Lamps are one of my favourite furnishings around my house and have been for many years. When I was a young boy my parents were not wealthy and struggled to provide for our family needs. Basic lighting was all our family had and we didn't give much thought to ambient lighting and we certainly never contemplated exotic topics like how to clean your lamp shades! No we just had a bare globe in each room and that was sufficient.
A lamp globe, or even a lamp shade in a more common term, is a fixture that covers the bulb on a lamp to diffuse the lighting that it gives off or to block it in certain directions so it does not cause glare by shining straight in one's eyes.
Colour choices in lampshades will depend on personal preference, the lamp style and colour, and the decor in the room. Multi-coloured or hand painted lamps should be paired with a muted or single colour shade. For single colour lamps, shades can range from complementary colours to crazy prints.
