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.
One of the first things you will need to consider when purchasing a contemporary lamp is the room in which the lamp will be placed. Obviously, your choice for a child's playroom lamp will different from the lamp you choose for your modern living room, or your formal dining room. The decor of the rooms you use contemporary ones will in some ways limit your choice of the lamps you choose. A chrome and glass lamp will look out of place in a Victorian living or bedroom. So make sure that the lamp you choose fits the room in which it will be placed.
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.
