Before we go to some design principles let's talk about the 3 main types of illumination.
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.
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.
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 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.
