The more ornate the lamp, the simpler the shade should be and vice versa. Pleated shades look more traditional while flat shades work with almost any decor. However, pleated shades are hard to keep dusted, so smooth shades are an optimum choice.
It is not necessary to stick with the same decor style - unless you want to make a strong statement about that particular style. If updating a traditional room - a contemporary or modern lamp may be the right choice. But, be sure to relate the existing decor in some manner - through color, scale, and/or material. Typically, conical shaped shades provide a more traditional look, whereas a drum shade provides a more modern look.
Tiffany lamps are being used for around past hundred years. It has a distinct design and is handmade. It is constructed using various bits of stained glass held together with copper foil. Mica lamps are made by mixing mineral mica flakes with organic shellac. Using different proportions of these materials different colors and patterns are made.
