Black is a mood color and it is a color of simple elegance and refinement. It reflects a mood and makes a statement and as the color of a lamp it is a bold contrast to the illumination that will be emanating from it. A black table lamp, either the lamp base or the lamp shade or an all-black combination, will work with most room décor.
Although black is a severe color that some people might associate with a darkening effect in the room there are any number of ways in which it can add light and contrast to the room. A black lamp base with a white lamp shade will create the perfect accent piece in a modern contemporary room. Similarly, a highly polished black gloss finish will make a bold statement rather than being a dark forgettable lamp.

All kinds of black lamps are available in a range of styles to suit all manner of taste. Where there is an absence of color you should be looking at the design and contours that will give the lamp the aesthetic appeal and eye catching beauty.
A decorative piece doesn’t necessarily have to be garishly loud in the colors for it to be a stand out piece. A few creative touches such as twisted knots or high gloss sheen can turn what would otherwise be a plain black lamp into a thing or wondrous beauty.
Although many examples of lamps from the retro era played outrageously with color, there are times when the tones were more muted and black table lamps from the era were quite common. In a lot of cases the lamps were made with black as the dominant color with some clever highlight flashes of color scattered either in the base or the lamp shade to give it a point of interest.
