Neutral Vertical Striped Drum Lamp Shade

Neutral Vertical Striped Drum Lamp Shade

This striped lampshade has a classic drum shape and a stylish vertical stripe pattern in three colors - gray, white, and navy, with a matching border. The compact 10” diameter and 8” height size fits most standard 1 ¼” diameter light bulb sockets.

Designer Advice:

Vertical striped lamp shades can easily create the illusion of height due to lines that run up and down. In addition, it can help a drum-shaped lamp shade appear taller to accent shorter lamp bases. And a tall drum shade can also help project more light through the room due to being elevated higher into the air.

This compact 4.5” H round traditional lampshade has a flared 5” bottom with a narrow 3” top. A braided gold trim runs along the chandelier shade over a shimmery soft antique striped gold and black silk pattern base. 

Designer Advice:

Striped lamp shades can have lines that run horizontally or vertically along the cover’s surface. The shade material can be rough synthetics or soft natural fibers like slippery silk. Silk shades can inspire an aged, antique nuance that gives your room a fancy upscale feel compared to the coarse density of fiber-based lamp covers.

Buying Guide

Striped lamp shades are available in a myriad of colors, such as the classic white and black and the glamorous gold and white combo. The colors of the stripes will mainly depend on whether you want the lamp shade to complement your current decor or stand out and make a statement. For instance, if yellow accents are scattered around the room, you can keep the cohesion going with a yellow striped lamp shade.

Alternatively, a striped lamp shade in multi-tones such as purple, white, grey, and blue can add vibrancy and visual interest to an otherwise colorless room. Of course, you can count on gold and white striped lamp shades to add an unexpected twist to your space. Striped lamp shades in subtle colors like beige, peach, and powder pink will illuminate the room with understated elegance while those in bold colors such as red and green help create an eye-catching focal point.

Your striped lamp shades don’t necessarily need to match the other lighting fixtures in your room.

However, unless you’re opting for the most eclectic, bohemian, or Hollywood regency room, they should share at least one common feature in order to achieve a cohesive interior style.

For example, you could have striped lamp shades in the same style but different colors. Or how about the same palette but a completely different shape?
