The Cut Corner Square Bell Silk lampshade with a Gallery is a variation on the standard Cut Corner Square Silk Bell lampshade. The width of the square top of the lampshade is about 2/3 of the width of the bottom square, and the corners are cut at a 45 degree angle – hence the description “Cut Corner”. Along the bottom of the lampshade there is a gallery. A gallery is a vertical design element added to the bottom of the lampshade which conforms to the shape of the bottom of the lampshade. The shape of the Gallery on the Cut Corner Square Silk Bell lampshade includes the “cut corners”. The gallery is 1.5″ in height and can be made with either the same fabric as the body of the lampshade or it can be covered in a different fabric, a different treatment (eg., a pleat) or a decorative trim. And, as it’s name suggests, the Cut Corner Square Bell Silk lampshade with a Gallery flares gently from the top of the shade to the bottom of the lampshade. The Cut Corner Square Bell Silk lampshade with a Gallery is most often used on square bases with a bit of a curved shape. Depending upon the fabric selected – from an open weave linen or cotton to a fine pongee silk, the Cut Corner Square Bell Silk lampshade with a Gallery can be an interesting complement to square based lamps in a number of different interior decors.
