Choosing the right table lamps

7 September 2017

As we all know, it is often the finishing touches in a room that make all the difference. The flooring, wall treatments and furniture may set the style and colour scheme but ultimately it is the lighting that sets the mood. However, it can be difficult with so much choice available to choose the perfect lamps for your room and we have some top tips that might help.

It is easier to buy lamps with a particular spot in mind so, no matter how much you love a lamp, consider where it is to be placed before taking the plunge. Knowing a lamp’s purpose and surroundings will allow you to assess if it is suitable in height and shape as well as style. There are often other things in the room that the lamp must relate to in scale, such as the oversized headboard in this bedroom which required tall lamps alongside it.

Equally you will see how in these two examples the scale of the lamp has been matched to the ‘weight’ of the furniture it sits on. Imagine these two lamp choices reversed and you will see how appropriate each is for their own situation.

 

 

 

It’s ok to mix and match styles, in fact it is often better if you can, but it helps if they have something in common. One key element, such as the finish of the base, the shape or the shade, should ideally be common to both styles so that the mixing of them within a room appears intentional. These lamps are united by their wooden bases and could easily live harmoniously in the same room.

The classic look of a pair of lamps on a sideboard or console is timeless but if two lamps are not necessary for functional reasons we would suggest making a statement out of one. An asymmetrical arrangement can be more interesting visually and, potentially, a more modern look.

It’s also important to remember that the lamps are not the whole story and that the grouping of objects and accessories around lamps can add layers of interest to an interior. The contrasting shapes and textures in these groupings complement each other and make sure your carefully chosen lamps get the attention they deserve.
