The regular 2-tier and reverse 2-tier lampshades are both classic Mid-century/Modern styles, but there is a key difference. The regular 2-tier (small top tier, large bottom tier) approximates the volume of a standard cone shade, and will look good on almost any lamp on which a cone shade will work, and is suited to many traditional, vintage, and contemporary lamp styles. However, the reverse 2-tier shade, with the larger top tier and smaller bottom tier, has a different geometry, and while it usually can work on a lamp on which the regular 2-tier looks appropriate, there are exceptions. The reverse 2-tier shade has a more traditional vintage appearance, while the reverse 2-tier style presents a decidedly more modern appearance.
