Shades styles are limited by imagination, but there are several styles that are generally familiar to most.
Empire - A round shade with a straight sloped side, the most popular shade style.
Bell - A distinctive flared shape, like a bell, narrower at the top than at the bottom, a very traditional choice.
Drum - A round or oval shape with straight sides, the top and bottom diameter are generally the same, or very close in size. A classic shape, can be used in a traditional or contemporary setting.
Coolie - A round shade, much like the Empire, but with an exaggerated pitch to the sloped side.
