If your home is modern and you are simply not sure what type of contemporary lamp will most suit your home's décor, choose a lamp that is simple yet elegant. Wood, glass, and metallic bases are all great choices and there are many elegant styles available including hourglass shapes, rectangle and tri pod, triangle and round. Use decorative lighting that gives off a soft homey glow for entryways, and dining rooms, and of course that romantic bedroom. If you have a particularly dark corner in a room, then a somewhat brighter light can make the area feel more welcoming and attractive. However, don't choose decorative lighting that makes your home look like an airport runway. Softer light is friendlier and more flattering making everyone feel more comfortable and look more attractive.
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.
Table lamps are making a comeback. And if course right along with it is an increase in demand for table lamp shades. At one time, these lamps were very common, especially in the form of desk lamps. After all, there was loads of paperwork to be done. But them came the home computer and the paperless office. All of a sudden, there wasn't quite the need to table lamps and desk lamps anymore, except of course for decoration.
