Traditional lamps are reproductions or reinterpretations of lamps that express a strong historical perspective from the pre-industrial designs of Europe or Asia usually. These lamps often provide elaborate ornamentation that require highly skilled artisans and craftsmen. For example, the lamp may have a beautiful, intricate gold filigree design or the lampshade may have a bell shape with a double edged scallop design - and maybe some tassels or fringe.
Modern lamps usually have clean lines and little or very subtle adornment - a case where "less is more." A modern lamp may use materials in a new way or use materials not typically associated with lamps. You may see a new industrial materials or finishes show up in a modern design. They may present a new way of thinking about what home lamps should look like and function. Modern lamps push the design envelope - and one may experience the "shock of the new".
Needless to say, sometimes you cannot suffice for quality lamps. Finding a good lamp supplier at a decent price can be troublesome. Large Designer, hand made floor lamps (standard floor lamps are around 150 centimetres tall) can cost upwards of $400 (AUD) so its important to choose the right lights, that will last. Handmade lamps and lighting are starting to become rare, being replaced by often inferior machine or factory made items which unfortunately have lost that unique touch that really adds to a rooms feel. Thankfully in Australia our close proximity allows decent import prices for Lamps and Lighting from South East Asia. There are many online lighting retailers that offer great discounts compared to local home wares stores. Lamps and Lighting Australia is one such website that offers an interesting range of hand crafted designer lamps. Hunt around and find a good importer or manufacturer of lighting in your area and go for the quality items that will compliment your space.
