Different Types of Lamps - The following advice has largely dealt with table lamps but what if you want to install a hanging lamp or chandelier say in your dining room? Make sure that whichever style you select the lamp itself hangs two feet or more above your dining room table or other surface. The last thing you want is your guests to be distracted by a bright beacon during dinner.
For those who loved colored glass Tiffany lamps are a perfect lighting choice. The original Tiffany lamps were designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and he loved some of the beautiful rich tones that were often used in mosaics in Byzantium. He worked to take these colors and add them to the glass instead of painting the glass. These lamps are actually made from beautiful stained glass that is hand cut. Each piece of the stained glass gets a piece of copper foil wrapped around it then it is glued together and lead is used to solder the different pieces of glass together. There are often seeds lines and bubbles that occur in the glass which actually add to the natural beauty of this special type of glass used for these lamps.
With their resurgence of popularity it is very difficult to find an authentic Tiffany lamp. Some original Tiffany lamps have commanded prices in the millions of dollars for a single lamp.
If you are looking for a great way that you can light up a room in your home then you may want to consider tiffany hanging lamps such as the Tiffany apple hanging lamps.

More on the function side of things you will want to ask the following question before installing any lamp - what’s the purpose? Are you planning to use this lamp to heighten your decor? For reading? If your goal is to find the best reading lamp for your space illuminating the entire room or sending light up to the ceiling probably won’t be important.
If you know that your lamp is setting on a table or desk that isn’t going to get jostled in the near future then you could safely go with a more decorative or lighter weight lamp. Also the ratio of the lamp’s size to the furnishing’s size does matter. Make sure that the furnishing on which the lamp is going to sit doesn’t detract from the lamp itself.
