I'm afraid if it was my lampshade, I'd hang it how I like
it hung - and I'd use it for full room lighting with energy saving bulbs. Stuff the designer's intent!
(Michael keeps me in the dark anyway, I'm not allowed real full room lighting - just enough to stop me bumping into furniture too often.
Saving electricity on light keeps his mood
on an even keel, even if being in the dark subdues mine.
These sorts of shades do actually hide the horrible bulb - the whole point of a shade in the first place.
The shade you show there has a flat outside rim which is more conducive to putting the chains inside than a simple bowl shape is. :thup:
