Lamp Shades for Table Lamps and More - Decorate with a Fresh New Look

Finding the Perfect Lamp Shade

Whether it's for a cozy reading nook or a grand entryway, a new lamp shade is a quick and easy way to redecorate and bring a fresh look into your home. Before finding you're new design however, you'll want to make sure it fits on your existing fixture. For that, you'll want to be aware of the three most common fitting types:

  • The clip-on fitter simply snaps right onto the light bulb itself. These tend to be used for the smaller shades commonly seen on chandeliers, ceiling lights and wall sconces.
  • The spider fitter is by far the most widely used on table lamps and floor lamps. For many of our designs, the correct size harp (the metal fixture upon which the lamp shade rests) is included free with your purchase.
  • The uno fitter is a simple style that attaches directly to the lamp socket. You'll sometimes find these fitters on small table lamps.
Once you've determined your fitter type, you may want to get a feel for the size shade you're looking for. As a general rule, you'll want to find a shade that adds a sense of balance and complements your lamp's form, size and style. To achieve this effortless look, your choice should be approximately the width of the lamp base at its widest point.
