General Lamp / February 22, 2019 / Aadhya Kidd.
Contemporary table lamps are one of the first decorative items that people notice when entering a room or office. Though many people typically do not give more than a moment's notice to its impact on the room's environment, the right table lamp can cast the perfect effect on a room. If you have a room where you want to promote a feeling of tranquility, a carefully-selected table lamp can achieve this. If you have a game room where you want a lot of lamp-cast light to shine on various sports memorabilia on the walls, choosing the right table lamp can easily accomplish this.
Third, ask yourself if you can live with a particular lamp style over time. Some lamps are distinctive and may look interesting in a store. However, oddly-shaped or with protruding angles, some lamps' unique style can quickly wear out their welcome. Remember, you will see it every day. If you grow tired of looking at it, the lamp is likely not doing its job. Take the time to consider how you will feel about your lamp 5 years from now.
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.
But you will probably end up throwing these lamps away sooner or later. The material is brittle, hollow, fragile and it chips and breaks very easily. You will likely not be giving these lamps to your grand children, not even your children. This poly resin material reminds me of the chalk ware lamps from circa 1950. These lamps are rarely if ever found in one piece. They were cheap back then and they are usually worthless now.
