    Are you looking for some completely different or love the shape but am tired of the colour and needs to be spruced up?


    For colour, you can paint it with fabric paint or use a nice stencil to change the looks (different coloured paints and a sea sponge to paint colour splotches in a random pattern??)

    For completely different and if you're a bit handy, hunt around to find a shade you like and with some tweaking maybe able to fit it with your present lamp, once you have figured out how everything is attached.

    Walmart, hobby lobby, home depot, just about anywhere.

    I would search on your favorite website: Amazon, Etsy, Overstock. Just measure the lampshade and, at whichever website you decide, type "round lamp shade, .....inches". That should get you started at least.

    Search google for antique floor lamp shades. You'll have to know what size you need (width, depth, and where it attaches at top. You have a stunning lamp. It deserves a quality shade.

    Although the base of your lamp is antique, the shade that you presently have appears to be modern. How is the shade attached to the hardware that holds the lightbulb? Could you post a picture of the top of the shade so that we can see in more detail what you are working with?
