If you’re going to use your lamp mainly for reading you would want a fairly sheer lampshade that doesn’t trap light. A thin-fabric lampshade should do. As a general rule of thumb for reading and table lamps you will want the lampshade to be just over half the height of the base. If the lamp is going to be set on the floor and let off more light a lampshade that’s only one-fourth the base’s height would be better.
What is it about seeing a Tiffany style lamp that brings awe-inspiring looks from those who see them? The beauty and elegance? The craftsmanship? The colors? Probably all of the above.
