If you have a room where you want to promote a feeling of tranquility, a carefully-selected table lamp can achieve this. If you have a game room where you want a lot of lamp-cast light to shine on various sports memorabilia on the walls, choosing the right table lamp can easily accomplish this.
Choosing a lamp that is the same style as the rest of the room can make a strong statement about that particular style. On the other hand, mixing styles can add an interesting complexity to a room. Contemporary or modern style lamps can be successfully introduced into a traditional setting. Conversely, a traditional style lamp can look very nice in a contemporary or modern setting. However, when mixing styles, it is usually important to make sure that there are some other unifying accessory elements in terms of style.
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.
Location: The table lamp should not block a view in get in the way of conversation. If a lamp is on a table between a sofa and a chair, consider a thin or transparent base so sight lines and conversation flow freely.
First, ask yourself if you are only person that will be using the lamp on a daily basis and if you will use it often. A lamp must be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. If you plan to do a lot of reading at a table in your home office, you may need a stronger light from a short lamp. Alternatively, if you want to create a warm mood in your living room, a softer light from a tall lamp will be more effective. Further, your office may need a lamp that is short, casts a lot of light and doesnt attract unnecessary attention to itself.
