Friday, September 08, 2006

Even before the invention of electricity or Edison's famous light bulb, lamps were lighting homes throughout the world. Of course, they usually burned some form of animal fat or oil, but they nonetheless produced light just as with modern lighting fixtures. One of the more versatile and best lighting fixtures to use when decorating your home is the common lamp. We have a great selection of lamps in all varieties from floor lamps to some of the more decorative hanging lamp lighting fixtures and are sure to have the lamps that will make your home a place to cherish.

Table lamps are very common and found in most homes in one form or another. They are usually used to create task lighting for things like reading or homework. However, table lamps with 3-way bulbs can be used for accent lighting in places like the bedroom when no other lights are on. Plus, when table lamps are made in the style and finish as the other lighting fixtures in your home, they become accent pieces that become part of the décor rather than just tools used to illuminate it. Whether you are looking for mission style table lamps or some of the more exotic Tiffany lamps, we are the place to shop when looking for quality lighting fixtures for the home or office.

During the 1980's and early 1990's, a lot of designers chose to use ceiling fan lights to produce the ambient lighting in the living room and other locations throughout the home. While there is certainly nothing wrong with this ceiling lighting option, a hanging lamp might prove a better choice when trying to find the lighting fixture best suited for complementing your décor. While light fixtures like the Tiffany hanging lamps may prove too exotic for a more contemporary interior design, a mission style hanging lamp might be the perfect way to accent your décor and not take away from the other design features in the room.
