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.
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.
If the room has table surfaces that are sufficiently large, the table lamp may be the best choice. Of course, the lamp should not block a view - so coffee tables are typically not the best surface choice. In areas where the horizontal surfaces are narrow such as a buffet table, then the smaller buffet table lamps are usually the best. A narrow and tall lamp such as a candlestick lamp, works well on a narrow surfaces.
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.
