Decorative Table Lamps

There are usually two reasons for buying a table lamp. The first of those reasons is to provide a movable source of illumination to a particular part of a room. But if this were the only reason we wanted a table lamp then all lamps would look exactly the same. The other reason for buying a table lamp is to provide the room with a source of decoration, a piece that will catch the eye and add something to the room.

Decorative table lamps come in an astounding array of shapes, sizes, styles, materials and colors. They cater to every taste and to every decorating style so that no matter what design feature must be met there will be a lamp that is suitable. They can include some of the more beautiful types of lamps such as alabaster table lamps, ceramic table lamps, pottery table lamps and even white table lamps

A decorative table lamp may be outrageously ornate with extravagant detail work added to every part of the shade and base giving it an appearance that is impossible to ignore. A decorative table lamp can also be understated, cleverly supplying detail that is designed to complement other elements in the room. The lamp that you buy will depend on your own eye for detail and what you feel is too much.

One of the better known types of decorative table lamps are stained glass lamps such as Tiffany lamps with beautifully designed lamp shades matched with elaborate lamp bases made from brass, copper or bronze. The lamps may either feature sweeping curves that are classically Victorian in their influence or they may feature more straight lines that speak more of a style known as Mission style. Both kinds of lamp will add enormous drama to any room into which they are placed.

When shopping for a decorative table lamp one must consider the rest of the room that it will sit in. Whether the lamp will overpower the rest of the furniture is a consideration that must be addressed with some serious thought. Just as important is ensuring that the lamp is not going to get lost among a jumble of competing decorative pieces.

The task of buying a decorative table lamp is not a process that should be rushed. Fortunately there are many sources, both online and off, that will allow you to see all kinds of decorative lamp styles.

For a few examples of styles that many people consider to be particularly attractive in terms of decorative table lamps you might like to browse through the range of torchiere table lamps or glass globe table lamps. For more decorative items you might also like to look at lamp finials.
