Right from the beginning of civilization, lamps and lights have played a significant role when it came to household affairs. With the advent of time, lamps have undergone a sea change in their designing patterns and use. Lamps have traveled a long way in beyond just their utility and contributed significantly in adorning the ambience of the room and reflecting individual taste of beauty and perception. Just as all the other decorative products, lamps have also represented the time and taste of the periods in which they were made. Thus, contemporary lamps also reflect the taste and trends of the present age and generations.
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.
In addition to ensuring that lamp compliments the look of your house, you also need to consider other factors. One of the factors to consider is the color of the base and broad shade. The two should have the same color or be of complimentary colors.
