There are two main types of shade construction that enable them to come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There’s either a hard-back lining or a metal framework with cloth draped over it. A `hard-backed` shade is typically lined with plastic or other hard materials that designed to prevent unlimited light from passing through the sides of the shade. The hard lining allows the shape of the shade to be firm and less likely to change over time. The firm backing is not visible from the outside of the shade, as there’s typically some sort of cloth or decorative paper enhancement on the outside.
The empire strikes as a versatile shade shape. It looks good in any color, works well in transitional, modern, contemporary, and eclectic spaces. Even out of place, the empire shade shape can look stunning.
Navy blue with a touch of gray brings you a textured material by the name of Textured Slate. The texture is brought to life when the light is turned on, and the matte navy-blue lamp shade color looks just as stunning with no light on. As the perfect complement to white, off-white, or gray lamp bases, the textured slate material serves as a stunning accent piece whenever it is used. If a pop of navy is needed, or if blue is the color of choice, look no further.
