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 drum lamp shade resembles a barrel or drum shape. The sides of the shade are completely vertical, or near to. They go straight up and down, which means the top and bottom of the drum lampshade are usually about the same size. This produces a somewhat more modern look, and equal amounts of light may emit out the top and bottom of the shade. Due to its cylinder shape, the shade easily allows bulb heat to escape. A cylindrical drum shade coordinates well with modern lamp bases or a base with a clean 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.
The lampshades updated our living room and the cream color made the room look brighter both with the switch on or off!
Perfect color and size, thank you!
A BEAUTIFUL "REAL" LAMPSHADE, NOT SOME 'CARDBOARD' LOOK-A-LIKE. WE ADDED AN INCH TO THE SLANT HEIGHT AND IT'S PERFECT. I HAVE ALREADY PASSED YOUR WEB SITE ON TO FRIENDS. JUST A WONDERFUL PRODUCT!
I love my new lampshade. Fits perfectly on the lamp.
These shades are fantastic….perfect size and color. They make the room shine!!
I was updating two very old lamps and didn't want to spend a lot of money.
The silk lampshade arrived soon after ordering in excellent condition, is well constructed and was a perfect replacement to my 50 year old lampshade. Customer service was very helpful in giving correct measurements prior to ordering, and color info. I would buy again from Lamps USA. Thank you.
I am so very pleased with these lampshades. I have two crystal lamps that my mother bought for me more than 30 years ago and they were in desperate need of new lampshades. These lampshades are worth every penny I spent on them, they brought my lamps up to date, yet kept their traditional charm intact. The color is a little darker than I thought they would be but they are very warm and welcoming. They arrived quickly and packaged very well. I highly recommend the shades and LampsUsa, thank you!
Love it. It is exactly as the picture and my lamps look great. Bought 2 shades and repaired 2 lamps.
I have a beautiful lamp, the shade for which was damaged. We recently moved, and I tossed the original shade with two holes. I regretted my decision because the shade was over 70 years old, and irreplaceable with its sturdy and beautiful spun gold surface. However, the shade I purchased from LampsUSA looks great, especially with the tassel I also bought, which adds elegance. I won’t be missing the old one so much now!
I was very happy with this lamp shade. I have a lamp that was my mothers and it needed a new shade. I was happy with the selection as well as the delivery time. Looks great and is a good reminder of my mom.
