Lamps are usually fitted with bulbs as source of light. Normally bulbs with lower wattage are used with the table lamps but these days bulbs with adjustable wattage are also used which facilitate you to increase or decrease the intensity of light according to your need. A brass lamp may be placed on the side table of your bedroom or on the table of your study room or home library. Almost all the lamps are decorated with bright colored lamp shades to give the room a different and an elegant look. These lamp shades also control the focusing of light.
The bridge lamp was made specifically for the purpose of being able to direct light EXACTLY where it is supposed to go and not necessarily to light an entire room. Back when these lamps were created, the homes of many of the people were built to have very high ceilings which caused a great light in the room from the ceiling light, but the light was distributed throughout the whole room which created shadows below it. If you were to sit in a chair to read or sit at a desk in order to do some work, the shadow of the person or anything else near the subject, would make the light very dim and not at all bright enough to help with what task was being performed.
A lamp for the dining room can be from 20 to 36 inches in height. Choose a lamp that is just the right height so it would not shine straightly on the diner's eyes. Place a lamp with slim base in the dining room so it will take only less space and leave enough room for food platters, tableware stacks and other stuffs. To provide a romantic glow in the room, you can use a lamp with metallic gold or nickel interior and opaque shade. Bulbs to be used in dining rooms are below 60 Watts; bulbs with silver tips can effectively reduce glare.
Antique table lamps are not just some old lamp, some are gorgeous. They are lamps that have a resemblance a whole different era, filled with life to our vision. They can be a very elegant piece to have in your home. Time and space can do nothing to curb the aura of their presence in our living rooms and bedrooms.
The light of the bridge lamp could be put by a chair or a desk and positioned so that the light would aim directly on the actual work or book that was being used. It was a very popular lamp for this purpose but also the antique bridge lamp became a favorite lamp to decorate the shade. With the shade hanging down, you were able to have a lot more freedom when it came to decorating.
