During the Victorian era lighting was primarily from gas. But with Edison's improved design of the incandescent light bulb in 1879, electric lighting began replacing gas lighting in Victorian homes. This change became the catalyst for a variety of lamp shades made to shield the glaring light bulbs.
In Jackson Hole, WY the town's square is embellished with arches created from Elk antlers. It is certainly unique and you can create the same spirit with antler lamps. Small lamps are created from whitetail deer antlers while large light fixtures such as chandeliers may have tiers of elk antlers with rawhide lampshades. One of the most popular lamps is created with moose antlers, recognizable with their beautiful dark palms and dark rawhide lamp shades.
The Moroccan henna leather lamps are made by professional artisans who have been doing it for centuries and the skill gets passed on from one generation to another. This is the exact reason why these lamps are unique. The best part is that no two henna lamps will have the same design. The lamps are made from goatskin with each section being hand-tied to a frame and finally the henna is applied for creating beautiful designs on the leather. Since so much effort goes into making a single henna lamp hence it is like a piece of treasure and owning one means that you belong to the elite class of people. It will become an integral part of your interior decoration.
Using the replacement lamp shade that you fall in love with is a great way to start giving your room a whole new feel to it. You never know what you will end up with when you start looking at all of your different options.
Another important thing that will determine how good or bad your lamp looks is the kind of bulb you use in your floor lamp. While the brightness or dimness of the bulb should be based on the amount of area that you want your floor lamp to light and the purpose for which you need the light, it is important to note that the bulb should be dim enough for the lamp not to look garish or too bright for the eyes.
