What Is a Drum Shade?
Well-loved for their versatility and the variety of lamp styles they fit, drum shades are shorter versions of cylinder shades, which often have a greater width than their height. Named because their classic form looks like a drum, this style of lampshade typically has a top and a base of equal or very similar diameter. Their classic shape makes them an ideal fit for lamp bases with wide bases, as well. With multiple variations and shapes, however, drum shades can offer variety and visual interest for any style.
How to Style Drum Lampshades in Your New York City Home
When it comes to complementing your home's style with the look of your lampshade, the right choice depends on your personal aesthetic — but you should follow a few general guidelines to make your lamp choice look as beautiful as possible. To create a visual balance, make sure the shade complements your lamp base proportionately and stylistically.
Your shade style should fit or complement the base style. For example, a traditional or elegant lamp base would look best with an equally elegant shade — like a V-notch drum — while a more modern base would fit better with a cylinder or rectangle hardback drum. Your lampshade should also fit your base in terms of size, hanging no lower than your lamp base's top and extending slightly wider than the base's bottom.
Balancing your shade with other elements of the room decor is crucial, as well. If you have multiple lamps in one room, make sure their shades have at least one unifying feature — like material, color or shape.
Whatever your home's aesthetic, drum shades offer a variety of visually interesting options for your New York City home. Stop by our storefront, shop online or call (646) 846-9228 for information on your own custom lampshade today.
