When deciding on brightness, people need to figure out what the primary purpose of the lamp will be. This could be mood lighting, reading, decoration, or safety. For decorative lighting, an opaque fabric shade can be chosen. It illuminates the space from ceiling to floor. For reading and other tasks, a translucent lampshade will diffuse light. High quality paper or fabric shades are ideal.
However when you use unusual materials you will also create different types, sometimes unusual also, of lamp shades, this is particularly true if you choose to possess unique lamps. For example, wall-mounted sconces might be shaded with a punched tin rectangle that will create dazzling designs of light on the reverse wall. Library table lamps, on the other hand, could truly use classical green lamp shades, whilst delicate, handmade lamp shades may cover small, metal lumps.
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.
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.
