Oriental Lamp Shades

One of the most elegant ways to enhance an Asian decorated living room is with attractive oriental lamp shades. You can’t just choose any old lampshade and expect it to fit with your oriental interior decorating style.

When searching for a beautiful oriental top for a lamp base, you should consider the following shapes: empire, bell, drum, hexagonal, European, or rectangular shapes. These shapes are most flattering in Japanese and Chinese designs.

Empire, hexagonal, European, and rectangular shapes bring forth masculine energy to a room. Bell and drum shapes are softer and more feminine.

Find the perfect Asian lamp shades in these ten stunning contenders. 

Animal Printed Asian Lamp Shade Designs

Animal Printed Asian Lamp Shade Designs

Animal printed oriental lamp shade designs bring Asian culture forward. Often the animals designed on these types are tigers, fish, peacocks, and other bird species.

If you are an animal lover at heart, combining a lovely peacock drum shade to your living room will show that passion. For more flow, choose a bell-shaped shade with a ferocious tiger print. 

Oriental Pagoda Lampshades with Pinched Corners

Oriental Pagoda Lampshades with Pinched Corners

Oriental pagoda lampshades are a tell-tale style to the Asian culture. With pinched corners, these lampshades resemble Asian tower rooftops. These types come in solid color or pattern, with tassels and fringe or clean-cut lines.

Find a large, tiered pagoda shade for a dramatic appeal. These types of shades are best displayed in commonly viewed rooms such as formals and living rooms.

Our advice Buying Guide

How to choose the right size for an oriental lamp shade?

For oriental lamp shades—and many other types of lamp shades—there is, fortunately, a specific formula that should guide your choice. The height of the shade you purchase should be three-quarters of the height of the base of your lamp, or as close as is possible. The width of your oriental lamp shade should be about the same as the height of the base of the lamp.

What types of oriental lampshades are there?

Just like regular lampshades, oriental lampshades are available in round, square, and angular shapes. You can choose between a hexagonal, drum, bell, European, empire, or rectangular lampshade, depending on your lamp’s base and your home’s style.

Whether you go for a simple shape or an angular one, oriental lampshades will always make an eye-catching statement with their intricate patterns and elegant forms.

What styles do oriental lamp shades go with?

Oriental lamp shades tend to be a little busier, and often exhibit striking silhouettes and interesting design.

We’d advise against pairing them with very busy or design-heavy bases, just to ensure that the lamp shade has room to shine (literally!). As far as overall styles, these shades would work well with a vintage or antique aesthetic, or with maximalist design.
