When redecorating your home, there are many different items of furniture that you can use to make your home look and feel fantastic. If you have the right type of lighting, your home will feel warm and inviting and having decorative table lamps can do this. If you choose the right type of lamps, they can finish your room off and ensure that you have lighting that is useful as well decorative. There are many different designs and styles to choose from and which one you select will depend on your budget and taste.
Torchiere. This type is among the easily recognizable varieties of floor lamps. Torchieres are also called torch lamps and were already being used in Europe even as far back as the 17th century. The lighting source then were wax candles that were mounted on tall stands made of metal or wood. Today's version, of course, can be of any lamp type (wax candles, incandescent bulbs, fluorescent light, halogen bulbs, etc.) and any stand material (wood, metal, plastic, composites, alloys, ceramics, etc). Torchieres usually take up only a small space in the room, are shaped unobtrusively, and provide well-diffused lighting by radiating the lamp beams towards the ceiling. For these reasons, torchiere lamps are highly sought after by building owners who intend to optimize limited spaces or project a minimalist style in the interior design.
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.
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.
There are tons of table lamp options on the market and off the market these days. Rather than describe all of the lamps in the world (who would read that much) we have decided to break things down into four categories of table lamps. We did all of that just for you to get a feel for things. No, no need to thank us, just doing our job.
