If you prefer another style of antique lamp, try an antique piano lamp. They can be clipped onto things like a desk and used as a reading lamp or they can light up a framed picture on a shelf or the fireplace mantel. Piano lamps can be used in the hallway or in the kitchen. The style permits antique piano lamps to be a part of just about any room of your house.
A lamp for the dining room can be from 20 to 36 inches in height. Choose a lamp that is just the right height so it would not shine straightly on the diner's eyes. Place a lamp with slim base in the dining room so it will take only less space and leave enough room for food platters, tableware stacks and other stuffs. To provide a romantic glow in the room, you can use a lamp with metallic gold or nickel interior and opaque shade. Bulbs to be used in dining rooms are below 60 Watts; bulbs with silver tips can effectively reduce glare.
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.
When deciding on brightness, people need to figure out what the primary purpose of the lamp will be. This could be mood lighting, reading, decoration, or safety. For decorative lighting, an opaque fabric shade can be chosen. It illuminates the space from ceiling to floor. For reading and other tasks, a translucent lampshade will diffuse light. High quality paper or fabric shades are ideal.
