Table Lamps. Friday , January 12th , 2018 - 17:38:46 PM
Back in the early part of the 20th century the time and effort put into their manufacture was probably more dedicated than nowadays. The ones we can buy now were surely manufactured to last. Contemporary lamps do not seem to be anything like as ornate and do not have the same intricate decorations as the vintage ones. Today`s models seem to be much simpler in design.
Anything between 20 and 80 years seems to be the common consensus as to the meaning of vintage for a table lamp. If they were made longer ago than that, antique seems to be the description for them. It does not seem to be defined as a particular era but changes as time passes.
Now that you have found lamps that are both functional and coordinate with your other fixtures, it is time to select the perfect fixture for setting a romantic mood. To this end, the shade is positively vital. The idea is to gently diffuse the light coming from the lamp without going too far and leaving the room in shadows. Therefore, try to stay away from white shades as they tend to allow too much light through and may very well blind your lover at some critical moment! By the same token, do not "go Goth" and bring back a fixture with some black lamp shade which may very well depress both of you into some deep coma from which you may never awake!
