More on the function side of things, you will want to ask the following question before installing any lamp - what's the purpose? Are you planning to use this lamp to heighten your decor? For reading? If your goal is to find the best reading lamp for your space, illuminating the entire room or sending light up to the ceiling probably won't be important.
Now, many of us are familiar with the basic type of lamp shade that stretches its material between the top and bottom cable circles of different diameters. This particular shape may be known as a drum, coolie, or empire, depending on the sizing ratio and the size of each element. Hardback shades have an exterior layer of fabric that is folded but nonetheless with an interior of plastic that will permit the light to filter through. However a more expensive one which is completely made of fabric is really a silk lamp.
Clear lamp bases have less visual weight. Wood and iron bases provide texture and richness. Crystal adds glamour to a room while painted porcelain will create a luxurious Old World feel. Moroccan lanterns have an exotic and international feel which coordinates well with most decor.
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.
