The present world is an electrified surrounding. To make post day time a cordial place to live in and bring out the light in the darkness is a blessing that lamps have bestowed upon us. Different adaptations of lamps have been present all through history that dates back to almost 72,000 years ago. Until almost the 18th century, desk lamps were mere oil lamps. Animal fat was initially used as a source of fuel to make light and once pottery techniques came into limelight, people started making lamps of different shapes after which followed metal lamps. Pretty striking and tasteful lamps came into existence when the Greek started experimenting with terra-cotta and these lamps replaced torches. And with the invention of central burners, there was a great improvement in lamp making. Towards late 17th century, gas lamps started to get commercialized. And early 19th century saw the invention of the incandescent light bulb by Thomas Alva Edison. This started replacing the gas lamps. And it is specifically because of this invention that table lamps started to get popularized.
By 1930s, almost every household possessed a table lamp and it has been becoming only more and more common with each passing day and has almost become a necessity. And today, one finds such a wide range of lamps in contemporary as well as modern styles. One is sure to find a lamp for any kind of milieu that can be imagined.
