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.
The most common variety which has halogen bulbs cannot be right for everyone. These bulbs can be very bright and tire the eyes. These are definitely not recommended for the children. They cannot study for long hours without the eyes getting droopy and tired. Some times the glimmer and flicker of long use of the halogen lamp can be another strenuous factor to the eyes. This kind of light is very focused only on the text that is being read. The other areas of the desk remain dark, unless the other light is on in the room. When one is looking for desk lamps, the main issue is the bulb and the light it throws on the study material and work at hand. The design and features come second. The utility stands over the décor part.
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.
