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.
A crystal table lamp can be the centerpiece of not only your table but the whole room as well. There are so many designs that you can choose from - a modern design, antique design, or even the retro look. While not terribly popular yet, some manufacturers also make battery powered table lamps to help save energy. I have done some extensive research at my favorite online retailer - Amazon.com - and picked out some of my favorite table lamps that I would like to show.
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.
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.
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.
