For those who are into something a little more modern there are lots of styles to choose from. Whatever your style preference though, you need to consider whether or not the lamp you are getting will fit your room. For example if you are looking for a table lamp for an end table, the height of the lamp should be such that it provides ample light to the area. This is dependent on the height of the table in relation to the couch, loveseat or chair next to the table. A three inch tall lamp would not only look silly if there is a 6 inch height difference, chances are it will not light anything. Typically, you should have 18-24 inches clearance from the bottom of the lamp shade to the arm of your furniture. This doesn't flood the entire room with light, but it will insure that you light more than the magazines on the table that you won't be able to read in the dark.
Estate sales often produce some of the most horrific lamps you can imagine, and also some of the most interesting. I'm a big antiquer myself and spend a lot of time looking over some of the strangest lighting options known to man. Like the "legs" lamp in A Christmas Story these lamps can get pretty off the way. However, every so often you run across that beauty that you can't pass up.
The purpose of lighting the house must be clearly known. Make sure you identify clearly the needs of the lamp because in an example of one for reading you need to get the correct lamp for reading. The brightness and dullness of it matters a lot depending on the purpose that the lamp is intended to meet.
When buying a modern floor lamp you must consider what you intend to use it for. A modern lamp meant for reading must be bright, while a lamp just for decoration does not necessarily have to light the room well. The two major factors when picking a functional modern lamp are size and lamp brightness. You will want a lamp that fits nicely into your home while still being tall enough and bright enough to light up your home. Too tall of a lamp can cause your room to look lopsided and if you have very low ceilings than your modern floor lamp just might not fit.
A lamp must also fit the mood of a room and the environment. Each room must have a different from the others depending on the use of the room. A bedroom table lamp cannot be the same as an office table lamp. The colors of the two lamps must differ because one is meant for a cool sleeping mood while the other is meant for a bright office. A bedroom lamp should bear colors that will make a person feel relaxed and hence be able to unwind.
