The first lamp was invented around 70,000 BC. A hollow rock, shell or other natural found object was filled with moss or similar material that was soaked with animal fat and ignited. Humans began imitating the natural shapes with manmade pottery, alabaster, and metal lamps. Wicks were later added to control the rate of burning. Around the 7th century BC, the Greeks began making terracotta lamps to replace handheld torches. The word lamp is derived from the Greek word lampas, meaning torch.
Choosing the right lampshades can be a complicating and time-consuming process. Here, we will go through some of the benefits of having a lampshade, since it provides various benefits.
1. The main purpose of Table Lamps is to protect your eyes from the direct light, a shade between you and the bulb.
2. It can aim the ray of light to the needed direction to illuminate a working area or highlight some artwork.
3. Lampshades conduct heat away from the light bulb. This is important when using incandescent bulbs because in this case almost 90% of electric power is turned into heat.
4. Why use LED light? because of tit’s high lumen output per watt, LEDs are capable of turning about 70% of their energy into light. This makes them much more efficient than other bulbs, which waste a lot of energy by turning it into heat. It takes a 6 watts LED bulb to produce the amount of light that a 40-watt incandescent does, and their lower temperature also makes them safer to operate. In comparison, incandescent bulbs can get so hot that they should be kept out of reach of children who might burn themselves
The bottom line is:
A lampshade is always so much more than just a lampshade. It’s the element of decor that can totally transform not just the way a room looks, but also how it feels. A well-chosen lampshade diffuses the light in a way that enhances a room’s ambiance, whereas the wrong lampshade can have the opposite effect.
