As we all know anytime we start talking about the best crystal table lamp we have to start with Waterford Crystal. Nothing beats the quality style and sheer beauty of Waterford Crystal products. So let`s start by looking at this 26" Waterford Crystal table lamp. This table lamp has a brass base in a step up design beginning with the largest step on the bottom. The carved feet really set off this lamp very well and the glass stem gives the lamp a stylish yet open feel. The white fabric shade is 16" and it has a 3-way rotating light switch so that you can set your desired lighting level. The maximum bulb you should use is a 100-watt bulb. There is just a slight bit of assembly required for this Waterford Crystal lamp that will take all of 5 minutes.
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.
In the early 1900`s a large Tiffany Lamp cost around $100 with the smaller lamps costing around $40. The price of a beautiful Tiffany Lamp hasn`t changed much in the last hundred plus years if you take into account the rise of inflation. When you consider the cost of either style of lamp as they did a hundred years ago consider also their lasting timeless beauty. The years of enjoyment you will receive from a Tiffany Table Lamp or Tiffany Accent Lamp may be well worth the investment.
