Atomic three-tiered lampshade in the vintage fifties lighting style, available in a wide range of sizes, colors, and patterns.
medium (13″ diameter)
main tier: desert rose
top + bottom tiers: butterscotch
The mirrored angled tier shape of the atomic 3-tier shade is one the most characteristic 1950s designs. As a lamp shade, it works great on many vintage 1950s lamps, but it is important to get the scale of the shade correct. The bottom angled tier doesn’t work with every lamp style, but it’s a knockout when on many vintage lamp bases that incorporate angles or other strong geometric shapes into the base configuration. This shade style also makes a great, eye-catching pendant lamp style, and is great for dramatic lighting, whether in restaurants or bars, or for a vintage touch in your own dining room or kitchen. The pendant shade style can also be fitted with a bottom diffuser, although they usually aren’t necessary on the medium-sized shade.
