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.
Another thing I love about lamps is the ambience they naturally produce with their soft, indirect light. I find it relaxing, especially in my study. I spend a far degree of my working life in my study which often includes early mornings and late nights. I find the ambient light of my stylish floor lamp much preferable to the bright ceiling light that seems to overpower me with its direct and piercing brightness.
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.
