Antique lamps include candle lamps, gas chandeliers, solar, astral, sconces, sinumbra oil lamps, kerosene lamps, piano lamps, banquet lamps and even electric lamps. These lamps also include the Victorian and American designed art-glass lamps and the various lighting devices. Antique lamps are bought for their designs and patterns. People collect antique lamps to enrich their collection. Some of these lamps are even sold to museums, depending on their historical value and exquisite periodic designs. They appeal to art collectors, either for their private collections or contribution to museums.
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".
Lights or shades that are coloured can portray a different colour or feel as the light shines through the coloured material, consider this when looking at items. Bulbs are equally important as they often come in a warm yellow light or a brighter white light. White light is generally used when bright viewing conditions are required, and the warmer yellow light is often used as a back light such as a lamp in the rear corner of a TV room. Contrasting the yellow and white bulbs can look awkward so one needs to be careful of this as well.
