LOW PRESSURE SODIUM (SOX) - Low pressure sodium lamps, more commonly known as SOX lamps, have the highest efficiency of all discharge lamps. Light provided is monochromatic orangeyellow, meaning they have poor color rendering and most objects appear as various shades of grey. The primary use for SOX lamps is in street lighting.
Here is a real life story that happened just this very week. A very nice interior designer from Gastonia who specializes in fine high design home decor came into my lamp shop here in Lincolnton, North Carolina. She was looking for a unique and special lamp for one of her clients. After visiting with us and looking around for some time, she found a 1 of a kind cast metal and onyx lamp which we had designed and made here.
Now there are different types and styles of table lamps that you can choose from. For example Tiffany lamps differ from other lamps by the type of shade it has. You can even break Tiffany lamps into further styles - Victorian and Mission. Mica table lamps also are becoming more popular with the fascinating way they give off light. Wrought iron lamps with their various designs and distinct looks are another choice.
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.
