Selena Table Lamps June 13th, 2018 - 05:31:53
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!
Lampshades: For general purpose lighting it is better to choose a lamp with a lampshade that has some degree of transparency such as a fabric weave or glass that is light in color. A semi-transparent lampshade gives a room a softer look. On the other hand a lampshade that has little transparency will provide a stronger more concentrated light pattern which can create a dramatic effect. A lampshade that has a wider brim at the bottom will spread the light out toward the bottom which is good for a reading lamp.
Modern Style Lamps. While antique style lamps are considered works of art with lots of practicality the same can be said about a number of modern style lamps out there. Modern style lamps are available everywhere (especially online) but you have to look in the right place for the best ones. Antique lamps may be classy and vintage but modern lamps have developed into very unique works of art and engineering. The design aesthetics can be quite unorthodox yet simple. And the functions and technology that go with it have advanced greatly for ease of use.
First ask yourself if you are only person that will be using the lamp on a daily basis and if you will use it often. A lamp must be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. If you plan to do a lot of reading at a table in your home office you may need a stronger light from a short lamp. Alternatively if you want to create a warm mood in your living room a softer light from a tall lamp will be more effective. Further your office may need a lamp that is short casts a lot of light and doesn`t attract unnecessary attention to itself.
