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.
Another consideration will be how the lamp will be used. If you are choosing a floor lamp to add light to a corner where you will be doing a lot of reading, an arched lamp would be a better investment for this purpose than a clamp lamp might be. On the other hand, if you want a contemporary floor lamp to add ambiance to your dining room then you might want to choose a floor lamp such as a Sheffield floor lamp that gives off a soft glow rather than a bright light. Keep in mind that lighting can be used to create atmosphere as well as add light to darkened corner. Choosing a contemporary floor lamp like a Medusa lamp with several colorful shades can give the feel a large flower in an empty corner of a room and draw attention away from less attractive areas.
Lamps do more for your home than simply provide light. They can enhance a room's décor, create a mood, or simply add grace and beauty to any room in your home. Today's contemporary table lamps run the gambit from highly functional to the most exquisite decorative lighting you can imagine. There are so many different styles to choose from in contemporary table lamps that making a decision on which lamp to buy may be more difficult than your think. To make that decision a little simpler here are a few tips on what to consider when choosing decorative lighting for your home.
