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.
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.
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.
Second ask yourself where you plan to use the lamp. If you plan to light a big room with an undecorated wall a small lamp may feel unnecessarily tiny. A tall lamp may be more appropriate. Of course if you would like to place a lamp on top of a bookcase in your study a small lamp may work perfectly. Third ask yourself if you can live with a particular lamp style over time. Some lamps are distinctive and may look interesting in a store. However oddly-shaped or with protruding angles some lamps` unique style can quickly wear out their welcome. Remember you will see it every day. If you grow tired of looking at it the lamp is likely not doing its job. Take the time to consider how you will feel about your lamp 5 years from now.
