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.
To buy the best desk lamp for your room, there are several things to consider. The first thing is to take into account the style and décor of the room. Pay close attention to the accessories that flank the desk lamp. Then, select a lamp that blends in with all of these. Coordinate the style of the lamp with the rest of the articles in the room. Coordinate the color of the desk lamp with the primary colors you have used in the room. For instance, a brightly colored desk lamp would blend in beautifully with the pep and cheer of a colorful children's room, but may look weird when placed in a room that is predominantly Victorian in style.
Modern floor lamps are particularly useful. You can adjust the lighting intensity and length of the tripod, changing the direction of light in a desired direction. Some models can even vary at will the shape of the lamp. Floor lamp with shade create a soft, diffused light. This effect is achieved by using special light-scattering materials: rice paper, cotton, blown glass or acrylic plastic. Designer lampshades, by contrast, creates a concentrated light to target the desired coverage areas.
There are tons of table lamp options on the market and off the market these days. Rather than describe all of the lamps in the world (who would read that much) we have decided to break things down into four categories of table lamps. We did all of that just for you to get a feel for things. No, no need to thank us, just doing our job.
If your home is modern and you are simply not sure what type of contemporary lamp will most suit your home's décor, choose a lamp that is simple yet elegant. Wood, glass, and metallic bases are all great choices and there are many elegant styles available including hourglass shapes, rectangle and tri pod, triangle and round. Use decorative lighting that gives off a soft homey glow for entryways, and dining rooms, and of course that romantic bedroom. If you have a particularly dark corner in a room, then a somewhat brighter light can make the area feel more welcoming and attractive. However, don't choose decorative lighting that makes your home look like an airport runway. Softer light is friendlier and more flattering making everyone feel more comfortable and look more attractive.
