Lighting sets the stage for your room, it creates a mood. It can be dramatic, romantic, or no-nonsense, but it should always be welcoming.
Table lamps do this and more. They give a soft glow to a dark corner, or accent a mantel, work of art or table. They help break a large room into smaller spaces and define areas of your room such as a reading area and a conversation area. And, of course, they provide the light you need to read the newspaper or the latest novel by your favorite author. They are certainly the most popular form of lighting for nearly every room in the house.

So – if you have a table that is 30″ in height, the table lamp should typically be between 28″- 34″ (to top of finial). Also, consider that when you are in a seated position – your eyes should not be looking at the socket or bulb.
Place an existing lamp on the table where you want to add a new lamp. Put books or other under the existing lamp to make it taller to compare with potential new lamp – if applicable.
When determining the best size table lamp, it is important to compare the size of the table to the diameter of the lampshade. The width or depth of the lamp shade needs to be no larger than the narrowest dimension of the table. Otherwise, the lampshade would hang over the edge of the table – and that is not usually desirable. This is typically an issue for buffet lamps or bedside lamps where the depth of the table is narrow.
Lampshades are also important features of a table lamp – and greatly affect its style. In most cases, an angled-side or cone shape lampshade expresses a more traditional style and a vertical-side or drum shape expresses a more contemporary or modern style. If you want to update your traditional lamp – consider changing the shade to a drum style lampshade.
Finding lamps for a dresser, bedside table, or buffet table can require special attention because these surfaces are narrow – generally between 16” and 20” in depth.
Lamps with rectangular or oval shades often make good bedside lamps because they are narrow in depth, yet they provide the width to visually anchor the space on each side of the bed.
You may decide to “match” or “not match” the style of the lamp with the furniture or architecture – depending on your objective. Some designers make it a point to NOT EXACTLY match the table lamp style with the furniture style.
Also important when designing a space is to diversify the types of lighting – mix table lamps, floor lamps, chandeliers, recessed lighting, and other types of accent lighting. You probably will not be able to use all of these lighting sources in one room – but, you could likely use at least 2 or 3.
