Which table lamps are best?
The room in which the table lamp will be placed, and the purpose it will fulfil, greatly determines which lamp would be best suited to you.
When illuminating a home office or workbench, a space where plenty of light is important in a particular direction, it is wise to choose a desk lamp with flexibility to direct light to where it is needed, much like a bankers lamp or an adjustable lamp.
In a room where a light’s purpose is purely more aesthetic, such as a bedroom or living room, glass table lamps are a decorative choice that can aid in creating a space more inclined to be relaxing and atmospheric. Similarly, a lamp with a fabric shade will act as a pretty table lamp, but will not work as great for a practical purpose.
With a vast selection of both gorgeous modern and interesting antique desk lamps to choose from, deciding which period you’d like yours to be from can be difficult as it can be crucial in forming the overall feel of the space.
A period home would look best with a more traditional table lamp. If you have browsed through the antique table lamp collection and still can’t seem to find what you are looking for, speak to our team and we may have a period table lamp that is awaiting restoration.
Modern table lamps offer greater flexibility in terms of customisation, and it makes things a lot easier if you’re trying to source a pair of table lamps for spaces like either side of the bed. We also have a large selection of glass table lampshades to choose from, to show your personal style through your lamp fixture.
How to choose a table lamp size?
Selecting the size of your table lamp is important; it needs to be aesthetically in proportion to the location. Too large and it overpowers the space it is situated in, but too small and the lamp looks lost.
Large table lamps
For a larger space such as an entrance hall or the side table of a grand living room, large table lamps are the preferred option to properly illuminate the space and add impactful lighting. This could be a large, industrial-style table lamp or a modern table lamp with a large shade.
