history behind tv lamps:

"The general consensus was that the concept behind TV lamps was to keep a person from damaging their eyes from watching too much TV. That the lamp would diffuse the light a little bit and keep people from going blind or whatever they thought would happen. A TV lamp doesn’t have a shade like a normal lamp, there’s a bulb behind it so it creates a silhouette of whatever the lamp itself is and it’s casting light on the wall behind the TV, so it’s kind of a mood lighting sort of feeling.
