Lamps | Home Lighting Fixtures

A practical and stylish accent to any room

Ceiling fixtures, such as globes or chandeliers , are ideal in most rooms, but don't disregard lamps when it comes to your redesign. A well-placed lamp can provide both accent lighting and added style in your room, and there is no shortage of designs available to complement any decor.

Lamps for Function

When you're choosing a lamp based on its practical purpose rather than its look, you'll first need to evaluate the lighting needs of your space. A room with no ceiling fixture will need strong lighting, such as that provided by a fluorescent lamp (or rather, a lamp that uses fluorescent bulbs), placed strategically in the room. Fluorescent lighting has many benefits, including lower power consumption and a longer lifetime, as well as the clean, bright light the bulbs produce. However, there are a few disadvantages, including a higher price tag on the bulbs and a longer start-up time and wait time for the bulb to reach full brightness. You may want to consider these before purchasing a fluorescent lamp.

If you're adding a lamp for supplementary lighting in a room with a ceiling fixture, think about where you're going to need the light. A tall upward-facing light can illuminate a dark corner without becoming intrusive on the room or overpowering it with light. If you need a light to work or read under, consider directional lighting options, such as swing arm lamps or pole lights with multiple adjustable arms. These lamps allow you to focus direct light where you need it, when you need it, but can also be directed away for a more subtle lighting scheme.

Common Types of Lamps:

Floor Lamps

Floor lamps are available in many styles to complement any taste. Tiffany floor lamps with their elegant glass shades or antique floor lamps with intricate brass polework will suit a formal room best. If you're looking for something more exciting, check out the wide selection in contemporary floor lamps. Here you'll find experimental styles and materials, such as paper lantern floor lamps or plastic-tiled sculptural pieces. Pole designs such as chunky wood block or fluted metal add an architectural flair to your room, while multiple (and often extendable) globe designs serve a practical and aesthetic purpose.

When you're choosing a floor lamp, remember to consider stability and position. Many floor lamps are precarious, especially on carpeting, so be sure to place them in an out-of-the-way area where they will be safe from bumping or tripping. Remember to check the type of bulb required as well, as fluorescent and halogen floor lamps will require different types of bulbs.

Table Lamps

Table lamps are often chosen for their appearance more than their practicality, as the light they provide is usually contained in one small area.

Still, choosing for style is a great way to add to the decor of your room. Antique table lamps and French country table lamps, both known for their elaborate bases and simpl...
