As well as having a lamp that suits a set purpose your contemporary table lamp should also fit your room's décor. For example, a gorgeous driftwood lamp may be perfect for that beach house a room with an ocean style décor but will simply detract from the overall effect of an ultra modern living room. While a beautiful bauble chrome lamp may look perfect and even add a touch of chic drama to a modern living room, it will look out of place in a country style kitchen or Victorian dining room. So, make sure when you choose a contemporary table lamp that it going to enhance your décor and not detract from it.
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.
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.
