The more ornate the lamp, the simpler the shade should be and vice versa. Pleated shades look more traditional while flat shades work with almost any decor. However, pleated shades are hard to keep dusted, so smooth shades are an optimum choice.
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.
During the process of searching for modern lamps, you may want to give some extra thought to energy efficient units. For example, there are dozens of lamps emerging that run on solar power. While these lamps are still fairly limited in design, you may soon see more appealing models emerging. As may be expected, if you are mechanically inclined, you can always take parts from a solar lamp, and then combine then with the body from a conventional lamp in order to get the best of both lamps.
