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.
If you're going to use your lamp mainly for reading, you would want a fairly sheer lampshade that doesn't trap light. A thin-fabric lampshade should do. As a general rule of thumb for reading and table lamps, you will want the lampshade to be just over half the height of the base. If the lamp is going to be set on the floor and let off more light, a lampshade that's only one-fourth the base's height would be better.
If you know that your lamp is setting on a table or desk that isn't going to get jostled in the near future, then you could safely go with a more decorative or lighter weight lamp. Also, the ratio of the lamp's size to the furnishing's size does matter. Make sure that the furnishing on which the lamp is going to sit doesn't detract from the lamp itself.
