The following is the usual height and shade dimensions for a majority of these beautiful table lamps. Keep in mind that a few lamps in either style will be taller or shorter. If you have something special in mind you might also consider having your Tiffany Table Lamp or Tiffany Accent Lamp custom made. Of course at a cost there are several Tiffany Lamp or Tiffany Lighting manufactures that will work with you to custom build exactly what you are looking for.
Now this crystal table lamp with a contemporary crystal-like shade is very unique and modern. It certainly is the complete opposite of the antique lamps we just looked at above! This lamp is has a chandelier style lighting from the 3 glass "lamp shades". It has a slim stem and a round base to give it plenty of support. It is made of acrylic and steel and the manufacturer says it is easy to assemble. It uses normal 40-watt chandelier bulbs which you should be able to get at any hardware store. I am not sure exactly what kind of lighting this lamp provides but it sure is one of the most unique elegant and contemporary table lamps available!
Lampshades: For general purpose lighting it is better to choose a lamp with a lampshade that has some degree of transparency such as a fabric weave or glass that is light in color. A semi-transparent lampshade gives a room a softer look. On the other hand a lampshade that has little transparency will provide a stronger more concentrated light pattern which can create a dramatic effect. A lampshade that has a wider brim at the bottom will spread the light out toward the bottom which is good for a reading lamp.
Making The Right Decision. There are many lamps of every style that will perform whatever function you need them to perform. Often when decorating you will feel an impulse to buy an item that you think would look perfect. However you will live with your purchase for many years. Take your time in selecting a good lamp. Consider who will it on a daily basis. If your family will see it get their input. Know what you need the lamp to do for you. Know where you plan to use it. Consider the materials out of which the lamp is constructed.
