      For table lamps, the height of the shade should be approximately 60% to 80% of the height of the lamp base. For floor lamps, the height of the shade should be around 20% of the height of the lamp base.
      The second measurement should be the width of the shade. The lampshade should be about 2x wider than the widest part of the base. Calculate this simply by measuring the widest part of the lamp base and multiplying by two.
