Traditional Table Lamps


Visitors: 184

If you prefer a simple yet elegantly designed room, traditional table lamps are your best choice for accessories. These lamps emit dim, soft and even sensual light, making the ambiance more relaxed and romantic.

Traditional table lamps are available in different styles and designs. One of the most popular traditional table lamp designs features antique bronze and ivory cackle finish on metal resin, and have shades made of silk. Other popular table lamps are those finished in vintage brass, antique gold, marble and wood. Sizes vary and bulbs used are typically 3-way, with 150 wattage. Prices will depend on the finish of the product.

Many people also like a vintage brass finish on traditional table lamps. This kind of texture goes very well with a soft semi-transparent shade, preferably in muted colors that do not take attention away from the beautiful brass. Some people also go for traditional table lamps that are whitewashed. You can add a hardback linen shade with trim to add character.

And of course, there are traditional resin lamps with a rust finish and a dark copper tone. Like wooden traditional lamps, they work well with contemporary wicker shades.

Traditional lamps can cost anywhere from about $90 to $150 on average, depending on the designer and the materials used. The more intricate the design (if the wood is hand-carved or if there are complex etchings on the metal, for example), the higher the price.

Make sure the design of the table lamp will jive with the rest of the things inside your room. Designers these days advise people to refrain from putting matching lamps on two bedside tables. Try putting two absolutely contrasting traditional table lamps instead – it will give your room more character and make it look less formal.
