Shades by Fitter

A new harp to match the fitter on your lamp shade can mean the difference between not-quite-right and just-so. With several sizes and finishes to choose from, LampsUSA gives you the freedom to create the perfect look. Most fitters are "washer" or Spider fitters because the 3-4 spokes point to a center washer, much like a spider's web.  Most candelabra shades use a clip fitter to attach directly to the light bulb.  Want to just raise your shade by an inch or so? Try a shade riser.
