This pair of table lamps features square white shades. I like how these lamps balance the round shade of the pendant overhead.
Tip: If the pendant were square, there would be a lot of rigid corners in this room. Keep in mind you want to balance out the square shapes in a room (think of all the doorways and tables that already have cut corners) with some round shapes to keep it interesting.
This nightstand lamp feels more modern due to its square corners and black color. And the angular sides complement the shape of the four-poster bed.
This contemporary bedroom feels modern and masculine. The black square shades tie in with the simple solid white, gray and metallic bed linens.
Tip: Square lampshades naturally feel more masculine than round shades. Bell shades, in particular, have a more feminine shape.
The square shade on this nightstand lamp adds to the architectural details of this bedroom. (Look at all the moldings!) And it's a perfect fit for the glass lamp base, which almost disappears so you see the room's dominant wall color through the glass.
