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.
The kind of bulb usually used for table lamps are 15 to 150 watts. For safety reasons, always follow the rules involving the bulbs used for the table lamps. Never ever use one that has a higher wattage than the one specified for your lamp. If you need a lamp to serve only as a decorative piece, you can use a low wattage lamp. But if you are intending to use it as a source of light, consider purchasing one that is able to accommodate three-way lighting in which you can make your light dimmer or lighter.
If you are in the market for unique new floor lamps but just do not know where to start, consider taking a gander at goose neck floor lamps. These floor lamps are traditionally crazy looking lamps that you put behind the sofa and the lamp comes up from the floor and then curves over the top of the sofa. And some of these lamps still are crazy looking, if that is the cool, 1980s bachelor pad look you want. But these lamps have come a long way in style since then and you can find one, two or a few that will go great with any room decor.
Mainly, table lamps come with detachable shades that can easily be changed. Light-colored shades are preferred if you want more light from your lamp for activity such as reading. On the other hand, darker color shades limits light output and is good when you want a subtle effect. Choose a style that will complement your decor. Also consider that a sleek, modern lamp might feel completely out of place. Try a more traditional design to align your lamp with your existing decor.
