A lamp globe, or even a lamp shade in a more common term, is a fixture that covers the bulb on a lamp to diffuse the lighting that it gives off or to block it in certain directions so it does not cause glare by shining straight in one's eyes.
For the living room, choose a lamp shade made of fabric or slightly opaque paper to provide warm glow in the room. If to be placed near a television, an opaque shade can be chosen to reduce glare. For a modern look, drum shades may be used and if traditional look is preferred, conical shades are recommended. For reading purposes, the lamp's bulb must be at least 60 Watts; a dimmer or three0way bulb can be used for modulating the brightness.
Contemporary lamps come in various types such as table lamps, desk lamps, floor lamps, shaded, and chandeliers. Also available are ceiling lamps, hanging lamps, pendant lamps, and wall sconces. Contemporary lamps are distinguished by their sleek designs and colorful appearance. They are made of various materials with varied finishes including steel, brass, and wrought iron. The look of these lamps typically conveys the current fashion and style, not occupying much space and yet lending a simple and trendy appeal. They come in attractive colors, designs, and textures with distinctive ornamentation and colorful embroidery.
