Soft Back Shades
 

Soft back shades use fabrics that may be stretched, shirred or pleated over a metal frame. The placement and contour of the struts give the shade its shape and allow the material on the outside to follow the shape of the frame, which makes it possible to achieve a wide variety of shapes including bells, scallops, rounded corners, v-notches and gallery bottoms. Because the manufacture of a soft back shade is labor intensive, these shades tend to be a little more expensive than the hardback shades – although, they also last much longer.

 

Hard Back Shades​
 

Hardback shades are made by laminating fabric or paper onto a styrene backing. Each shade has a top and a bottom ring, that the laminated fabric is then taped to. The inner styrene liner can be translucent or opaque, while the outer, visible fabric can be any type of woven fabric including linen, silk, satin, muslin, or parchment paper. Hardback shades are not washable, and over time the plastic liner will yellow with age, & crack, distorting the quality of the light produced by the lamp.
