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.
Now this crystal table lamp with a contemporary crystal-like shade is very unique and modern. It certainly is the complete opposite of the antique lamps we just looked at above! This lamp is has a chandelier style lighting from the 3 glass "lamp shades". It has a slim stem and a round base to give it plenty of support. It is made of acrylic and steel, and the manufacturer says it is easy to assemble. It uses normal 40-watt chandelier bulbs which you should be able to get at any hardware store. I am not sure exactly what kind of lighting this lamp provides, but it sure is one of the most unique, elegant, and contemporary table lamps available!
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.
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.
Third, ask yourself if you can live with a particular lamp style over time. Some lamps are distinctive and may look interesting in a store. However, oddly-shaped or with protruding angles, some lamps unique style can quickly wear out their welcome. Remember, you will see it every day. If you grow tired of looking at it, the lamp is likely not doing its job. Take the time to consider how you will feel about your lamp 5 years from now.
