Among modern lamp styles, materials like embossed porcelain or crystal can lend a fancy look to your space whereas having a lamp with a wood or polished metal base can add charm and texture to virtually any room. You will want to ensure that the texture and color of your lamp's base doesn't jar with the furnishing on which it's resting.
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.
Colour choices in lampshades will depend on personal preference, the lamp style and colour, and the decor in the room. Multi-coloured or hand painted lamps should be paired with a muted or single colour shade. For single colour lamps, shades can range from complementary colours to crazy prints.
