One part lighting and one part sculpture, the table lamp is an important design element in any room. Table lamps can affect the entire tone of a room, from bright and cheery to dimly-lit and mysterious. Lighting can change the entire ambiance of a room. Following are a few tips to think about when choosing a table lamp for your home or office.
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.
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.
The following is the usual height and shade dimensions for a majority of these beautiful table lamps. Keep in mind that a few lamps in either style will be taller or shorter. If you have something special in mind, you might also consider having your Tiffany Table Lamp or Tiffany Accent Lamp custom made. Of course at a cost, there are several Tiffany Lamp or Tiffany Lighting manufactures that will work with you to custom build exactly what you are looking for.
Lampshades: In general, drum shades look more modern and conical ones look more traditional. The diameter of the lampshade should never extend beyond the edge of the table.
