About the Baroque Decor Period
The Baroque decor style spanned from the late sixteenth century all the way into the early eighteenth century. As a style encouraged by the Catholic Church, the Baroque period was intended to impress others and express boastful power and control. The Baroque period was full of elaborate and extravagant decoration in order to theatrically flaunt wealth.
Please Note: We make every effort to ensure colors are represented accurately online. However, due the nature in which these lamps are crafted, slight color variations in stained glass are normal and help to make each lamp beautifully unique. Also, the appearance of the colors in the shade will be dependant on the lighting in the room. Cloth shades with a pattern may vary because of how the fabric is cut.
A good lighting scheme is arguably the most important aspect of decorating and the most powerful way to define a room’s ambiance. Choosing the right types of lighting requires knowing a little something about the different purposes lighting can serve, the types of lamps and shades available, what some technical terms mean, and how to tailor a lighting scheme to your specific room and needs.
Table lamps are perhaps the most common type of lamp used today. They generally range in height from 25” to 32”, and they often serve double roles as task lighting and accent lighting. Because of this, most people choose to use medium-watt, soft-light bulbs in their table lamps. When choosing a table lamp, the shade needs to be in proportion to the lamp's base, as well as with the surrounding furniture. The shade should be at eye level when you're seated, and the bulb should not be visible. Generally speaking, shorter lamps should be placed on taller tables, and taller lamps should be placed on shorter tables. This will help keep everything in room balanced and at eye level.
Types of lighting: Lighting falls into three categories: ambient, task and accent lighting. Well-lit rooms feature a combination of the three, allowing you to be comfortable without squinting or straining your eyes. The number and types of fixtures will vary with your room sizes, décor and personal preferences.
You have the perfect lamp and you've carefully chosen a shade for it, but what kind of light bulb should you choose? You may not think much about light bulbs, but the kind you choose has the greatest impact on the overall effect and effectiveness of your lamp. Many people make the mistake of buying a light bulb more powerful than they need for a particular lamp. This unfortunately can make a lamp so intense or distracting that it is rarely used. The simple solution to this problem is to use a smaller bulb. Most table and accent lamps require no more than a 60-watt bulb, even if they are rated for something much higher. While it's very important to never exceed the recommended bulb wattage for a lamp, there is nothing wrong with using a less-powerful bulb.
Aside from wattage, there are other factors to consider when choosing a light bulb. Light bulbs come in four basic types: incandescent, fluorescent, compact fluorescent and halogen.
