Lamps are one of my favourite furnishings around my house and have been for many years. When I was a young boy my parents were not wealthy and struggled to provide for our family needs. Basic lighting was all our family had and we didn't give much thought to ambient lighting and we certainly never contemplated exotic topics like how to clean your lamp shades! No we just had a bare globe in each room and that was sufficient.
The following advice has largely dealt with table lamps but what if you want to install a hanging lamp or chandelier, say, in your dining room? Make sure that, whichever style you select, the lamp itself hangs two feet or more above your dining room table or other surface. The last thing you want is your guests to be distracted by a bright beacon during dinner.
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.
