16"W x 12"H Empire Hardback Lamp Shade Textured Slate

16"W x 12"H Empire Hardback Lamp Shade Textured Slate

Home Concept Signature Lamp Shades feature the finest premium Linen fabric. Durable Upholstery-Quality fabric means your new lampshade will last for decades. It wont get brittle from smoke or sunlight like less expensive fabrics. Heavy brass and steel frames means your shades can withstand abuse from kids and pets. These lamp shades offer a real difference one can feel.

Hardback shade construction 

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.

Empire shade shape

The empire strikes as a versatile shade shape. It looks good in any color, works well in transitional, modern, contemporary, and eclectic spaces. Even out of place, the empire shade shape can look stunning.  

Textured Slate

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.

What is a Lamp Shade?


lamp shade 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.

Lamp Shade Benefits


  • Directs light upward and downward.
  • Diffuses light through the sides.
  • Directs heat to escape safely.
  • Adds a decorative touch to the room.
  • Breathes new life into an old lamp.
  • Refreshes the look of your lamp.
  • Shields your eyes from bulb glare.
  • Help direct light for tasks and reading.
  • Coordinate with your room decor.

An Empire-Shaped Shade


An empire lamp-shade is a traditional lampshade shape where the bottom is wider than the top. It also features straight sides, forming a kind of triangular shape. The bottom of the shade spreads out more to distribute light, and to shine outward and downward for nearby tasks. The smaller opening at the top helps to funnel bulb heat away from the lamp. An empire lampshade coordinates well with a lamp base featuring straighter or simpler lines, but also works well with almost any lamp shape.

Casual Style


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.

Mounts to a Lamp


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.

Additional Information

A Spider Fitter

This shade includes a Spider Fitter

The top of this shade is fitted with a `Spider` fitter, designed to fit on top of a harp. The spider is aptly named with multiple arms which extend out from a central ring to the edges of the top of the shade. The ring sits around the screw thread at the top of the harp, fastened by a screwed-on finial.

The shade does not come with a harp - typically the harp, a two-pronged loop of metal which comes up around the light bulb and joins at the top, is a part of your lamp base. If you need a new harp to go with your shade, see our selection of shade harps.

If your old harp is damaged or missing, or is not the correct height, you may need a new harp so that your new shade will be positioned correctly. Shades with a spider fitter typically have a `drop` of 1/2" to 1" where the spider arms recess downward into the shade to hide the top of the harp. Unless you a replacing an existing shade with a shade the same size you may need a different-sized harp.

You may want to measure from the top edge of the shade down to the center of the fitter. This makes the fitting less visible when viewing the lamp from the side but does raise the position of the shade by the drop distance. Also keep in mind you may prefer not to see any of the socket or bulb when viewing from the side.

See our Lamp Shade Buyer's Guide for more information.
How to measure a lamp shade

Measuring an Empire-Shaped Lamp Shade

Empire shades are typically measured with three dimensions:
  • Top: The diameter of the circle at the top of the shade - measure straight across.
  • Bottom: The diameter of the circle at the bottom of the shade - measure straight across.
  • Slant Height: The diagonal height/length measured in a straight line from the top edge of the shade to the bottom edge. Empire shades feature straight sides, sloped at an angle, so measure flat against the side.
When comparing this shade to the size of an existing shade, make sure to measure using the above rules.

For more information, see our Lamp Shade Buyer's Guide
