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.
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.
