Ladder Chain: a chain used on a hanging lamp that has links resembling a ladder. Most often made of brass or plated metal.
Lamp Shade: The shade serves the important function of blocking the glare from a light bulb and is usually the most decorative part of a lamp. The lamp shade can be made of glass, fabric, metal, or other more creative materials.
Track Lighting: a system of lighting that uses individual lamps mounted to a track and, in turn, mounted to a wall or ceiling. Each light moves, swivels, and can be directed in different areas of a room to light many areas all at once. Some tracks can also support pendant lamps, chandeliers, or other types of ceiling-mounted lighting.
Wall Plate: a plate attached to a wall that holds a lamp in place. The lamp can either be a bracket-style lamp or a pendant lamp.
