Lamp Shade


How to measure for a lampshade:

  1. Select a coordinated base and shade that share similar silhouettes (i.e. round bases work best with round shades).
  2. Measure height of the lamp base and diameter of the shade. The shade’s diameter should be less than the height of the base.

For drama, use contrasting silhouettes or an oversized shade. (zulily.com-starts 9/21)
