Lasting Timeless Beauty Versus Cost. Cost will usually be a factor in deciding which style of lamp you choose. Tiffany Table Lamps are more expensive simply because of their style size and design.

Tiffany Accent Lamps are less expensive but by no means less elegant or beautiful. Prices can range from as low as $80 and go up to $400 to $600. The median range for Tiffany Accent Table Lamps are between $150 to $300.
Location: The table lamp should not block a view in get in the way of conversation. If a lamp is on a table between a sofa and a chair consider a thin or transparent base so sight lines and conversation flow freely. Height: Most living rooms can handle a lamp that is 26 to 34 inches tall. The hardware should not be visible to someone sitting in a chair. The bottom of the shade should be about even with a person`s cheekbone when sitting on a chair and the light`s beam should fall on the page when reading.
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.
Sculptural Qualities: In determining the lamp`s sculptural qualities such as size bulk and color the location and visual function of the lamp needs to be considered. Also the table lamp should look good whether it is turned on or off. Size: Typically short or narrow lamps are more appropriate on smaller tables and bulkier and taller lamps are better suited on larger tables or surfaces. A lamp located on a buffet table and other narrow surface should typically be more narrow or shorter. On a petite nesting table or a narrow console a tall and narrow candlestick lamp may be the best choice.
