15 inch (large) drum shade
Shown in caramel with brown arcs and brown lanyard (can be made in any color/pattern combination)
15″ drum shades are suitable for smaller floor lamps, medium-large table lamps (approximately 15″ tall), hanging over smaller dining tables and dinettes, and in medium-sized rooms. They are great on end-table lamps that bookend living room couches, and are suitable for hanging as pendant lamps in kitchens and bedrooms. 15″ dia. pendant shades are available with diffusers. As with all of our shades, we make the large size drum shade in any color/pattern/lanyard combination, in different heights, and with several pendant lamp options.
Whether the shade has strong, bold colors or muted tones, the simple lines and clean geometry of a drum lampshade makes it perfectly-suited for contemporary lighting applications. The strong geometric shapes of midcentury modern design have widespread and deep influence on contemporary design. Art Deco design in the 1930s had already done away with fussy ornamentation and elaborate embellishment, and the young industrial designers of the 1950s for the most part kept the idea of form follow function foremost in their design aesthetic. Contemporary design has a similar concern for these essentials, and what’s old is new again. The 1950s drum lampshade style is contemporary once again.
