One of the first things you will need to consider when purchasing a contemporary lamp is the room in which the lamp will be placed. Obviously, your choice for a child's playroom lamp will different from the lamp you choose for your modern living room, or your formal dining room. The decor of the rooms you use contemporary ones will in some ways limit your choice of the lamps you choose. A chrome and glass lamp will look out of place in a Victorian living or bedroom. So make sure that the lamp you choose fits the room in which it will be placed.
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.
Choose the proper height. A floor lamp's light should fall in a way that's useful, not invasive or glaring. If you place a very tall one next to your sofa, the glare from the bulb underneath might be annoying and not conducive at all to socializing in a calm environment. Make sure the lamp's light is diffused nicely, in the proper direction; selecting a piece with a flattering shade will help.
