I took delivery of my shade a week ago, but was unable to get it into full-time use until earlier this afternoon. And here's why. (Oh, by the way, this shade is excellent, both in quality and construction! Who would've thought that one could find such a small lamp shade having a spider-style mounting?)
I decided to take an older lamp I bought roughly a decade ago, and converted it from being a cheaply-made wall mount model into a more advanced fixture - but still retained the plug-in cable. And to keep the brass base on my lamp from scratching the solid pine wood walls in my living room, I had a family friend build me a nice wood base for it to mount on prior hanging it on the wall behind my TV.
I got another lamp for Christmas this past year, a lamp I thought would be replacing this one here. But instead, I chose to salvage the older lamp and return it to use in my living room - just in a different spot than where it was before.
The lamp I got for Christmas also got itself a facelift, and I used the older harp from it to add on to what is now my 'project' lamp. And believe me, it looks fabulous in the place where I've got it mounted.
I ordered (2) of these shades for reasons of perfect drum size and linen fabric. Also, they're made in the USA, a great selling point and something I'm mindful of. They work well, but not great. I would expect a shade of such small dimension to have a thicker linen fabric for the price, the ones I received are thin and sheer like something I could buy at Walmart. Also, the folded trim has large pieces in thread embedded in the fabric on both. This is very obvious when the lamp is on and illuminated. It's just not the clean look I want. Bottom line, they work for the contemporary look I need, but I won't order from this line again.
