Bulk: If the table lamp needs to assist in visually anchoring an area - then a lamp with more bulk or visual weight such as a pottery jar lamp may be the most appropriate. Table lamps should not compete with the overall design of the room - rather compliment it.
Third, ask yourself if you can live with a particular lamp style over time. Some lamps are distinctive and may look interesting in a store. However, oddly-shaped or with protruding angles, some lamps unique style can quickly wear out their welcome. Remember, you will see it every day. If you grow tired of looking at it, the lamp is likely not doing its job. Take the time to consider how you will feel about your lamp 5 years from now.
Height: Most living rooms can handle a lamp that is 26 to 34 inches tall. The hardware should not be visible to someone sitting in a chair. The bottom of the shade should be about even with a persons cheekbone when sitting on a chair and the lights beam should fall on the page when reading.
This lamp is not cheap, but you can get it at a pretty good discount of $164. This is $85 off of the list price. Not a bad price for one of the most gorgeous lamps I have ever seen.
Lampshades: For general purpose lighting, it is better to choose a lamp with a lampshade that has some degree of transparency such as a fabric, weave, or glass that is light in color. A semi-transparent lampshade gives a room a softer look. On the other hand, a lampshade that has little transparency will provide a stronger, more concentrated light pattern which can create a dramatic effect. A lampshade that has a wider brim at the bottom will spread the light out toward the bottom which is good for a reading lamp.
