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.
This lamp is classically designed and the glass stem will really fit into any contemporary or modern setting. And while you might think a Waterford crystal lamp is very expensive, you can actually get this beautiful crystal lamp for at discount at about $425.
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.
If you would like to spend a little less on your crystal table lamp but still want to get a modern feel at a discount, take a look at this Crystal Body table lamp. This is a beautifully designed lamp with four glass globes ascending in size from top to bottom. It has a white shade that is made to give perfect lighting while not detracting from the contemporary stem. This lamp also uses the 3-way switch and a maximum 100-watt bulb.
Bulk: If the table lamp needs to assist in visually anchoring an area - then a lamp with more bulk or visual weight such as a pottery jar lamp may be the most appropriate. Table lamps should not compete with the overall design of the room - rather compliment it.
