Whether they`re custom-made and manufactured modern style table lamps have incorporated the use of new materials and new technology. Some of the innovations include the use of different glass materials metal surfaces and other materials that gives them a unique look. With the inclusion of new technology they can be leaps and bounds ahead of traditional and antique style lamps in terms of practicality. An example of this is the simple kinesthetic touch technology used in some lamps where a person can simply turn it on and off by tapping anywhere on it`s body.
Antique Style Lamps. Quite commonly the first thing that comes to mind when people think of "antique style" table lamps is an old rusty and dirty lamp from the 1920`s. That couldn`t be further from the truth as these "old school" lamps are becoming popular once again. In their own right antique lamps are seen as classy and beautiful works of art that happen to be very practical at the same time. Older homes or homes designed with vintage aesthetics will work perfectly with these types of lamps. But of course that doesn`t leave modern homes in the dark (no pun intended).
Now this crystal table lamp with a contemporary crystal-like shade is very unique and modern. It certainly is the complete opposite of the antique lamps we just looked at above! This lamp is has a chandelier style lighting from the 3 glass "lamp shades". It has a slim stem and a round base to give it plenty of support. It is made of acrylic and steel and the manufacturer says it is easy to assemble. It uses normal 40-watt chandelier bulbs which you should be able to get at any hardware store. I am not sure exactly what kind of lighting this lamp provides but it sure is one of the most unique elegant and contemporary table lamps available!
Sculptural Qualities: In determining the lamp`s sculptural qualities such as size bulk and color the location and visual function of the lamp needs to be considered. Also the table lamp should look good whether it is turned on or off. Size: Typically short or narrow lamps are more appropriate on smaller tables and bulkier and taller lamps are better suited on larger tables or surfaces. A lamp located on a buffet table and other narrow surface should typically be more narrow or shorter. On a petite nesting table or a narrow console a tall and narrow candlestick lamp may be the best choice.
