Table Lamp Shades

When choosing lampshades, keep in mind the three S's – Shape, Size, and Surface. In selecting table lamp shades, it is essential to keep the shade proportional to the size and shape of the base. So, it has to fit the place and its purpose, complement without overwhelming, and draw just enough attention to be a focal point of the room. It means that table lampshades sometimes must be understated and straightforward to create a clean aesthetic or emphasize different accessories. Other times it will mean making a bold statement where the shade becomes the main center of attention in the room.

Table Lamp Shades

One rule holds when selecting table lamp shades, remember that the shape of the shade should reflect the shape of your lamp base. If the base is straight, go with a shade that incorporates straight edges; choose a square or rectangular-shaped shade. If your lamp base is round or tapered, decide on a sloping shade, oval shade, or straight round shade such as an Empire, French Drum will best suit it. Table lamps that are based on elaborate designs should have simple shades. In contrast, a simple base deserves something more interesting up top.  

Various types of shades shed light in different ways; bell shades cast light between the top and the bottom part of the shade. There are small table lamp shades in bell shape which can give a unique look in your room. Empire shades illuminate mainly from the bottom. The drum shades provide a medium amount of light from both ends. Always try to match the lamp with the design concept of the room where it will be placed. For example, bell shades fit the base with a traditional design. On the other hand, table lamps with drum shades will be more suitable in modern interiors. Keep in mind that the table lampshade should be at eye level when you are seated.

Remember that the width of the lampshade should be at least equal to the height of the lamp base. In addition, the height of the lampshade should be 40% to 60% of the height of your lamp base. Lastly, the lampshade should be wider than the widest part of the lamp base, up to 2x the width.  

Choose a soft-backed shade with a flexible lining such as linen or paper shades for more ambient lighting since these diffuse more light. Remember that white shades give out more light and can illuminate an entire room. In contrast, darker shades focus the light on a certain area and make a more dramatic statement. When it comes to fabric, shades made out of silk are more formal than linen, textured materials, or parchment shades. Likewise, glass lamp shades for table lamps reflect a more formal décor as well as porcelain lamps. 

Glass Lamp Shades for Table Lamps

Glass is the perfect material for light shades as it allows light to pass through, which illuminates bright and vibrant light. A beautifully colored and shaped glass lamp shade placed on a table features quality, taste, and class. Glass lampshades are a versatile option for home lighting. They can be a beautiful addition to your home décor because of their timeless, attractive, and elegant appearance. There are even glass shades that are finished with different textures, patterns, and decorations.  This cannot be compared to cheap lamp shades for table lamps.

Traditional glass lamp shades have a classic look that is perfect for creating a vintage-inspired interior design concept. On the other hand, globe light shades have a more sixties look and stylish interior. There is a retro twist, especially when incorporated with chrome bases and fittings to bring them up to date. Modern design still uses glass lamp shades for table lamps due to its versatile medium that can be printed and colored for a wide range of decorative options.

If you have glass lampshades with a traditional tulip shape and a rippled edge, pair this with traditional wood or antique brass lamp bases to create a timeless look that adds character and aesthetic appeal to the room.
