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.
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.
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.
Lamp shade specifics:
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.
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.
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.
