General Lamp / January 23, 2019 / Aadhya Kidd.
Choosing the right lamp for your home requires deliberation and knowledge about available options and features. Given the availability of various types of lamps and lighting options such as floor lamps, table lamps, down lighters, recessed lighting, reading lamps, wall lamps, hanging lamps, and chandeliers to name a few, this becomes even more important.
It is important to recognize that proper lighting is essential when playing, practicing, or performing at the piano. It is for this reason that House of Troy makes an entire line of lamps that are specially designed for use on pianos. These lamps allow flexibility in directing the light exactly where you need it, on the music and the piano keys, and have a whole list of other features that make them perfect for use on pianos.
Second, ask yourself where you plan to use the lamp. If you plan to light a big room with an undecorated wall, a small lamp may feel unnecessarily tiny. A tall lamp may be more appropriate. Of course, if you would like to place a lamp on top of a bookcase in your study, a small lamp may work perfectly.
So you have decided to purchase a lamp. There are numerous design questions to consider such as height, girth, color, style, function and of course price. But have you seriously considered searching exclusively for a vintage lamp ? Probably not. Our entire culture is so strongly influenced by advertising of mass produced products including lamps, that we are programmed to think only in terms of what has been presented by the mass merchants.
