With a wide variety of lights to set a particular mood, it would be easy for any casual buyer to just pick one out, only for the sake of having a nigh lamp at their side. To set a mood requires having a bit of a keen eye on which design suits best for the bedroom, and not something that stands out like a sore thumb.
Table lamps have been around for over 70 years or more, allowing an easy access for those night owls or light sleepers who find themselves awake in the middle of the night. With the number of bedroom lighting designs to choose from, most of them have stemmed from Oriental and European origins. Of course, American design also has a big impact when it comes to more contemporary design, mixing both contemporary and classic together to create a new image for bedroom lighting design. And this also includes the all-time classic lava lamp, which still captures the young at heart.
Sconces and pin-lights add more vibrancy when it comes to lighting dark corners and rooms with cooler shades in wallpapers. For most, a classic brass-wrought sconce would be hard to find except in antique stores, while newer ones are available at most home décor stores and shops nationwide. It's a perfect way to set the mood especially when it's connected to a dimmer switch and would not be too bright during the night.
Overhead lamps are also a part of bedroom lighting design, though not a lot of homes may have that, unless it's a chandelier. Some of the best designs are from Europe, having a more Asian influence when it comes to materials using pattered paper for the shade, while the body itself would have made some natural materials such as bamboo, glass and wood.
Floor lamps give a more visible approach, and with current styles rear towards a modern look. Although the traditional design would use a polished or stainless steel shaft, there has been a stir of creativity as they use an assortment of materials ranging from wood, plastic and even artfully made using only thin pieces of wire that have been woven. Asian influence is also behind the design, as more natural patters on the paper shade would make the bedroom even warmer, given to the number of special fluorescent bulbs that gives a much cooler light to the eyes.
