When looking for accessories like home lamps, selecting the style of lamp is one of the first choices one needs to make. The most basic categories of styles include Modern, Traditional, Contemporary, and Transitional. Related to these styles are a myriad of other more specific styles such as Modern 60's Retro, Traditional Georgian, and Contemporary Coastal to mention only a few. Below is a brief overview of these basic styles.
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.
Transitional lamps are a cross between traditional and a contemporary lamps. For example, something about a particular lamp reminds you of a Louis XIV style - but it definitely does not have all the qualities required to be a Louis XIV. It may have the shape of a Louis XIV or some other classical style - but the ornamentation and embellishment are not there. A transitional lamp may be inspired by a traditional lamp, but the design and detailing has been simplified. However, if it highly abstracted or pushed to the extreme - it is likely a Modern lamp design!
Imagine, if you will, a lamp that constructed of geometric squares made of glass positioned in an interesting geometric pattern allowing you to light either one or all three squares? The modernistic sculpture you see before you is a glass table lamp. There are also iron urn type of lights that have glass inset in them so that again, it can be used as a glass table lamp with a lit inside, or it also can be used as a gently lit a night light. In that case, you may use any kind of shade with it that fits your general decor.
