The more ornate the lamp, the simpler the shade should be and vice versa. Pleated shades look more traditional while flat shades work with almost any decor. However, pleated shades are hard to keep dusted, so smooth shades are an optimum choice.
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.
The job of a lampshade is to complement the lamp. Rounder lamps require rounded shapes, such as drum, oval, empire, coolie, and bell. For squarer bases, shades need to be more angular, such as square, rectangular, hexagon, and pagoda.
