Color: The color or material of the lamp can also affect a table lamps dominance in a room. When there is greater contrast in the color of the lamp to the color of the walls or room setting, the lamp will be a stronger design element.
Style: Identify the existing style of the room and determine your style objectives. Keep in mind that there is no one "right" table lamp - it is really a matter of what style or mood you want to express - but some choices are certainly better than others.
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.
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.
