Lamp Shades

It is difficult to find a place locally, today, that stocks a satisfying variety of lamp shades, let alone lamp shades at all. Lamp shade shops have become a thing of the past. 

Everything it seems is online these days, and there too you will find lamp shades and globes, and even a chimney for that special antique lamp.

The links below will provide you with resources, some of the names of which will be familiar to you, and even some with a local outlet that might offer a small selection, possibly having just what you’re looking for.

If you have a shade-in-hand, then sizing is not necessarily an issue. But, if your project is for a new shade, and dimensions have not been determined, creating the desired look can be a bit of a challenge. A “lamp shade calculator” would really be helpful.

You can find “how to” sizing information on a couple of the following websites, along with well-written articles about all aspects of shade design. Among them you will even find a calculator. Check each of these websites for the wealth of information that they provide.
