Drum

Shallow and tall drum lamp shades create a modern retro vibe ! Fine quality silk shades or USA American made hardbacks 5-20 inches wide for modern or vintage lamps

There are 2 types of drum lamp shades:
1) Shallow Drum Shades have a shorter squatty barrel shape
2) Tall Drum Lamp Shades have a taller typical barrel shape

Drum shades have many advantages over empire or bell shapes. They reflect light downward and an equal amount of lighting is reflected upward. The drum shape also generally provides a greater space away from the hot light bulb which allows manufacturers to increase the lamp wattage rating thereby providing more light.

A hint to the possible origin of drum lamp shade lies in the 18th-century French gambling card game called Bouillotte. It seems probable that drum shades may have evolved from this unique shape.
