TO ADD CHARACTER!
Many lamps arrive from the store with a white shade, with the idea of being neutral. THROW IT OUT! You might as well leave a bare bulb. A true neutral shade is off-white. A classic shade’s proportion gently tapers with the height slighter greater than the diameter of the top. It should just cover the metal top of the base.
|Silk shade on a theme base|
Paper: stiff, clean lines, comes in opaque, colored, and translucent finishes
Linen, Silk, Cotton: usually comes with an off-white lining, can be plain, pleated, shirred
Colored: adds a dramatic accent
HINT: When using several table lamps in a single room, whether they are on the same or different table heights, the lamps should appear to be visually the same height within an inch or two.
