Rectangle Half Shade

Rectangle Half Shade

Custom rectangle half lampshades, sometimes referred to as sconce shades or ADA lampshades, are as easy to order as our regular lamp shades. They differ from regular lampshades in that a portion of the shade is cut away. This allows placement of the lampshade closer to the wall, or creating a "shield" or half-shade effect which reflects light back against the wall.

Proper position of the fitter relative to the front or back of the shade is critical for half-shades, so be as specific as possible when describing how you want your lamp shade to connect to your lamp.


For shades with measurements exceeding 30 inches, please order a Commercial shade.

Measure the distance between the center points of the top and bottom rings, along the broad face of the shade.

Not sure what type of FITTER you need? Click on the Fitter Styles link under the Lamp Shade Options menu bar to the left.

"The Drop" describes how far down the fitter attachment is relative to the top of the shade. A 0" drop means the fitter is flush with the top. A 1/2" drop means the fitter is placed 1/2" below the top of the shade. And so on.

The visible hardware (spokes, etc) can be any color you wish.

Please describe the exact position of the fitter relative to either the front or back of the lamp shade. If you are replacing a half-shade, an emailed photo of your current shade is extremely helpful.
