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.

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 am very particular about lighting, lamps and shades. This design was well woth the money.
I am so pleased with my lamp shade
The lamp shades were beautiful and great quality. They were exactly as described. I would definitely order from this company again.
This lampshade with its inverted corners makes our lamp look great. It's well made and much better than the shade that came with the lamp
Love this lamp shade. Purchased to replace a shade on my mother’s antique lamp. Beautiful!
Fast, efficient service as well.
I replaced my white shades with these black shades with gold liner.
Fast shipping. The gold bleeds into the black shade when the light is on giving the room a strange glow. It's okay but not ideal.
Shade gave instant charm and class to my living room. I used them for the sconces on either side of the fireplace. I love the gold foil and how it gives off a gorgeous soft glow come nighttime, making the whole place feel cozy and warm. And even when it's not lit, it still looks pretty peeping out from under the shade. I love these. Definitely a stylish but cheap way to change your light fixture.
I ordered two of these lampshades to replace two that I let go in my last move. They are great with my new furniture and on top of the lamps I purchased them for. The only drawback is that shipping takes too long. But seeing how great they look with their excellent materials and craftsmanship, they are worth the wait and the added shipping cost.
