Traditional has a forward sweeping shade that gives it an angled look. Contemporary features a rounded shade that's symmetrical and neat. Slimline is a form of contemporary. It has swooping thin arms that reach out over the picture and, like the names says, very slim features so as not to interfere with the image.
