Table lamps are wonderful for adding soft warm lighting to areas of your home or office and can be used easily as an addition to wall lights and ceiling fixtures in many rooms of your home. Traditionally they are used either side of Chairs, Beds and Settees but they can be used to place light anywhere in the home that it is required, maybe on a small stand in an entrance porch giving a welcome to guests and adding extra security during the night.
With a huge variety of sizes and styles to choose from, pay particular attention to the height of the fitting taking into consideration the final height when the shade is added, you want it to be both functional and to blend in with your overall room design. When placed on a table you need to ensure that it is tall enough to cast light over your shoulder for reading etc. If it is more for a decorative feature you will want the height to compliment the surrounding furnishings. Your shade selection will also have an effect on the light output. Remember that a shade with a wide brim will cast more light over a larger area that a shade with a narrow brim.
Table lamps come in many different styles so there is sure to be one available to suit your taste. If the fitting is for you choose one that suits your own personal taste, that matches well with the surrounding furnishings, for a younger member of your family maybe pick a funky modern bright fitting. As a gift you may wish to select a traditional or retro style.
Most Table Lamps have a standard bulb holder that can accept both traditional bulbs and the new low energy ones. Some fittings have the switch built into the bulb holder and others have an inline switch on the mains lead. Plug in dimmer switches are now also available to add extra control.
