If opting for a pendant drum lampshade we also offer a couple of drum lampshade diffusers. A layin diffuser that covers the entire bottom of the drum lampshade and a floating diffuser which is normally made 100mm smaller than the shade which floats inside the bottom ring of the drum lampshade (hence the name). Drum lampshades benifit from a diffuser as it does help to soften and hide the light source.
