Meteor Lights’ 3-tier Shade is one of the classic vintage styles most associated with Eames-era (i.e.Midcentury Modern) lighting design.

This style is a great shade choice for our light fixtures and pendant lamps – for dining rooms, dens, foyers, restaurants, bars, lobbies, and almost any other room. The vintage 1950s-style 3-tier shade style works great on most floor lamps; for some vintage floor lamp styles that have torchiere bowl diffusers and/or candle socket cluster arrayed around the center of the lamp, it is important that there is enough clearance between the smaller tier and the bowl or socket cluster. Contact us for more information if you have any questions about this.

The 3-tier shade also works well on many table lamps, especially the vintage 1950s/Eames-era style lamps which originally sported this shade model. The 3-tier also work on many modern lamp styles, but in general, because the smaller bottom tier is such a break from traditional shade geometry, it is a bit trickier to fit than the regular 2-tier shade. When it works, the 3-tier shade is a knockout, but if in doubt, it is almost always a safe bet to go with the regular 2-tier style.
