  • Bowl – light spreads downwards through the basin-shaped brim. These lamps are a variant of the empire shade
  • Square – lamps with sides of equal size
  • Bell – traditional décor with light spreading sideways at the bottom of the lamp’s curved sides
  • Drum – light spreads upwards through the cylindrical shape with tall sides and wide rims
  • Rectangular – these lamps have two sides that are longer than the others
