Table lamps fall under the category of task lighting. Their reach is limited to that of a side table or shelf. The brightness casted by a table lamp can be controlled by the shade used. Shades can be replaced as needed.
Do not be afraid to try out different styles for your new replacement lamp shade as there is no reason to be stuck with the same old traditional lamp shade. Try a different shape or size and see how that fits into your home.
Elegant shades graced table and floor lamps as well as crystal chandeliers imported from Europe. And the electric light bulb enabled fine work to be sewn at night usually under a parlor bridge lamp. Today the tradition of hand-sewn lamp shades continues and here are tips and sewing techniques from the experts. When buying or recovering a lamp shade today, keep the design of the lamp base in mind. Curved shades compliment curved lamps and angular shades normally work best with angular lamps. Shade frames are available for lamp bases with harps, bridge lamps, floor lamps with glass bowls, chandeliers, headboards, night-lights and more.
Shade frames can usually be recovered or new ones purchased. An antique frame is stripped, covered with rust-retardant and recovered. Over the years, a large variety of styles were designed. Interesting, all the frames have names. Since flowers played such an important role in the Victorian decorating scheme, many have names such as Tulip and Daffodil.
Preventing Damage: Ensure that the operating voltage of your plug in hanging lamp is in the recommended range. Very high voltages will overdrive your lighting system. Although it provides more brightness, it actually shortens the lamp's lifespan overall. Going overboard by even 1 volt can reduce the lifespan of your hanging ceiling lamp by half.
