Lighting Needs: Identify the function of the lamp in terms of lighting needs. Is the lamp`s purpose to provide general area (also called ambient) reading or accent lighting? Wattage: If there are other light sources in the room a 60 watt bulb may provide enough light for a living room. However if only using one or two lamps to light up an entire room it may be best to invest in a 100 to 150 watt bulb or a 3-way bulb. This also gives sufficient light for reading. A reading lamp should offer 150 or more watts. In general rooms should have a light source every 10 feet or so.
Antique Style Lamps. Quite commonly the first thing that comes to mind when people think of "antique style" table lamps is an old rusty and dirty lamp from the 1920`s. That couldn`t be further from the truth as these "old school" lamps are becoming popular once again. In their own right antique lamps are seen as classy and beautiful works of art that happen to be very practical at the same time. Older homes or homes designed with vintage aesthetics will work perfectly with these types of lamps. But of course that doesn`t leave modern homes in the dark (no pun intended).
If you have a room where you want to promote a feeling of tranquility a carefully-selected table lamp can achieve this. If you have a game room where you want a lot of lamp-cast light to shine on various sports memorabilia on the walls choosing the right table lamp can easily accomplish this.
Bulk: If the table lamp needs to assist in visually anchoring an area - then a lamp with more bulk or visual weight such as a pottery jar lamp may be the most appropriate. Table lamps should not compete with the overall design of the room - rather compliment it. Color: The color or material of the lamp can also affect a table lamp`s dominance in a room. When there is greater contrast in the color of the lamp to the color of the walls or room setting the lamp will be a stronger design element.
