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.
This lamp shade exceeded my expectation, just lovely and better than pictured
I ordered 2 large and one small. They are perfect! Thank You!
These lampshades (I got two) are the perfect complement to my antique alabaster lamps. They appear well-made, with good materials, stitching, and finish. Thanks to your guides, they are the right size. They make me wish I had changed out the old shades sooner.
I ordered the 12 x 10 Eggshell Shantung Bell Lamp Shade, and it's a beautiful lamp shade. Web site is set up well and delivery was prompt as advertised. The price was comparable to "box" stores but much better selection. I will buy from Lamps USA again. Thank you.
Really like our new classic looking lamp shades. Even ordered more of them! Ordering was so easy. Delivery was quick. Received lamp shades within a few days of ordering.
I downsized an old threadbare shade to freshen my alabaster lamp. I should have done this long ago. Thanks LampUSA! The website was clear and ordering was easy.
Classic, traditional lampshade of very good quality materials. Super happy with them. I ordered 7 of them for a shared-family home in Sonoma County. They look great.
These lampshades are beautifully made and easily hold their own on the gorgeous antique marble bases I paired them with. The effect is enchanting. Shades of this caliber and size are kind of rare, and I am delighted to have found them. You are awesome all around, between an easy-peasy website and brilliantly fast delivery (seriously, I think they showed up the next day) in addition to the products you offer. Thank you!
Nice quality. Efficient delivery.
Very impressed with our new shade! It looks great and got here in just a few days. Well worth the price and will buy again when needed.
