The job of a lampshade is to complement the lamp. Rounder lamps require rounded shapes, such as drum, oval, empire, coolie, and bell. For squarer bases, shades need to be more angular, such as square, rectangular, hexagon, and pagoda.
Now, let us look at how they attach to the base, this is important apart from learning the different types of lamp shades. The majority of regular conical shapes sit atop a vertical stand and attach with a wing nut or screw. Now, there are some shades are connected permanently, like the dishes on halogen torchieres. These consequently bounce light off the ceiling to brighten the whole room.
Antique Lamps can be found with various antique dealers and are sold in either 'restored' or 'as found' condition. The lamps are restored by polishing, burnishing or replacing some parts and not by interfering with their vintage value. Catalogs of the antique lamps in stores can be found online with the complete description and historical significance. Prices depend on the vintage value and rarity of the design and art- work on the lamp.
