books are chocked full of drum shades. Their lack of complexity is both simple and stunning. Drum shades can be made to work on any round lamp base. In almost all cases, this type of shade is wider than it is tall.
A taller version of drum shades, cylinder shades are tall columns of light perfect for making a statement. Shades like this typically work well with a tall slender lamp base - both table lamps and floor lamps. Cylinder lamp shades are taller than they are wide, typically by a big enough margin to demonstrate a distinctly tall shade shape.
Navy blue with a touch of gray brings you a textured material by the name of Textured Slate. The texture is brought to life when the light is turned on, and the matte navy-blue lamp shade color looks just as stunning with no light on. As the perfect complement to white, off-white, or gray lamp bases, the textured slate material serves as a stunning accent piece whenever it is used. If a pop of navy is needed, or if blue is the color of choice, look no further.
There are two main types of shade construction that enable them to come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There’s either a hard-back lining or a metal framework with cloth draped over it.
A `hard-backed` shade is typically lined with plastic or other hard materials that designed to prevent unlimited light from passing through the sides of the shade. The hard lining allows the shape of the shade to be firm and less likely to change over time. The firm backing is not visible from the outside of the shade, as there’s typically some sort of cloth or decorative paper enhancement on the outside.
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.
This isn't a cheaply constructed shade that you might find at your local big box or discount store. It's really nice workmanship and made to last. The shade is dark, so it gives a soft subtle glow. If you're looking for bright light, it's not the shade. I paired it with a tall vintage brass table lamp and it gives the lamp a modern touch. The color is closer to the picture below with the bulb lit. Love it.
