Aside from being a convenient choice for illuminating your favorite reading corner, floor lamps provide a simple way to spruce up a bare spot in any room. Because floor lamps so commonly become a style "anchor" in a space, choose wisely! Floor lamps offer both convenience (they are portable!) plus a true stand-alone style.
There are two main parts to lamps that can be decorative and they are the base and the lampshade. Although you can have both very decorative, it is better to have one that is plain and the other striking. This will have the most effect on your decorative table lamps and changing the color of the bulb can change the whole feeling in the room altogether. You may be tempted to buy very large table lamps; however, you have to imagine what they will look like on the table they are to be placed on. If they will dwarf the table, you might be better with smaller ones. You need to consider where the lamps are to be put before choosing.
As well as having a lamp that suits a set purpose your contemporary table lamp should also fit your room's décor. For example, a gorgeous driftwood lamp may be perfect for that beach house a room with an ocean style décor but will simply detract from the overall effect of an ultra modern living room. While a beautiful bauble chrome lamp may look perfect and even add a touch of chic drama to a modern living room, it will look out of place in a country style kitchen or Victorian dining room. So, make sure when you choose a contemporary table lamp that it going to enhance your décor and not detract from it.
Modern floor lamps are particularly useful. You can adjust the lighting intensity and length of the tripod, changing the direction of light in a desired direction. Some models can even vary at will the shape of the lamp. Floor lamp with shade create a soft, diffused light. This effect is achieved by using special light-scattering materials: rice paper, cotton, blown glass or acrylic plastic. Designer lampshades, by contrast, creates a concentrated light to target the desired coverage areas.
If your home is modern and you are simply not sure what type of contemporary lamp will most suit your home's décor, choose a lamp that is simple yet elegant. Wood, glass, and metallic bases are all great choices and there are many elegant styles available including hourglass shapes, rectangle and tri pod, triangle and round. Use decorative lighting that gives off a soft homey glow for entryways, and dining rooms, and of course that romantic bedroom. If you have a particularly dark corner in a room, then a somewhat brighter light can make the area feel more welcoming and attractive. However, don't choose decorative lighting that makes your home look like an airport runway. Softer light is friendlier and more flattering making everyone feel more comfortable and look more attractive.
