Frequently seen choice for a ceiling rose lampshade

Frequently seen choice for a ceiling rose lampshade

Click to view full size image

Most flats, houses and some of my friend's houses have these globe paper lampshades for pendant/ceiling rose lights

They cause a significant drop in lumen output as they diffuse the light source effectively

Absolutely right. Sounds like you don't like this lampshade design. I don't like it too, hence that is why I do not have any of them in my house

I will give LEDisease a taste of my shoe

Bare lamps are good and mostly I have 2 capiz shell lampshades, chandeliers with nice candle bulbs etc.

Bet at one of my friends house, there was the same lampshade with some greyish deco patterns which of course made the dimming of the light output worse!

I have one of these downstairs, it has a 105W GLS-shape halogen inside and is quite bright. The filament is visible when lit but is still comfortable to look at

Say NO to DICTATORSHIP in the form of bulb/tube/ballast bans !!

Yep me too at one of my friends house, the corridor landing and upstairs corridor have ceiling rose light with these shades 2 on the landing and 1 on the upstairs corridor.

These shade can be a fire risk too and in fact this light is running a Diall HALOGEN LAMP!!!

SL CFLs are cool, awesome, magic and reliable

I'd put a glass cuboid shade so I can see the SL lamp

Those paper shades were all a rage in the 80s 90s sold by Habitat and Ikea , never liked them myself.

Interested in the history of electric lighting and incandescent in particular and neon glow lamps.

We had such a fixture in my brother room at my mother home, when I was a baby. Shortly after, it was replaced by the current 40W pendant rise and fall circular fluorescent fixture.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

UPDATE: this fixture is now running a (assumed 11W) 2U CFL which starts of dim but then gets bright and has a nice neutral white colour (3500K ?)
