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.
You can get a table lamp in any size, style and shape. That is why there is a wide range to choose from. You can choose any table lamp which best suits your place whether you want it for bed side or as reading lamps. There are different types of lamps available like Tiffany Lamps, Mica lamps, Country lamps, Crystal Lamps, Hand painted table lamps, Traditional style lamps, etc. The task of all these lamps is lighting the place where it is installed.
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.
