There are two main parts to lamps that can be decorative and they are the base and the lampshade. Although you can have both very decorative, it is better to have one that is plain and the other striking. This will have the most effect on your decorative table lamps and changing the color of the bulb can change the whole feeling in the room altogether. You may be tempted to buy very large table lamps; however, you have to imagine what they will look like on the table they are to be placed on. If they will dwarf the table, you might be better with smaller ones. You need to consider where the lamps are to be put before choosing.
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.
