Empire lamp shades are shaped like a cone with the top lopped off. This conical lamp shade family also has the same three basic members: coolie, empire, and euro.

Empire shades have the most classic lampshade shape, they have the smallest variance between top and bottom. This style is extremely versatile and widely used. A hardback empire lamp shade will look great even in the most modern New York City apartment.
