The drum lampshade shape is an enduring classic, standing the test of time. Popular in the 50’s and 60’s, the drum has made a strong comeback in the design world in the last several years. The hardback drum lampshade is constructed using a top ring and a bottom ring and the fabric is laminated to a hard plastic liner. The silk drum lampshades are made on a “frame” which consists of a set of inter-connected wires. The round top ring is attached to the round bottom ring by a series of vertical wires – which define the shape or style of the lampshade.
