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.
This chandelier lamp shade is quite small and designed for use on a chandelier light fixture. The small shade is just large enough to accomodate a light bulb, while still shielding your eyes from glare. Usually you'll need a set of chandelier lampshades to refurbish the whole chandelier. These mini-lamp shades are relatively inexpensive and very easy to install, usually by clipping directly onto the light bulb.
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 over a light bulb connected to a chandelier. The shade simply attaches to a single light bulb unit. You will need several shades for a whole chandelier.
I have bought 4 different shades to try out and at this point and these ones win for me because their proportions are the best at a lower price range. They look very classic and nice.
The only hard thing is that they really dim and yellow the light from the bulbs. This is hard for me at night but all the others I've tried are either too small, too big, the wrong color linen, wrong shape...
If you want something timeless and warm these are perfect. If you need more light look elsewhere.

I liked almost everything about these shades. The color, fabric, size. Nice quality. Because they are described as lined in white fabric, I mistakenly thought that these were soft-backed shades. In fact, the fabric lining is attached to a hard-back. This wasn't going to work for me because I wanted more light through than can be gotten with a hard-back shade. Unfortunately, I had to return the shades. I suggested that the manufacturer should clarify this point in the description because it could be misleading.
These shades were the right combination of simplicity and elegance for my traditional chandelier.
