Lamp Shade Types

There are two main types of shades:

1. Softback Shade
This shade has a metal frame lined with fabric interior and covered with an endless variety of fabrics on its exterior. Silk, Shantung, Linen, Muslin, and even Burlap are a few of the fabrics that can be used. Softback shades come in a multitude of shapes, sizes, and colors.
2. Hardback Shade
This shade has a top ring and a bottom ring with a hard backing that give the shade its form. They are typically more simple shapes, usually round or square shapes. Though the shapes are simple, these shades also come in a wide variety of fabrics, sizes, and colors.

Please remember:

Bring in your lamp when looking for a lamp shade!

Contrary to most assumptions, you can change the style of shade on any lamp and update its look. It is important to bring your lamp with you so proper fitting can be assured.
