Picking lampshades.

Picking lampshades.
I'm not gay enough to get this right, so please help. Is there a ratio of diameter/height of lampshade to height of lamp? I won't be able to "size" them in the store. 

Serious question.

Serious question.

Why not have the mistress of the house decide? You realize your decision will be wrong, not because what the decision is, but because you made it?

She gets off work at 2 am most days, not interested in shopping much. I cover as much ground as I can without bothering her. 

But yeah, "it's my fault, I have the testicles".

Measure the height of the lamp from the base to the top of the bulb. Depending on how tall it is, clearly will depend on the type of lampshade you need. Take a pic and give me the dimensions of the lamp and I'll help you out.

Oh, and it also depends on the size and type of table you're putting it on.

Wait there’s seriously an equation for this?

Nope.

Just checked. (Funny looks from people at the bus stop)...

I’m just amazed the depth of detail some people will go to.

Does it give light?
Does it fit into the decor of where it will be set up?

RE: Picking lampshades.
Lampshade makers have to have some kind of formula for diameter versus height so they can fit lamps they will never see, right?
