The lampshade for 90 % of the lamps that you buy in the world today. I recently had yet another lampshade break and I wanted to put a replacement on and took the base to a store and the guy said can't can't help you that's you know European or IKEA style lamp base, and you, we don't sell lampshades for that and, to be honest, you're not going to find anyone that does so.
I went to three other lamp stores and everybody said the same thing, and my understanding at this point is that lamps that you purchase at IKEA, though not only IKEA, IKEA Target, have this system of securing the shade on it. That does not have a harp. That's screwed on at the top, which is traditional, lampshade part, and if you walk into a lamp store, that's what they sell, and here it is. There are two options that will come up. One is that you already have a threaded lamp base. It just is not the right size, as you see here, the IKEA lampshade, as well as all of the adapters that come with the IKEA lampshade, don't fit it all on this space.
So that's pretty useless, but if you go out and buy a washer that is 1 and 3/8 inch diameter on the inside and a 3-inch diameter on the outside at your local hardware store for 69 cents. You can pop that guy in there and then put your lampshade on and screw it down tightly and it works like a charm. If you have a lampshade base, that's not doesn't have a threaded collar on it.
