It is not necessary to stick with the same decor style - unless you want to make a strong statement about that particular style. If updating a traditional room - a contemporary or modern lamp may be the right choice. But, be sure to relate the existing decor in some manner - through color, scale, and/or material. Typically, conical shaped shades provide a more traditional look, whereas a drum shade provides a more modern look.
Home lamps can be a great way to accessorize your home and provide lighting at the same time. The physical appearance of the lamp, the type of light the lamp casts, and where the light is cast, all contribute in creating the room's ambiance. There are many different types of lamps for the home, such as: Table Lamps, Bedside Table Lamps, Buffet Table Lamps, Desk Lamps, Floor Lamps, and Accent Lamps. Regardless of the type, when choosing a lamp, keep in mind location, style, and type of lighting needed.
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.
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.
