Lamp Shades

The Perfect Shade

At A Better Shade in Tucson, we are experts at helping you select the right size, right color, perfect style shade, and perfect trims for your lamp. We work regularly with designers to create shades for room re-decorating or new homes.

Choose from our vast collection of shades made from parchment, linen, silk, and leather. Our shades can cover the tiniest mini sconce, the grandest chandeliers, and any size floor or table lamps. We can beautify any lamp – antique, ceiling, pendant, bridge, modern, or victorian. Select from a range of lighting shapes including drum, rectangular, square, large, small, tall, round, and cylinder for different light needs.

Our shades are available in soft-sided or hard-backed forms.

  • A soft-sided shade is a more traditional look with fabric on the outside of the shade and lining on the inside of the fabric. Soft-sided shades are either pleated or stretched.

  • A hard-backed shade is either parchment or fabric that is laminated. Hard-backed shades are used more often in contemporary settings.


Creating unique custom lamp shades is A Better Shade’s specialty, but you may find the perfect shade already made in stock. We offer a huge collection of shades to provide a more budget conscious solution for our customers. If we don’t have what you are looking for just ask us.  We have a wide variety of colors in stock, including black, white, blue, red, purple, orange, and navy, to name just a few.
