Table lamps are maybe what we think of most often when we think of lighting in the house, because we have the closest proximity to them, and are often directly turning them on and off at the source. Overhead lights and wall sconces are usually flicked on by a wall switch, and take up much less physical space. They’re subtle and small, whereas lamps are usually much larger, with elaborate bases, stems, and lamp shades. Because they’re one of the most obvious forms of lighting, you obviously want to make sure that you love the lamp you buy. That’s a good thing, though, because you came to the right place. Beautiful Things Lighting has all the best table lamps on the market, and for great prices, too.
Table lamps are also maybe the most versatile lighting for your home, though, in that they can be moved practically anywhere in your house. While ceiling or wall fixtures need installation and become rather permanent, it’s easy to pick up a table lamp and move it to another part of the house, or even to an entirely new house! For that reason, they’re also able to survive for long periods of time, and even through multiple generations. Because of this, you’ll want to choose the perfect lamp to last a lifetime. There’s no better place to choose one, though, because along with all the best brands and almost every style, we’ve got any finish you could ask for, including aged silver, antique brass, black, gold, and ponderosa.
So, with all of this in mind, here’s what to consider while buying a table lamp. The first thing is size. If you buy a table lamp with a wide base, it’s going to need wider furniture to stand on. This is because you often don’t want a lamp to take up the entirety of a table, especially if it’s next to a couch or bed, otherwise that table becomes practically useless! A narrower base lamp is more versatile, as it can fit on more furniture. The second thing is shape. Lamps create light based on their height and their lamp shade. Height dictates the light source origin, and the lamp shade shape dictates which direction the light goes in. A wider lamp shade allows for more light to be emitted, so the width at the top and bottom of the lamp shade is important. If you want it to shine more at the bottom, the bottom should be wider, and the same goes for the top. The third thing is how solid the lampshade is. This is based on color and material. A thinner, lighter lampshade will allow more light to come through the shade, whereas a darker, thicker lampshade makes sure that the light only comes out of the openings.
