Lighting shades for versatile interior designs

Whether getting festive for an upcoming holiday, adding new décor or just refreshing the contents of a room, homeowners are almost always looking to make subtle updates to their humble abodes.

One small addition that can be made to an interior is changing shades on light fixtures. And this option isn’t just for portable lamps – many varieties of stationary lighting fixtures have replaceable shades, as well.

Shades for pendants, chandeliers and wall sconces are available in a number of options:

  • Round or oval shapes
  • Silk, linen or paper material
  • Colors, patterns and textures to match any home decor

One large shade can cover the entire width of a fixture for a dramatic statement.

Progress Lighting’s Nisse chandelier features an oval drum shade with off-white silken fabric.

Or, smaller shades add a subtle treatment to individual lights and disguise not-so-elegant lamps, such as spiral CFLs.

Roxbury fixtures have optional round drum shades in a variety of colors.

The beauty of today’s lighting options is that homeowners have the freedom to personalize designs without replacing fixtures. Drum shades add versatility and décor options to any room for years of enjoyment.
