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.

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.
I am very satisfied with the product I chose.
The lampshades are very nice quality. The eggshell color is a soft cream and with the light on it is a warm cream color; very nice and exactly what I wanted. I was concerned the eggshell was going to have a yellow tint, but it doesn't. The shades were packaged very well so there was no damage to the shades. I recommend these shades and would buy them again.
the size and color is perfect, some imperfections...corners not completely tight...had to move lampshades around to try to mask imperfections,
I had a lot of trouble finding shades this color and style in a size that worked for my bases, other than going with custom. They look and feel nicer than average box store shades. Would be 5 stars, but they arrived a little imperfect, with little imperfections. Nothing crazy noticeable, especially since I can just turn those bits toward the wall.
This is definitely a “second.” From some angles, this looks like a trapezoid shape.
Excellent, just as described, shipped promptly, packaged well.
I have been searching for a taller-than-wider lamp shade for an accent lamp, and this item works perfectly. It is just beautiful and elegant. Well packed, quickly shipped, solid construction, excellent materials highly recommended!
I am very pleased with this purchase. The size was almost exactly the same as the original. The quality is excellent and the price was reasonable. Also, they were delivered in a very short period of time. The only slight negative was that we had to take Egg Shell and my wife would have preferred White.
