Also I do love the relaxed atmosphere our bedside table lamps bring to the room where like everyone else I spend hours every night. Once again it's the ambient light that gets me! When I'm heading to bed after a long day I don't need bright lights glaring at me. I need rest, peace and calm. A well designed bedside lamp gives me that.
Lamps are one of my favourite furnishings around my house and have been for many years. When I was a young boy my parents were not wealthy and struggled to provide for our family needs. Basic lighting was all our family had and we didn't give much thought to ambient lighting and we certainly never contemplated exotic topics like how to clean your lamp shades! No we just had a bare globe in each room and that was sufficient.
Antique lamps include candle lamps, gas chandeliers, solar, astral, sconces, sinumbra oil lamps, kerosene lamps, piano lamps, banquet lamps and even electric lamps. These lamps also include the Victorian and American designed art-glass lamps and the various lighting devices. Antique lamps are bought for their designs and patterns. People collect antique lamps to enrich their collection. Some of these lamps are even sold to museums, depending on their historical value and exquisite periodic designs. They appeal to art collectors, either for their private collections or contribution to museums.
