Depending on where you use your contemporary table lamp you may need a lamp that is highly functional such as a curved neck lamp on the stand next to a favorite reading chair. In other cases, you may want a lamp that creates more of an atmosphere such as soft romantic glow in the bedroom while at other times you may need a lamp that serves both purposes at once. Knowing what purpose you want your contemporary table lamp to serve will help you to look for the right lamp for the purpose you need.
When looking at antique lamps remember to not clean them up so much. This is especially true with the brass and sterling lamps. Cleaning them too much devaluates them considerably. On the popular series Antiques Road Show I am always amazed at the person with the 100 year old piece of brass that would have sold for $5,000 but one can of Brass-o later is worth about a buck fifty.
When looking at antique lamps make sure you check the condition before even plugging them in. The trouble areas are generally at either end of the cord. Frayed or even slightly nicked cords should not be used. If you are not confident as to whether they are safe or not, do not plug them in! If you do not feel qualified to repair the lamp, find a professional to do this for you. Most likely they will do it for the cost of a cord or very cheap.
