Despite the implication of their name, however, antique art deco lamps are not antiques, or more than a hundred years old, yet. They can though be considered vintage, which means that they are older than fifty years, since the earliest antique lamps came out in the 1920s. However, they are already being sought out by antique collectors, mainly due to the thought that in a few years time they will already become antiques, thus boosting their value and potential profits made from reselling.
Conical, cylindrical and other forms on floor-, desk-, or table top-mounted along with suspended lamp designs tend to be the most common lamp globes and therefore are made in a wide array of materials. There are many different types of lampshades that you will see times that you will feel truly overwhelmed with the prospect of actually choosing a table lampshade, a floor, or a ceiling one. You can even generate lamp shades out of any useful material, like nut shells, paper that you can manually make, stained glass, or metal ribbon and form it right into a extremely practical lamp shade with shapes like a bell, curl, or even a drum. However, if you don't have the luxury of the time, try considering the following information and choose wisely for your own.
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.
For instance, as a general rule of thumb it's better to have bulky lamps in areas that receive high-traffic or have kids and pets running around. This is because the heavier the lamp the less prone it is to topple over and smash into a million pieces.
