Lamp and Lighting Shades
Almost all lights inside homes and offices have lamp shades to cover light bulbs. Although a lamp shade is usually seen as a decorative element, its main purpose is to diffuse or redirect the light from the bulb for maximum effectiveness and protect your eyes from the bulb's glare.
Conical, cylindrical and other forms on floor, desk or table top-mounted as well as suspended lamp models are the most common and are made in a wide range of materials. It's easy to give an old lamp a brand new look with a unique lamp shade. Plus, new lamp shades brighten any room.

Lamp shades are coverings that are used in lighting fixtures to direct and diffuse light. They are typically made of materials such as glass, fabric, or paper and are designed to fit over the lamp socket and bulb to provide a decorative and functional aspect to a lighting fixture. Lamp shades come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, and can be designed to complement the style and decor of a room. They can also help to control the amount and quality of light that is emitted by a lamp, by directing the light upward, downward, or in a specific direction. Lamp shades play a crucial role in determining the overall look and feel of a lighting fixture, and are an important component in achieving the desired lighting effect in a given space.
