Lamp shades are fixtures used to cover a light bulb fixed in a lamp that diffuses its light. They can be created out of a wide variety of materials like paper, glass, fabric, or stone. Usually, they are conical or cylindrical in shape and can be used at a lot of places like floor, desk, tabletop, or suspended lamps.
