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).
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.
Questions To Consider When Choosing A Table Lamp. Table lamps are available in all shapes and sizes. Some cast more light than others. Some cast softer light than others. Some are tall while others are short. This variety allows you complete flexibility when choosing a lamp for your home or office. Much of your decision will depend upon who will use the table lamp what mood you would like to promote and your personal decorative tastes.
You can choose from fringed lampshades plain fabric lampshades glass fibers and many more designs. It is worth taking as much time as you need to select the perfect one. For something a little more modern how about a traditional desk lamp or something quirky like a lamp with the sun moon and stars on? You can get copper-based lamps gold effect lamps silver lamps and many more types. Your table lamps should match both your personality and requirements.
