In the early 1900`s a large Tiffany Lamp cost around $100 with the smaller lamps costing around $40. The price of a beautiful Tiffany Lamp hasn`t changed much in the last hundred plus years if you take into account the rise of inflation. When you consider the cost of either style of lamp as they did a hundred years ago consider also their lasting timeless beauty. The years of enjoyment you will receive from a Tiffany Table Lamp or Tiffany Accent Lamp may be well worth the investment.
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.
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.
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.
