Reverse Cascade Pendant Lamp

  • style: reverse cascade 3-tier
  • size: xl (18 inch diameter)
  • colors, top to bottom: coffee, mocha, sand
  • design: combo arcs pattern
  • material: fiberglass parchment

The Reverse Cascade Three-Tier shade is like a wedding cake turned upside-down. The retro mod style recalls late 1950s-early 1960s lighting design. The shape looks a bit unusual at first, because we’re used to seeing shades taper from narrow at the top to wide at the bottom, but we don’t recall there being a law that says all shades must conform to the traditional small top/wide bottom cone shape. We can make this style as a pendant lamp or as a lampshade.

The dimensions on the one above are 18″ diameter top tier, 13″ dia. middle tier, and 8″ bottom tier. The heights — both the total height and the height of the respective tiers — can be customized. Experimenting with the heights of the different tiers makes for some interesting variations of the basic configuration. We also make a somewhat smaller version of this retro mod shade, with 15″ dia. top tier, 10″ dia. middle tier, and 6″ dia. bottom tier.
