Form refers to the sheer aesthetics of a lamp whereas function refers to how much illumination the lamp actually lends to a space. Lamps, of course, vary in size, shape and style. The first step in selecting the perfect lamp for any room is making sure that the sheer size of the lamp matches the contours and dimensions of the room's interior.
Wrought iron lamp's body style is consists of iron parts that was carefully made, offering beautiful and distinct looks while giving good quality of light. Wrought irons can come in infinite designs as they can be bent, formed and wielded to make a distinct look for each lamp. This kind of lamp design is best to fit with light color background setting like cream, pearl white and tan. Wrought iron lamps are less costly compared with the tiffany table lamps.
Perfect lighting along with functionality and practicality are usually the most important features of a bedroom lamp for readers. The best lamps that cater to these needs are 'swing arm' lamps because they're built to allow the lamp head to move independently of the main body stand. While they can be used for reading purposes, they are perfectly suitable for many other tasks at night while in bed. For example, you can use it for writing on a notepad or knitting an article of clothing. The swing arm component of these type of lamps make it easy to spot the difference between them and the regular lamps. The swing arm component often have two horizontal bars (attached with a hinge) sticking from the lamp. This allows it to swing 360 degrees and to reach out to a certain length (depending on the lamps design).
Style and design will likely be the key factors for those who are looking to purchase lamps solely for the purpose of decorating their bedroom. Obviously, there are many styles of lamps out there and it's almost impossible to pinpoint which style (let alone lamp) is most suitable for you, your sense of style and the look of your bedroom. Despite what one's personal sense of style may be, the quality of the lamp is another important factor to consider when decorating. Obviously, the better the quality the more expensive it becomes so it's important to have the perfect balance between the two. To give the room a sense of warmth and elegance, I suggest looking at lamps with a nice bronze finish. They are often what vintage and antique lamps are made out of. For the more modern rooms, I recommended looking for ceramic lamps (sometimes made out of ivory also) as they are more than perfect that style of bedroom. Asian-inspired lamps (e.g Chinese and Japanese) are quickly becoming popular styles as they provide a real sense of culture and history. These lamps consist of an inner steel frames that gives the lamp shade a distinct Asian-style look.
To avoid buyer's remorse you'll want to measure the square footage of the room before heading off to the store to make your purchase. You'll also want to consider where you'll be placing the lamp and the dimensions of any surfaces the lamp will be resting on.
