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.
The lampshades arrived with box open at various places, but the shades were not damaged. However, the vertical ribbing on one of the shades is not completely glued down. I will get some fabric glue and fix it. I suggest better packaging as the box appeared to be a used box but not enough tape was used.
Was looking all over for Stiffel lamp replacement shade. 100$ plus in shade stores around Fairfield county Ct. Found web site with picture of same 40 year old Stiffel lamp and replacement shade for under 60$ that fits perfectly. Problem solved.
Great lamp shade! Good quality, fast shipping, great product for a fair price. The eggshell color is very pretty, more of a beige. This was a very positive on-line purchasing experience
I ordered two lamp shades. They are perfect. They fit perfectly. Love them, love them...
One of the vertical side wires was bent about 1" to the side in the vertical center of the shade. I was able to straighten it so I don't have to deal with the hassle of returning it. Other than that the shade looks good.
Shades look great. Service even better!
The description of the shade matched what we received and looks perfect on our wallpaper roller lamp. There were some issues with the first shade that was shipped and it was immediately and cheerfully corrected.
After having the same lamp shade of over 40 years this one makes the lamp look brand new. It is very pretty. I love it!
Very pretty simple, elegant shade that has revived my long-forgotten Stiffel lamp base.
