While antique style lamps are considered works of art with lots of practicality, the same can be said about a number of modern style lamps out there. Modern style lamps are available everywhere (especially online) but you have to look in the right place for the best ones. Antique lamps may be classy and vintage but modern lamps have developed into very unique works of art and engineering. The design aesthetics can be quite unorthodox yet simple. And the functions and technology that go with it have advanced greatly for ease of use. Whether they're custom-made and manufactured, modern style table lamps have incorporated the use of new materials and new technology. Some of the innovations include the use of different glass materials, metal surfaces and other materials that gives them a unique look. With the inclusion of new technology, they can be leaps and bounds ahead of traditional and antique style lamps in terms of practicality. An example of this is the simple kinesthetic touch technology used in some lamps where a person can simply turn it on and off by tapping anywhere on it's body.
There are two main types of lamps - table lamps and floor lamps. Based on which room the lamp will be placed, people need to consider size, style, and brightness of a lamp. Many people will buy lamps without measuring the area it will go into. Buyers need to take measurements first without depending on their skills at eyeballing measurements.
For table lamps, people need to measure the table height and circumference. The lamp should not be more than one and a half times the height of the furnishing it sits on and the lampshade should not overlap the table. Consider the weight of the lamp. Lighter is better for less-travelled spots while heavier and stable is better for high traffic areas and small children.
Another consideration will be how the lamp will be used. If you are choosing a floor lamp to add light to a corner where you will be doing a lot of reading, an arched lamp would be a better investment for this purpose than a clamp lamp might be. On the other hand, if you want a contemporary floor lamp to add ambiance to your dining room then you might want to choose a floor lamp such as a Sheffield floor lamp that gives off a soft glow rather than a bright light. Keep in mind that lighting can be used to create atmosphere as well as add light to darkened corner. Choosing a contemporary floor lamp like a Medusa lamp with several colorful shades can give the feel a large flower in an empty corner of a room and draw attention away from less attractive areas.
