Choosing a lamp for a bedroom involves picking one which may add beauty to the private room. The size of a bedside lamp usually depends on the height of your night table. Yet when your bed is tall, the lamp should not be over than 30 inches. When choosing a lamp for reading, the light should fall just right on the reading material. The base of the lamp must not be flimsy or bulky. There are other things which need to be placed on the table such as the alarm clock or glass of water so an adequate size of lamp base must be chosen. Bedroom lamps must be placed as close as possible to the wall to make room for other items.
Antique Lamps can be found with various antique dealers and are sold in either 'restored' or 'as found' condition. The lamps are restored by polishing, burnishing or replacing some parts and not by interfering with their vintage value. Catalogs of the antique lamps in stores can be found online with the complete description and historical significance. Prices depend on the vintage value and rarity of the design and art- work on the lamp.
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.
