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.
A lamp's maximum wattage is also important. Typically, a reading lamp should be 150 watts or more. Safety is also a prime concern. Ensure that the bottom edge of the shade hides the lamp's bulb socket when the lamp is seen a few feet away. This will reduce the potential for glare.
Small lamp shades are needed for the bedroom. Metal shades may be good for reading but can project coldness in a bedroom so the most probably choices are paper and fabric shades. Choose a fixture with a cluster of two bulbs so different wattage may be used. When reading you can use the brighter bulb and when sleeping or relaxing, the dimmer bulb is to be used.
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.
