When looking at antique lamps make sure you check the condition before even plugging them in. The trouble areas are generally at either end of the cord. Frayed or even slightly nicked cords should not be used. If you are not confident as to whether they are safe or not, do not plug them in! If you do not feel qualified to repair the lamp, find a professional to do this for you. Most likely they will do it for the cost of a cord or very cheap.
Choose the proper height. A floor lamp's light should fall in a way that's useful, not invasive or glaring. If you place a very tall one next to your sofa, the glare from the bulb underneath might be annoying and not conducive at all to socializing in a calm environment. Make sure the lamp's light is diffused nicely, in the proper direction; selecting a piece with a flattering shade will help.
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.
