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).

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.
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.
Lighting Needs: Identify the function of the lamp in terms of lighting needs. Is the lamp`s purpose to provide general area (also called ambient) reading or accent lighting? Wattage: If there are other light sources in the room a 60 watt bulb may provide enough light for a living room. However if only using one or two lamps to light up an entire room it may be best to invest in a 100 to 150 watt bulb or a 3-way bulb. This also gives sufficient light for reading. A reading lamp should offer 150 or more watts. In general rooms should have a light source every 10 feet or so.
