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.
Was very satisfied with the product!
Exactly what I wanted to match up with shades purchased for 2 table lamps. Perfect.
Everything was perfect, even the fit, and fast delivery.
My old Stiffel floor lamp made it through the move unscathed, but alas, the shade and support globe didn't. I spent a good deal of time searching locally for a match but to no avail. It appeared that no one offered a shade to match the size I required until I searched the LampsUSA web site. Not only did I find the correct size but it was in a color close to the original shade. I had a question about the support globe and a quick reply from their online confirmed the size would fit the shade and the stand. Unbelievably, the shade and globe arrived one day earlier than I was told. Good selection, a good price and excellent delivery makes for an all around pleasant experience.
Im glad that I was able to find this style of lamp shade online. They are somewhat rate in stores because they are for lamps of older styles. My wife and I are very happy with the quality of this lamp shade. It has an excellent price and is shipped quickly.
This lamp shade is used in our dining room and lights up my room really well. It features a sturdy construction and a quality wire frame. Our old shade was made of paper and covered in some coarse fabric, and it really needed replacing. We are very happy with this shade, despite its higher than average price.
