buffet lampshade help, pls
I have made him mine! That handsome boy over there, the one with the watermelon hair is winging his way to my home (for those of you who think I've lost it see this thread).
I have a pair of these lamps (they are not crooked - the photographer can't seem to hold the phone straight) that I'd like to use. I like them but I can't seem to ever get the shade right. The candlestick base is like old worn silver set on a black base. The "candle" is off-white. The black base is 6" in diameter. They are 31" tall to the top of the harp.
Please suggest shades for these lamps: color, material, and size. I'm stumped. "Buffet" shades seem too small. A regular lampshade is too large. Is there a formula for choosing the correct size lamp shade?
