Depending on where you use your contemporary table lamp you may need a lamp that is highly functional such as a curved neck lamp on the stand next to a favorite reading chair. In other cases, you may want a lamp that creates more of an atmosphere such as soft romantic glow in the bedroom while at other times you may need a lamp that serves both purposes at once. Knowing what purpose you want your contemporary table lamp to serve will help you to look for the right lamp for the purpose you need.
These lamps have come a long way from the earlier dome shaped or conical stuff commonly seen at homes and offices across the country. And more modern lamps come with dimmers that do not require switching off the light. You can adjust the light according to your needs while working on the table.
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.
