I love the sense of style that a lamp brings to a room. An elegant floor lamp adds class to a room giving it a welcoming vibe and a sense of rest. Stylish lamp shades also add color and vigour to the ambience of a room lifting it out of its beige funk. I also love the variety that lamps and their shades bring to a house. It's simply amazing the range of lamps and lamp shades you can buy today. It appears to me to be an explosion of creativity.
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.
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.
