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.
Searched and searched for the right size and type of replacement lampshades for some existing lamps. Finally landed on this great website (very helpful in sorting out size/shape). The shades were packaged well and are of high quality. Very very pleased--they enhance the lamps in our family room and are exactly what I envisioned.
we ordered two lamp shades about tw0 weeks ago. The shades had to have certain sizes to fit our lamps. We received them about a week ago. They are beutiful and fit the lamps perfectly.
Worked perfectly and looks beautiful
