A standard shade mount has a center bar across the top with a hole for the harp mount or a washer centered by three supports that attach to the top rim of the shade. Both allow the shade to be secured to the harp. Some smaller lamps and chandeliers don't use a harp but instead use a bulb clip to attach directly to the bulb. A bulb clip is simply two wire loops that are attached to the shade's center bar and grip the bulb.
If you love western lamps, design and décor try using Mission Del Rey's dark western rawhide lamp shades. Made with natural dark goat skin rawhide, western lamp shades have the look you want. These lamp shades have a rich variety of color tones in a very rustic appearance that varies in tone on the rawhide. Lamp shades full of character, western rawhide shades are less consistent in color so you see the natural light and dark coloring come through. Western rawhide yields a dark smoked look that is very unique and allows light to pass through. Laced with matching dark rawhide stitching, they have a warm golden brown glow. When a room has a lot of dark leather furniture or dark wood, the dark western rawhide lampshades will pull the room together to complete the perfect space.
A round fabric lamp shade is best suited for round lamps. If the base of the lamp is square, you can choose a square lamp shade that best compliments the looks. There is no hard and fast rule and creative ideas are always an add-on.
Rawhide lamp shades can be used as replacement lamp shades on your existing lamps or as the perfect accessory to your new rustic lamps. Each rawhide lamp shade is handmade and the shade of choice for southwestern table lamps, vintage or antique lamps or western floor lamps. Old world craftsmanship and the natural material characteristics of rawhide allow rustic lamps to create perfect ambiance. If you want rustic lamps that hang from the ceiling such as antler chandeliers, rawhide chandelier lamp shades allow light to filter through the rawhide. Mini lamp shades or clip on lamp shades have a built-in bulb clip at the top of the shade which allows the lampshade to rest directly on the bulb to give your rustic lamps a custom look. Rustic lamp shades made of rawhide work with cowboy, Native American Indian lamps, log homes, cabins and cottages as well as any ranch, lodge or country décor and are the staple of western and southwest decor. You can find a full assortment of sizes and colors at Mission Del Rey where stock or custom rawhide shades are available in 16 sizes and 5 colors. You will love the glow of rawhide lamp shades.
It is also recommended to take into consideration the surroundings before choosing lamp shades. Burgundy pattern fabric shades are best suited for interiors with somewhat dull colors. This highlights the lamp and heightens the effervescent glow effect. Getting the right lamp shade can add personality to the room. Before you select one, decide on the type of ambiance and look that you want for the room.
