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.
When using the lamps remember that you are dealing with electricity; therefore, you should exercise caution. To protect the lampshade from getting burnt ensure that the lampshade is a good distance from the light bulb. Also, ensure that the switch isn't in contact with the bulb. The shape of the lamp is of great importance. For a great look ensure that the shape compliments the look of your house.
Lamps are one of my favourite furnishings around my house and have been for many years. When I was a young boy my parents were not wealthy and struggled to provide for our family needs. Basic lighting was all our family had and we didn't give much thought to ambient lighting and we certainly never contemplated exotic topics like how to clean your lamp shades! No we just had a bare globe in each room and that was sufficient.
Lamps not only light up your room, they also add to your home décor. For your house to look great you need to install the right lamps. Here is a guide to the types of lamps that you should install in the different rooms of your house.
