Choosing a vintage lamp shade


Finding a vintage lampshade to fit your floor lamp or table lamp can be like trying to organize a seating plan at a big party. The perfect combination means that everyone has a wonderful time. But one wrong move, and you’re faced with a sticky situation.

With the right lighting, a space can be manipulated to appear sophisticated, eccentric or anything in between.

Even the most gorgeous vintage furniture can end up looking dull and drab with poor lighting. But there are ways to ensure you choose the perfect vintage lamp shade for your lamp.

First, understand that size matters when it comes to choosing a vintage lamp shade. Remember, the lamp shade should be three-fourths the size of the lamp base. And, your lamp shade’s circumference must be an inch wider than the lamp’s broadest point.

Many professional decorators also agree that the lamp shade should mimic the form of the lamp. So, a square shade should fit a square lamp. A circular shade should fit a circular lamp, and so on.

If you want to take it even further, some designers believe that the lamp shade, lamp, and the table it’s set on should all take a similar shape. How’s that for cohesive?

But remember, it all boils down to what suits you and your style. There’s no wrong way to decorate your home. If a bold choice is shouting out at you, don’t be afraid to make it.
