Thoughts of a chandelier bring to mind a very expensive and ornate looking lighting feature found in some of the largest and richest homes in the world. This same impression can be achieved on a much smaller scale in your own home with a crystal table lamp. Crystal table lamps give you the elegance and instant opulent appeal that you will allow you to direct the eye anywhere you want it to.
One of the best known makers of crystal is Swarovski and the lamps created by this company are special indeed. When you buy a Swarovski crystal table lamp you are going for a high end look so you may expect to pay a high end price. But there is a large range of different types of crystal lamps that will meet any taste and any standard of refinement and in a lot of cases the price is quite reasonable.

Crystal table lamps were just as popular during the retro era as any other type of lamp and the extravagant flair that went into most retro design is in evidence in the crystal lamps that were made during the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
We can see that there is an amazing difference in crystal lamps available, some that are virtually glass table lamps that are just a little more sparkly or a much more glitzy affair that makes use of numerous crystals and hanging prisms. Other lamps feature crystal lamp stands under an understated fabric lampshade which also looks extremely effective.
The types of rooms or circumstances where a crystal table lamp as a decorative feature are a lot more limited than other types of table lamps. In general the crystal lamp is a much showier piece that will complement an obviously expensive room. If you put one in a country or rustic type of room it will stick out like a sore thumb and rather than adding to the room it may very well detract from it.
The primary purpose of the table lamp is to provide a source of illumination and this is also the case with a crystal table lamp. However these types of lamps are also predominantly showpieces and should be treated as such. Make sure the lamp is positioned in a place where it will be noticed and admired.
