Quite commonly, the first thing that comes to mind when people think of "antique style" table lamps is an old, rusty and dirty lamp from the 1920's. That couldn't be further from the truth as these "old school" lamps are becoming popular once again. In their own right, antique lamps are seen as classy and beautiful works of art that happen to be very practical at the same time. Older homes or homes designed with vintage aesthetics will work perfectly with these types of lamps. But of course that doesn't leave modern homes in the dark (no pun intended). You can feature antique lamps in modern homes but in this case, the lamp would need to be carefully hand picked; The lamp has to work well with the other furniture and the color scheme of the bedroom. Some of the popular types of antique table lamps for bedroom decoration include Japanese, Chinese, English and French styles, with each style dating back to early 19th and 18th centuries. The biggest characteristic of these lamps are that they convey the history and culture of where they came from, which adds personality and elegance to the bedroom.
If you will separate them in terms of their design will be easy just by looking at them. But lamp shades may also be differentiated depending on how they light a specific room. For instance, task lighting can be made by a clear glass globe which will let almost the whole light pass through. On the other end, ambient lighting will prove to add more mood rather than brightness. Accordion lanterns made of colorful mulberry paper that generally cast a pinkish glow, on the other hand, will create peaceful surroundings.
If you're going to use your lamp mainly for reading, you would want a fairly sheer lampshade that doesn't trap light. A thin-fabric lampshade should do. As a general rule of thumb for reading and table lamps, you will want the lampshade to be just over half the height of the base. If the lamp is going to be set on the floor and let off more light, a lampshade that's only one-fourth the base's height would be better.
Lamps are commonly utilized for enhancing the aesthetic appeal of a room. You should first consider the room for which you need lamps. Try to opt for lamps that match well with the color theme and the furnishings of the room. Determine the light strength that you require while choosing lamps. Decide whether you need it for functional lighting or just for simple accent lighting. According to your purpose, you can select either table lamps, or desk lamps or other varieties. This is not all, as you should also notice the material of the lamp you are buying. You can choose from among material options like glass, crystal, metal or wood.
