Contemporary lamps are a combination of the traditional and modern design aesthetic. The contemporary lamp favors the clean lines and minimal ornamentation of the modern lamps, but it utilises materials and methods that are more familiar. The contemporary lamp does not try to make a statement about cutting-edge technology or design the way that a modern one does.
There are mission inspired lamps that feature amber glass throughout the lamp, even the shade is made of amber glass, and often there is a light bulb within the base itself that allows for the entire lamp to be lit with a warm tan colored glow both within and without. The base as mentioned can be lit, thus often can be used as a nightlight.
For the living room, choose a lamp shade made of fabric or slightly opaque paper to provide warm glow in the room. If to be placed near a television, an opaque shade can be chosen to reduce glare. For a modern look, drum shades may be used and if traditional look is preferred, conical shades are recommended. For reading purposes, the lamp's bulb must be at least 60 Watts; a dimmer or three0way bulb can be used for modulating the brightness.
Another consideration will be how the lamp will be used. If you are choosing a floor lamp to add light to a corner where you will be doing a lot of reading, an arched lamp would be a better investment for this purpose than a clamp lamp might be. On the other hand, if you want a contemporary floor lamp to add ambiance to your dining room then you might want to choose a floor lamp such as a Sheffield floor lamp that gives off a soft glow rather than a bright light. Keep in mind that lighting can be used to create atmosphere as well as add light to darkened corner. Choosing a contemporary floor lamp like a Medusa lamp with several colorful shades can give the feel a large flower in an empty corner of a room and draw attention away from less attractive areas.
