For a timeless finish that complements traditional décor, you can pair a tapered lamp shade with a heavy base. If you want an old world look, also opt for heavy, opulent fabric on the shade. Marble and stone bases in contrasting or complementary colours will work well.

For balance, the shade and its base should have the same sort of shape. That means, if you have a square base it would look best with a square shade. In terms of proportions, the shade be between a half and three-quarters of the size of the base. It should be roomy enough that you cannot see the internal hardware components of the lamp.
