It doesn't matter if the shade is made of rawhide or not, there are a few tips you should know to correctly measure and order a shade and also terminology that will help you insure that the person receiving your order is on the same track. We create custom rawhide lamp shades for rustic western lamps and southwest home decorating. Because we encounter this issue all the time we have some tips that we use to insure the correct look for a lamp, even without seeing the lamp ourselves.
Lamp shades are decorative covers for lamps. They are used to diffuse and direct light coming from a lamp or light bulb. Shades can be conical, cylindrical, or take on other forms. They can fit floor, desk, or table top lamp models. Suspended lamp models are also very popular. Some lamps come with their own shades; others can be fitted with shades that can be bought at home décor stores. Shades can also be custom-tailored to fit lamps of all sizes.
The next lighting is what is known as task lighting. This is where lamp shade really come into functional and design value. These are your lamps that sit on end tables, night stands and hutches. Designed to provide directed light toward a specific area. These are the reading lamps and the lights you use when the overhead light is just too much.
Fabric lamp shades can be used for different types of lamps. They can be used for lamps on tables, ceiling or floor too. Some of the popular fabric shades include classic pleated soft cream shades, silk shades, quilt shades, bedding shades, octagonal fabric shades and burgundy pattern fabric shades. It is easy to get confused with the wide variety of fabric shades available in the market. So the best way to decide the perfect shade is to know the lamp.
An bulb clip adapter can be added to any standard shade to allow it to be placed over the bulb. Chandelier lamp shades usually have built-in bulb clips made for the small flame or candelabra shaped bulbs. Shades used as hanging lamps may use an uno mount which has a center ring large enough for the bulb socket to pass through. These also appear on some table lamps. You can use a bulb clip on a replacement shade instead of an uno mount.
