Table lamps are the most practical luminaires that provide light to the work surfaces. This utilitarian feature had become the most coveted decorative accessory. They can be used anywhere – in offices or homes and still do not work in place. They are very useful when performing tasks such as reading or writing. As a decorative accessory, they work very well with all interior design schemes. They can add a splash of color or soften aesthetically extra vibrant colors. Because table lamps are extremely versatile, the options available are endless – one could spoil the choice.
How to use table lamps?
Large table lamp shades work well with all spaces. They are usually used as bed accessories in bedrooms, side table luminaires or corner decorations in living rooms and offices. They are more often than not used as complementary lighting. They can also be placed in corridors, stairwells and near doorways or anywhere extra lights or ornaments.
The style of the large table lamps depends on the style of the lamp. The lampshade can be selected based on the shape and style of the lamp. Many times the lampshade becomes the center of the room. Sometimes it has to be underestimated and at other times it has to be very flamboyant – everything aims to make a strong style statement.
Since lampshades can be very dramatic and different, it is important to understand its function and decide how it should be placed. Lampshades must complement the shape of the lamp. Sometimes the contrast also works beautifully as an accessory, if it is chosen well.
The right size of table lamp.
The rule of thumb when choosing a lampshade is – the higher the lamp, the larger the lampshade. The lampshade should be approximately ¾ the height of the base and directly proportional to the height of the harp. If the shadow has a narrow edge, it will cast a direct light but if the shadow has a wide edge, it will let the light shine over a larger area.
Table lamps are only accessories. They should complement the existing furniture and overall style. Depending on the interior of the room, you can choose between Tiffany lamps and parts with gold or glass bases or stylish metal or uniquely shaped luminaires that are more trendy and modern. For an uneven look, there are many options in different materials such as bamboo, glass, artificial leather, parchment, raw silk, shantung, cotton, string and linen. Large sophisticated shades made of crocheted or knitted or latticed lace are fantastic accessories and add a touch of class and a lot of style to the room.
