Did you know that the type of lighting chosen for a room has a significant impact on the mood of the space? Lamps offer so much more than a practical means to see what you’re doing. They create the opportunity for casting a soft mood in your living room, diffusing a calm mood in your bedroom, and a cosy vibe in your dining space. They are a subtle way to build on the interior design style you want in your home.
Desk lamps are excellent for carrying out desk work in your home office without causing eye strain. They cast light onto the space where you’re positioned, often alleviating the need to switch on your ceiling spotlights or wall lights.
You can choose between a decorative lamp or an LED light bulb on an adjustable swing arm or boom arm style lamp for directing light exactly where you’d like it.

Floor lamps are freestanding and can vary in height from 1.5m to 2.4m. They’re a great way to brighten up the corner of a room or position next to an armchair. There are three main types of floor lamps:
Table lamps, as the name describes, sit on tables and other flat surfaces such as side tables, console tables, sideboards/buffets, hallway tables, bedside tables, dressers and desks.
Table lamps with ceramic bases can be as diverse as a glossy shell pattern to a mottled, matt finish and an urn shape to an hourglass. This means that, in the styling world, this one material can be shaped into a design that matches whatever look you’d like to match.
So, when choosing a ceramic table lamp, look to your other light choices for inspiration. Do you have some French Provincial-style pendant lights nearby? Or perhaps a beautiful chandelier? Your lamp choice should match your other statement lighting pieces either in style, material or shape for a cohesive look.
Modern table lamp designs include a wide variety of styles to match the different interior design choices we choose for our homes.
A big part of the style of a table lamp is determined by its style of lamp base. In any range of table lamps, you’ll find:
Whether you’re choosing a lamp for form or function, it will look best if it matches the style of your decor.
The coastal style favours natural materials like rattan or jute lampshades on a neutral-coloured lamp base like you see in the Bayfront Table Lamp.
For Hamptons and traditional style decor, glass or ceramic table lamp bases in cream, white or blue with a light-coloured lampshade like the Lailar Table Lamp would be a great choice.
Art deco style lends itself nicely to an antique brass or antique silver lamp. While glam luxe calls for luxury finishes like crystal table lamps or the Nova Table Lamp with a chrome base.

You could try adding the lamps you like to your wishlist and comparing them there before making your final selection.
Table lamps can be discreet or make a statement depending on the style you choose and its location.
If you’d like your table lamp to quietly complement your living room furniture, go for something in a style and colour that blends with your walls and furnishings like a linen shade on a neutral-coloured lamp base. Alternatively, if you’d like your lamp to be a statement piece, go for strong features like the Kalapana Table Lamp with a glass pineapple-inspired base.
What sort of lamps do you need in your home? Here’s how most people like to use them:
People spend a lot of time in the living room, so it’s important to get lighting that not only sets the ambience you desire but is also adequate as task lighting for activities like reading, sewing, watching tv, or just spending time together.
A living room gets a style update relatively often. This could be made with small furniture pieces like an ottoman or coffee table or some homewares like cushions.
A new table lamp for your side table or console table is an excellent way to subtly refresh your living room.
If you’re like most people, you want a bedside table lamp. They’re the perfect height next to your bed and mattress for reading and they prevent you from having to get up and switch off your wall light before going to sleep.
If you have a large bedroom, you could also add a floor lamp, perhaps next to an armchair in the seating zone of your bedroom. A dresser is also a great location for a small table lamp, improving your light when you are getting yourself ready to head out.
Picture it, you’ve just sat down in your dining chair ready for a meal. Then someone turns the ceiling lights off and a table lamp on. Instantly, the dining room mood is transformed from the bright setting of your regular daily dinner to a calm, intimate environment.
A dining room is a perfect place for creating a warm, welcoming glow with a lamp. You could place a table lamp on your buffet or display cabinet and a floor lamp in the corner of the room for the perfect amount of illumination.
