I have vivid memories of a bright orange colored lamp shade on a wooden lamp stand that took pride of place in our lounge for many years. However items like a desk lamp, a bedside lamp or a glass lamp shade never really became a big part of our home furnishings. Mum would shop for many things but exotic lighting with brightly colored lamp shades rarely made it onto her shopping list.

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.

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.

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.

If you know that your lamp is setting on a table or desk that isn't going to get jostled in the near future, then you could safely go with a more decorative or lighter weight lamp. Also, the ratio of the lamp's size to the furnishing's size does matter. Make sure that the furnishing on which the lamp is going to sit doesn't detract from the lamp itself.

Among modern lamp styles, materials like embossed porcelain or crystal can lend a fancy look to your space whereas having a lamp with a wood or polished metal base can add charm and texture to virtually any room. You will want to ensure that the texture and color of your lamp's base doesn't jar with the furnishing on which it's resting.

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.
