A lamp globe, or even a lamp shade in a more common term, is a fixture that covers the bulb on a lamp to diffuse the lighting that it gives off or to block it in certain directions so it does not cause glare by shining straight in one's eyes.
Perfect lighting along with functionality and practicality are usually the most important features of a bedroom lamp for readers. The best lamps that cater to these needs are 'swing arm' lamps because they're built to allow the lamp head to move independently of the main body stand. While they can be used for reading purposes, they are perfectly suitable for many other tasks at night while in bed. For example, you can use it for writing on a notepad or knitting an article of clothing. The swing arm component of these type of lamps make it easy to spot the difference between them and the regular lamps. The swing arm component often have two horizontal bars (attached with a hinge) sticking from the lamp. This allows it to swing 360 degrees and to reach out to a certain length (depending on the lamps design).
Antique art deco lamps are based on designs depicting different dated periods. Art Deco antique lamps for example are based on the refinement of the Rococo period that took place in Europe during the 18th century, using hand blown Italian glass, and pieces of them are often used as table lamps and floor lamps. More modern style Art deco lamps feature sleeker designs that have been the basis of the design of modern day buildings such as the Empire State building.
Prior to buying a lamp whether it is desk lamps or table lamps, you should think about the functionality of the lamps. In most of the cases, people overlook or ignore the usage of energy while selecting lamps for their home. If you buy lamps with high wattage, then you will have to bear the burden on huge electricity bills. Nowadays, you can also find lamps that come with an adjustable wattage. Some of the other points that you should bear in mind is that oversized shades can provide diffused and a wider glow, whereas swing arm lamps are suitable for reading. Keep an eye on the price tag as well.
