Fiberglass Lampshades

Retro Modern Lampshade and Pendant Lamp Shade Styles

Meteor Lights’ fiberglass lampshades are recommended as replacement shades on lamps in many styles, including retro-modern, 1950s, Eames, atomic, Danish Modern, mid-century/modern, tiki, vintage western, googie or biomorphic, and contemporary decor. Note that any style (except the sconce shield) can be made as a pendant lamp (hanging light fixture). The heights listed below are the standard default height for the shade style; we can customize these height to suit your needs in most cases. The default height for most pendant shades is at least 10″ tall, and 11″ or 12″ are ideal heights for most pendant shades. For the small sizes, 12″ is generally the best height.

These are the classic tiered lampshades from the 1940s and 1950s. This classic vintage modern style is contemporary once again. They are also known as the “double decker,” “triple decker,” and “birthday cake” lampshades. The regular two-tier is an appropriate replacement lampshade on many vintage and mid-century lamp designs. The reverse (or “upside-down”) two-tier lampshade is especially suited to retro/modern, atomic, and tiki lamps, and on many Danish Modern and retro-influenced contemporary lamps as well. The XL reverse two-tier pendant lamp shade looks great over large and standard-sized dining tables, and is appropriate for living rooms where the classic midcentury-modern vintage look is sought; the large and medium reverse two-tier pendant shade look great over smaller dining tables and dinette sets, and in bedrooms and dens. The three-tier fiberglass lampshades are a classic fifties design, and make for dramatic pendant light fixtures.

Atomic Tiered Lampshades and Pendant Lamp Shades

Atomic tiered lampshades are appropriate for the wilder fifites atomic, Jetsons, googie, biomorphic,and tiki lamps. The atomic three-tier shades also make great hanging lamps. The heights listed below are our standard heights for our atomic tiered lampshades, but these heights are somewhat customizable to your needs. Atomic tiered pendant shades are a minimum of 10″ tall.

Fiberglass Drum, Barrel, and Cylinder Lampshades and Pendant Lamp Shades:

The clean lines of the classic, minimalist drum lampshade works well with all mid-century and retro-influenced contemporary styles, and is a great choice for many Danish Modern lamps. Standard drum heights are 8″, 9″, or 10″. Taller heights are available; please see our Lampshade Shop for more details.

Pendant drum shades are at least 10″ tall. A gang of three or five 6″ dia. pendant shades look cool over a bar or a kitchen island. Larger diameters are recommended for general space illumination. The 18″ dia. shade makes a great pendant lamp.
