General Lamp / January 25, 2019 / Aadhya Kidd.
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.
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.
Lamp shades which can come in various styles ranging from time honored Tiffany to Mica to modern. You can assume these styles by changing their patterns, colors, and materials. Type of bulbs whether they be incandescent, fluorescent, or LED, can also have an effect on the lamps' brightness, color, size and the energy consumption. You should also pay attention to the stands, and brackets in order get the best out of your lamps decoration wise.
Aesthetically this has huge repercussions because we all end up owning the same home decor items and nothing is exclusive or unique. You end up buying the same lamp that your neighbor bought, that his neighbor bought and so forth.
