Table Lamp Rules

Finding the right table lamp can be almost as difficult as choosing what color to paint your walls. When you bring home the one you picked one out it just seems a little too small or somewhat out of place. Knowing what to look for before you shop is the key to making this process go smoothly.

Typically, most interior designers say to find a table lamp that is around 30 inches tall. This is from the bottom of the base to the top of the actual shade. If you really want to get an accurate measurement, you’ll want to pick a lamp that is around 58-64 inches from the ground in the room you’re looking to place it in. So you’ll want to measure the distance between the height of the table and the ground, then use the difference to find the height of lamp to look for.

Once you get the measurements down, the lamp shade should sit at about eye level for the average person. This will help diffuse direct light to the eye by still shedding enough light on items below the shade.

The width of the lamp can vary quite a bit, and typically just comes down to your preferred style. A skinnier lamp is a bit more delicate while a wide base can look modern and sturdy. Typically the wider the better, but you don’t want to overwhelm the table space with too much lamp. Most designers stick to shades no larger than half the table width.

Stained glass is truly an art form. Each individual piece is hand selected and soldered into place carefully by the artist. Stained glass lamp shades have been a classic staple in many homes and they can help set a comfortable and cozy atmosphere. These are not a one-size-fits-all option, but can be appropriately installed in just about any room in a home.

Stained glass light fixtures give off a warm glow, and can be as much of a focal point in a room as a piece of art or sculpture would be. These fixtures are made with care, and are made to last both physically and aesthetically.

Though typically thought of as fixtures in a home office, billiard room, or living room, many people have been able to incorporate stained glass lighting in bedrooms, kitchens and even bathrooms!
