Home lamps can be a great way to accessorize your home and provide lighting at the same time. The physical appearance of the lamp, the type of light the lamp casts, and where the light is cast, all contribute in creating the room's ambiance. There are many different types of lamps for the home, such as: Table Lamps, Bedside Table Lamps, Buffet Table Lamps, Desk Lamps, Floor Lamps, and Accent Lamps. Regardless of the type, when choosing a lamp, keep in mind location, style, and type of lighting needed.
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.
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.
