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 bell-shaped lampshade has a fluted design and curved sides, similar to the shape of a bell. The gentle curves can be aesthetically pleasing. The wider bottom helps more light to spread out downwards and sideways, such as for reading or nearby activities. The smaller top helps to funnel bulb heat away from the lamp. Bell shades coordinate well with a lamp base featuring a curved surface or profile.
Classic in nature, yet elegant by design best describes the timeless appeal of predictable yet dignified lines and curves. Traditional Style Lighting prides itself on stately structure, beautiful ornate details, and reliable designs that tell a story of enduring appeal and craftsmanship. It’s a tried-and-true style that is reliable, and speaks of discriminating and taste of a steadfast lifestyle.
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 have an older floor lamp (actually wedding gift- 58 years ago) I needed a new shade was so happy to find it at your company.
It was just what I needed. Actually received it within 6 days. Thanks for your prompt service. Would recommend anyone to
check out your company.
I really like the looks of this shade. It replaces a drum-style shade, and fits the lamp beautifully!
I was so excited to order, then receive, this lampshade. I’ve been lugging this antique family floor lamp around for decades, and began to despair that I’d ever find an affordable shade replacement. Thank goodness I stumbled upon LampsUSA, and spoke to a wonderful customer service rep who was so helpful. I am thrilled with the shade, and finally able to use the lamp!!
Purchased this for my c.1940 vintage floor lamp and it looks great. Top of shade sits nicely on the 10" diameter milk glass diffuser and the bottom of the shade ends right where it should for the three candelabra arms on my floor lamp. I dressed up the shade with some 1 1/2" silver lace around the top with a hot glue gun for some extra vintage appeal. Very pleased.
Great product at a good price. Replaced an old shade perfectly.
This fit great - exactly as described. Good price and fast shipping too!
Combined dimmable LED bulbs with this egg shell shade to bring back my vintage floor lamp. Perfect
This is a very beautiful and quality lampshade. It fit perfectly on my vintage floor lamp. The shade arrived quickly and was well packaged.
Love the shade I ordered for my vintage floor lamp. Was delivered promptly and looks great!
