Lamps have been an integral part of households from the beginning. Over the course of time, the use of lamps have not just been limited to lighting up the interiors of the house but also have a significant contribution in enhancing the décor of the rooms. Lamps have been one of the most important focal points in arresting the attention of the guests, by their intricate designs and patterns. The lighting materials have also evolved with time, from candles to gas and now electricity. However, there have always been certain unique features attached with every period, reflecting the typical life style of people and the use of lamps. Antique lamps are those, which have gone through the test of time and remind us of the bygone days. These lamps are highly valued and in demand for their vintage appeal.
You may also find that you want to purchase modern lamps that replicate older designs. This may include lamps that mimic the Victorian age, or ones that were commonly used out west. Some people also find lamps that mimic everyday objects interesting. For example, you may want a special lamp that features a train engine, or even a caboose. No matter which modern lamps you choose to buy, you can have peace of mind knowing that they will feature electric sockets instead of making use of oil or kerosene.
For the living room, choose a lamp shade made of fabric or slightly opaque paper to provide warm glow in the room. If to be placed near a television, an opaque shade can be chosen to reduce glare. For a modern look, drum shades may be used and if traditional look is preferred, conical shades are recommended. For reading purposes, the lamp's bulb must be at least 60 Watts; a dimmer or three0way bulb can be used for modulating the brightness.
