Lampshades: For general purpose lighting, it is better to choose a lamp with a lampshade that has some degree of transparency such as a fabric, weave, or glass that is light in color. A semi-transparent lampshade gives a room a softer look. On the other hand, a lampshade that has little transparency will provide a stronger, more concentrated light pattern which can create a dramatic effect. A lampshade that has a wider brim at the bottom will spread the light out toward the bottom which is good for a reading lamp. Sculptural Qualities: In determining the lamp‘s sculptural qualities such as size, bulk, and color, the location and visual function of the lamp needs to be considered. Also, the table lamp should look good whether it is turned on or off.
One of the most enduringly popular of all of the types of antique lamps is the banker‘s lamp. A bankers lamp is normally constructed of a brass post with a green or blue glass shade. Today, the green shades are most common in reproduction lamps, but the blue shades were as common in the original type. Antique porch lamps, which are very popular with designers today, were originally used not on porches, but in carriages. Carriage lamps were mostly made of brass, wrought iron, or wood, and were mounted on the carriage doors or side walls. The sturdy construction and design of the carriage lamps makes them well suited to their modern use as porch lights. They are usually seen mounted on either side of a door.
