A light fixture or a lamp is an electrical device used to give off illumination or artificial light. Lamps are indispensable in our lives. So, it is not surprising to find various types of lamps in stores, homes, streets, offices, and different establishments. Everywhere you look, you will see lamps. Incandescent lamps, for instance, are one of the many types of lamps you see on a daily basis. Actually, these are among the most common and oldest lamps. They use incandescent light bulbs; that is why they are cheaper compared to other kinds. In addition, they produce adequate lighting which is not too dim or too glaring. However, these lights are not very efficient when it comes to electricity-light conversion. Most of the energies are converted to heat. Hence, there are more costs and cooling problems in places with warm climates.
Contemporary lamps come in various types such as table lamps, desk lamps, floor lamps, shaded, and chandeliers. Also available are ceiling lamps, hanging lamps, pendant lamps, and wall sconces. Contemporary lamps are distinguished by their sleek designs and colorful appearance. They are made of various materials with varied finishes including steel, brass, and wrought iron. The look of these lamps typically conveys the current fashion and style, not occupying much space and yet lending a simple and trendy appeal. They come in attractive colors, designs, and textures with distinctive ornamentation and colorful embroidery.
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.
