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.
You can get a table lamp in any size, style and shape. That is why there is a wide range to choose from. You can choose any table lamp which best suits your place whether you want it for bed side or as reading lamps. There are different types of lamps available like Tiffany Lamps, Mica lamps, Country lamps, Crystal Lamps, Hand painted table lamps, Traditional style lamps, etc. The task of all these lamps is lighting the place where it is installed.
As I got older my parents prospered and suddenly lamps began appearing in our lounge room. I have vivid memories of a bright orange colored lamp shade on a wooden lamp stand that took pride of place in our lounge for many years. However items like a desk lamp, a bedside lamp or a glass lamp shade never really became a big part of our home furnishings. Mum would shop for many things but exotic lighting with brightly colored lamp shades rarely made it onto her shopping list.
