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 love the fabric and design of the shade. The interior lining is in gold and makes the light reflection somewhat dark, not a good reading light, however, it does provide a soft light in the room. I priced this exact lamp shade at local lamp stores and they were twice the price.
Ive searched everywhere for black shades and finally found these at about half the price of others. They arrived quickly in perfect shade. It was easy to slip on the bulb, and completely changed the look of my dated chandelier. Its harsh light is now updated with a golden glow from its inner gold foil. This product turned out much better than I expected.
A great purchase! The lampshade is a stunning black color, is nicely finished, and the fabric has a gorgeous high quality look. The price of this item is well below the price of comparable shades at several online and brick and mortar stores. I would definitely recommend this item.
