Antique Lamps can be found with various antique dealers and are sold in either 'restored' or 'as found' condition. The lamps are restored by polishing, burnishing or replacing some parts and not by interfering with their vintage value. Catalogs of the antique lamps in stores can be found online with the complete description and historical significance. Prices depend on the vintage value and rarity of the design and art- work on the lamp.
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.
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.
