Unique Lamps As an Interior Element

I like art and design. For me architecture, include an interior and exterior design as a part of art. An architect also has a sense of art beside the skill of drawing a house or building. This time, I want to write something makes me curious more about lamp. Lamp is a part of lightning. A room will function optimally if it has a light inside. Not only natural light in the morning or in the afternoon, lighting absolutely necessary at night. Based on the function, lamp can be divided into two, Lamp as a lighting and lamp as as architectural or interior element. To add more values in a room or object with certain settings.

Lamp as a lighting must have illumination standard. Like in the study room, in this room required a power of lamp which is different standards compared with the other space. Lamp as an architectural refers to the effect that would be generates by the lamp. For example the lamp will provide elegant or fancy effect that may change the appearance of the house more beautiful.

Generally, the function of light can be divided into three, like:

  • General lighting is lighting intended to illuminate the whole of space. The nature of light is spread evenly throughout the space.
  • Task Lighting is lighting that is supportive to a specific activity such as learning, reading, sewing and many more.
  • Decorative lighting is lighting that raise the dramatic effect on certain object. Object is usually as an interior element that has special impression, such as painting, pottery, crafts and other aesthetic elements.

How to optimize the placement of lamps

Lamp has a lot of variety. However, it doesn't mean we can arrange all the lamps like we want. Therefore, the people who live inside the house must notice a few things before applying the light on the room. Light was not only functioned as lighting, but it was affecting the display of space. What should we do? There are some things that should be considered in the light settings and we can optimize the lamp placement, like:

  • The first we have to concern about the function of the light in the room. Because every room must have a mandatory standard of lighting power to get attention, like: family room or reading room.
  • The second is the influence of light on the room temperature. There are several types of lamps that will effect to the room temperature. So the room temperature could increase, so it need more of electricity consumption.Some people may not pay attention to this, In fact, this is also associated the effect will be produced by the lamp and the color that was issued by the lamp also. Better using kind of LED(Light Emitting Diode) lights, because the type of this lamp is more efficient and durable. In addition, this lamp is also brighter than other lamps.
  • The third is lamp effect. Each lamp has a different effect for each room. For example in the bedroom, the lamp is not only as a lighting but also give psychological effect that can accommodate the personal needs of person who sleep in the bedroom. Decorative lamp is an important factor in the design of bedroom. Convenience which offered by the soft light, which is make you more comfortable and stay longer in the bedroom. We can add colorful light, it give the impression or the futuristic aspect.
  • The existences of the lamp in the house also need to be applied with the interior of the house. Because the lamp not only as a lighting of the room but also as a decorative element. Therefore, it needs some adjustments between lighting design and interior design. For example, the house with minimalist design, make sure that the lamp also has minimalist concept with minimal detail. For modern room with minimalist design, we can use lighter lamp and it usually white.
  • According to the theme of room, the placement of light is also associated with the function space. We need to arrange with other accessories inside the room. So it would not damage the aesthetics of the room. It is also related with the shape, size, color, and type of lamps. Using small spotlights to highlight the furniture like a cupboard door or photos will also give the impression of luxury in your room.

If this hub too heavy and it still difficult to understand for you. Don't worry about that, for bonuses I'll give beautiful pictures of unique lamp. Based on the tittle above "Unique Lamp as an Interior Element. Actually the main impression of this hub is the pictures. I hope it can give us an inspiration and give us many ideas before buying a lamp. For me personally, I can found something unique from the pictures below. For the creative person an idea is never end. Of course they have sense of art to make all these beautiful lamps. I hope all of you enjoy read this hub. Please take a look...

As a member of a design team and having Hubbed about lighting myself, I can relate to all you've written here. Great advice prasetio and what cool lamps you have discovered. There's something here for every taste! I'm a big fan of LED lights, but I must say they are not all brighter than other types of lights. The industry is working on it and hopefully OSHA will allow LED's to replace some of the terrible fluorescent lights they now require in new buildings.

Oooh I love these. So creative and I love creativity and want to live surrounded by it. I must admit I am now inspired to create a lamp as I need some lighting in here. I've been using stings of Christmas lights and just bunching them up on the wall - they look quite good. I love the lights with the crows and I can do the flashlight one.

Brother Prasetio! I cannot believe the lamps you've brought together here. The coffee cups and the wine bottles really stand out to me. This could possibly be done by someone with sentimental attachments to personal items to preserve them! Great recycling could occur! I never know where you're going but I always enjoy the trip!

But, unfortunately I don't have time to take the pictures of it. I am not going anywhere, but my heart is still here. Thank you very much. God bless you, my friend. I hope you always healthy...amen.

I love to buy lamps at Home Goods and Target. They are by far the most affordable. If I find a rellay great lamp base somewhere, I'll go to Lamps Plus to get a great shade. They are reasonably priced as well. I am in love with lamps and the one's you posted are simply gorgeous. I want them all.
