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 rectangle or square lamp shade appears to look like a rectangle when seen from above or below. Often the shade is wider than it is front-to-back. It features usually straight vertical flat sides and right-angled corners. It produces a modern geometric look which is ideal for a modern lamp base or one 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.
It is pretty. It fits my lamp nicely. I think a little expensive for quality.
I had two lamps made for me by a well known potter so I wanted quality shades. When I chanced upon LampsUSA, I found the quality I wanted in the size I needed. Than you LampsUSA!!
These lampshads are bright white and very good quality. Replacing the shades made my lamps look modern and brand new. Highly recommend these shades. They arrived quickly and packaged very well.
