Arc lamp. The arc lamp is composed of a weighted stand extending towards an arm that is shaped like an arc. Given such configuration, lamplight is usually radiating downwards, making the arc lamp perfect for places where reading or table lamps cannot be placed or installed easily. Because it has a unique shape, table lamps are also popular in both transitional and contemporary interiors.
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.
Many interior decorators and home design stores compare lamps to pieces of jewelry - in terms of a room's decor lamps aren't the main attraction, yet they can pull together or pull apart what you're trying to achieve. The key to finding the right lamp for any room is looking for that special piece that combines both form and function.
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.
