Table Lamp Decor Ideas
Table lamps can enhance your furnishing choices and, when positioned well, can elevate your home decor. To softly illuminate your living room, place table lamps on your desk or side table. Use them to accentuate a beautiful coffee table and create a more intimate atmosphere.
Decorating with a pair of table lamps is a popular way to create balance and rhythm in your space. Arrange them on either end of your buffet, the fireplace mantel, or next to the sofa, for example.
Paired lamps don’t necessarily need to be exactly the same. Try mixing different lamp styles of similar heights for a more eclectic look. When arranging multiple table lamps, keep in mind it is best to choose lamp shades of similar materials so the amount of light filtered through the shades stays consistent.
Desk lamps and bedside table lamps are a necessity, making your working and reading easier. Functionality and style go hand in hand when making your choice for desk or bedroom light fixtures. Consider how luminous you want them to be, browsing through our selection of opaque or more clear lampshades. You also want to decide on how focused and localized you prefer the light to be while reading.
Adjustable lights and dimmers are a great way to alter completely the vibe of the room with a simple fade down. Touch-sensitive lamps, for example, are perfect for your nightstands, so you wouldn't have to fiddle with the switch.
Make the best use of lighting to showcase your accent furniture. Torchieres or floor lamps, as well as table lamps and decorative wall sconces, can create the perfect backdrop for your statement piece of furniture to really shine.
When planning the layout of your living room, arrange the light sources so they won’t be in the way while guests socialize in the sitting area. The height of the lamps and the style of the shades should hide the bulb from view when you’re standing or sitting near them.
Before settling on a particular lamp, consider how it will work with the rest of your light sources. Keep in mind what your overhead lighting fixtures are - does your room have a modern flush mounted ceiling fixture, or is it furnished with luxurious chandeliers and pendant lights. Do you prefer mounting a ceiling fan with chandelier light, or sets of mini chandeliers at different areas of the room?
Try mixing recessed or flush ceiling fixtures that cast an overall relaxed glow, with accent lighting beams to spotlight specific room areas. This way you can quickly move from soft indirect light to a dramatic highlight of textures, art objects or other decor elements. Layering different lighting within the same space is what gives you the flexibility to change the vibe of the room with a touch of the switch.
