Buying Guide

Half lamp shades are a popular solution for wall lamps since they help you maintain a fairly flat look and save space.

However, you can also use half lamp shades with traditional table lamps. They’re a particularly handy choice if you’re looking for a solution that will help you make the most of a narrow table or nightstand.

At the moment, some trending styles of half lamp shades are design-led pieces featuring contemporary and unusual shapes, vibrant colors, and geometric shades.

However, unless you’re happy to change your décor almost every year, we recommend choosing half lamp shades that match your specific interiors rather than sticking to a trend that might not work well with the rest of your furniture.

Half lamp shades tend to give off the most light, because their unique shape allows light to bounce off the back as well as surrounding walls—instead of directing most of the light downward as a normal, full lamp shade might.

If you’re wondering what color to purchase, know that white shades tend to light full rooms best, while darker shades are usually best for making a dramatic statement with your lighting.
