Buying Guide

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.

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.

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.
