At Tabula Rasa, we sell a range of designer table lamps. As you get deeper into decorating your home, you will realise that it is the tiny details that can end up making a big difference. While the theme, style and colour scheme are all very important, it is often the designer lighting that ultimately sets the mood and creates the ambiance of your choice. Do not underestimate the value of an elegant table lamp which can bring symmetry, colour, contrast, texture and illumination to any room.
When choosing a table lamp, take a few things into consideration. Darker and textured table lamp shades can often add drama and highlight specific pieces or areas as they tend to cast light downward instead of casting light outwards. White or more transparent shades make lighting brighter and will reflect to illuminate a larger area. Contrasting colours will make the table lamp stand out whereas tonal colours will subdue their presence. There are really no rules, so mix and colours and styles can be mixed and matched to produce a more layered interesting look. The scale of the table lamp is also important. A quick test is whether or not you can see the neck of the light bulb or the socket from a seated position. If your seating is large, consider medium to large table lamps. Lastly, consider function. A more opaque table lamp will reduce glare or reflection on the television screen, whilst a semi-opaque table lamp will provide a warm glow for reading. The bottom of the shade should ideally be at eye level when you are seated.
