Table lamps come in different styles as there are furniture styles. Here are a few of the most popular styles you’re likely to come across.
When you think country or cottage styles, a rustic, but still warm and inviting look comes to mind. This table lamp style will usually have a down-home look to it. Lamps in this style might have muted colors, such as sage green or ivory. They usually are made of stoneware or wood, and their lampshades are often a neutral color. If the shade does have a pattern, it usually soft stripes or large florals.
A Tiffany-style lamp features a decorative, stained-glass shade. The base of the lamp is usually an ornate or decorative column made of bronze or another type of dark brown metal. An example of this is the Verity Garden Tiffany Table Lamp. Timeless triangular floral-themed glass shade with a complex arrangement of genuine Tiffany glass creates an impressive lighting display for your living space.
Mid-century modern style first came about in the mid-20th century. It experienced a revival starting in the early 21st century and has remained a popular style ever since. Mid-century modern style can be difficult to define, but you know it when you see it. Think colorful, ceramic lamps or lamps with carved wooden bases. Natural materials are a large component of the style, as is accessibility. The Winnipeg Glazed Red Ceramic Table Lamp is a beautiful example of the mid-century modern style.

A contemporary or modern lamp looks like it belongs to your time. Modern lamps are often made of colourful glass or shiny metal. Usually, two hallmarks of contemporary style are curves and sleek lines.
One way to spot a craftsman or mission style table lamp is to look at the shade. This table lamp style typically have a wide, pyramid shaped shade over top of a column shaped base. The shade is often made out of stained glass. An example of this is the Vermont Stained Glass Table Lamp.
Two things set industrial style lamps apart from other styles: exposed bulbs (usually an Edison bulb) and rough materials, such as unstained wood or cast iron pipes. The Scandustrial Lane Table Lamp is an example of this style.
How to choose the best table lamp for your bedroom?
Bedside table lamps can set the mood for your entire bedroom, so choosing the right kind of table lamps to adorn your side tables is integral to the look and feel you want to convey. Deciding on the best bedroom lamp for you will depend on your preferences. You can get a lamp to match your bedroom furniture, or you might need something to provide lots of light for reading. Before deciding on which lamp to get, take a look at the following list to ensure you get bedroom lighting that you will love.
Begin by asking yourself, ‘What do I want these lamps for?’ Do you prefer to make a style choice, or do you need enough light to read by as you settle in for bed? You will have different considerations for romantic mood lighting, table lamps that brighten a dark corner, or lamp shades that create a softer light. Opt for directional lighting for reading or ambient lighting to get rid of any shadows.
As much as bedroom sets, bedside lamps come in several types and styles. The metal lamps with narrow bases work great on smaller bedside tables or if you need extra surface area for books, cups, clocks, and reading glasses. A wider shade with multiple bulbs provides more overall light. The components that go into the lamp denote its sturdiness; a metal lamp is sturdier and more durable compared to a glass table lamp or a wooden bedside lamp.
The hues of your bedside lamps should match the rest of your bedroom. Consider a darker-coloured lamp if your bedroom set contains darker wood or stained wood. Supposing your bedroom set is white, you can match the lamps with your bedding as opposed to the colors of the end tables. Also matching materials of the same colour; a dark metal headboard and matching end tables might mean dark metal lamps with white shades to complement your bedroom’s look.
Different lamp shades form various lighting effects. A glass shade gives off a glow above the lamp with brighter light below it, while a lamp shade with a wide opening at the top brightens the area above your bedside table and reduces shadows. A directional shade, perfect for reading lights, narrows the light to a specific area.
The shade material and colour will impact the light effect you get. A dark-coloured shade mutes the light given off the side of the lamp, but it focuses light above and below. A metal shade is completely opaque, and if you have a one-sided shade, it brightens either below or above the lamp but not both. A ivory-coloured sheer shade softens the light all around the table for a romantic feel.
The style of your bedroom plays a part in the type of bedside lamp to choose, whether you want Victorian, baroque, rustic, country, or art deco lamps. Country and rustic furniture is usually made of wood, whereas Victorian and baroque furniture comes in metal. Contemporary design comes from the latest trends in interior decoration. You should match your lamp with the decor of the rest of the room so the pieces blend with your bedroom set.
The luminosity of the light coming from a desk lamp or any other kind of light source helps determine the lighting effects.You can achieve brighter light with various bulbs. The compact fluorescent bulbs are brighter than traditional incandescent bulbs, while soft white light bulbs have a more muted effect because the outside glass diminishes the intensity of the inner part of the bulb. Look for the lumens rating on the bulb’s specifications, and don’t exceed the manufacturer’s recommended wattage for the lamp.
