Lampshade Size

If you are unsure of the shade size you require, please click through to our blog post for some helpful information about how to choose the right size shade.

Lampshade Types

Table and Floor Lamps

A table lampshade sits on a lamp base which is placed either on a table or sits on the floor if the base is tall. The light fitting sits at the bottom of the shade.

Ceiling Pendant

A pendant lampshade is where the shade hangs from a light fitting on the ceiling, usually above a dining table or kitchen bench. The light fitting sits at the top of the shade.

Lampshade Shapes

Drum Lampshades

Drum lampshades are the most popular as the shape is contemporary and suits many different decor styles. 

A drum shade is basically a cylinder that has the same diameter measurement across the top of the shade as the bottom.

Tapered / Empire Lampshades

Empire or “tapered shades” are more traditional. The diameter measurement of the top of the shade is smaller than the measurement at the bottom, creating a tapered effect.

We offer three different sized Empire shades.
