Size: Typically, short or narrow lamps are more appropriate on smaller tables and bulkier and taller lamps are better suited on larger tables or surfaces. A lamp located on a buffet table and other narrow surface should typically be more narrow or shorter. On a petite nesting table or a narrow console, a tall and narrow candlestick lamp may be the best choice.
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.
Weight and Stability: And finally, make sure that there is some weight or other stabilizing feature to the base of the lamp so that is cannot be easily toppled over.
Wattage: If there are other light sources in the room, a 60 watt bulb may provide enough light for a living room. However, if only using one or two lamps to light up an entire room, it may be best to invest in a 100 to 150 watt bulb or a 3-way bulb. This also gives sufficient light for reading. A reading lamp should offer 150 or more watts. In general, rooms should have a light source every 10 feet or so.
Finally, consider how the table lamp is made. The materials used to build it can imply its longevity and durability. Further, certain materials look differently in the light of a store than they may look in the room or office in which you place the lamp.
