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.
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.
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).
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.
