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.
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.
Having the table lamps allow you to have more flexibility as they can be moved around your home and are not fixed like other lighting options. You can simply pick up the decorative table lamps and move them to another area when needed. You can use them for lighting a specific area or move them around when you want added lighting elsewhere. The brightness of the bulb in the table lamps will determine how much light you will have. You can feature the decorative table lamps in your decor and you will be surprised how great they look.
