Quite commonly, the first thing that comes to mind when people think of "antique style" table lamps is an old, rusty and dirty lamp from the 1920's. That couldn't be further from the truth as these "old school" lamps are becoming popular once again. In their own right, antique lamps are seen as classy and beautiful works of art that happen to be very practical at the same time. Older homes or homes designed with vintage aesthetics will work perfectly with these types of lamps. But of course that doesn't leave modern homes in the dark (no pun intended). You can feature antique lamps in modern homes but in this case, the lamp would need to be carefully hand picked; The lamp has to work well with the other furniture and the color scheme of the bedroom. Some of the popular types of antique table lamps for bedroom decoration include Japanese, Chinese, English and French styles, with each style dating back to early 19th and 18th centuries. The biggest characteristic of these lamps are that they convey the history and culture of where they came from, which adds personality and elegance to the bedroom.
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.
Lamps have been around for thousands of years. From rudimentary copper bowls that use simple wicker sticks and oil to the wide range of contemporary light sources, floor lamps have undergone different stages of technical and aesthetic evolution.
For a floor lamp, make sure to measure the height of the space it will go in to and the maximum circumference the lamp can extend without interfering with other furniture or people. The circumference will be most useful when looking at the lamp shade. It also has to be near an outlet.
