Antique table lamps are the perfect accent for a room with a historical theme. If you're just starting out in collecting antiques, lamps may be a more affordable option than large pieces of furniture.
Antique vases have often been used in lamp bases, a fashion which continues today. Another option is a Victorian gas table lamp which has been refitted to use electricity.
If you're not ready to invest in actual antiques, today's table lamps are available in a variety of traditional styles to create whatever visual effect you have in mind, whether it be Colonial American or ancient Greek.
