For the living room, choose a lamp shade made of fabric or slightly opaque paper to provide warm glow in the room. If to be placed near a television, an opaque shade can be chosen to reduce glare. For a modern look, drum shades may be used and if traditional look is preferred, conical shades are recommended. For reading purposes, the lamp's bulb must be at least 60 Watts; a dimmer or three0way bulb can be used for modulating the brightness.
Now, many of us are familiar with the basic type of lamp shade that stretches its material between the top and bottom cable circles of different diameters. This particular shape may be known as a drum, coolie, or empire, depending on the sizing ratio and the size of each element. Hardback shades have an exterior layer of fabric that is folded but nonetheless with an interior of plastic that will permit the light to filter through. However a more expensive one which is completely made of fabric is really a silk lamp.
The more ornate the lamp, the simpler the shade should be and vice versa. Pleated shades look more traditional while flat shades work with almost any decor. However, pleated shades are hard to keep dusted, so smooth shades are an optimum choice.
