An antique table lamp is an investment and can last you really long if you take proper care of it. You can also pass on these lamps to your next generation as a part of your family tradition. Original antique lamps are masterpieces and hold great value because of their uniqueness and exclusivity. The weekly routine that you adopt to clean your antique lamp can be simple and quick. All you have to do is make sure that the lamp is not in use( unplug from the wall socket), dust the upper part of the lamp with a duster and wipe the base and middle area of the antique table light with a soft cloth. If you feel like using a mild polish, you can do that too. Be careful, that you don't overdo as doing this could damage the lamp.
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.
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!
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.
