Depending on where you use your contemporary table lamp you may need a lamp that is highly functional such as a curved neck lamp on the stand next to a favorite reading chair. In other cases, you may want a lamp that creates more of an atmosphere such as soft romantic glow in the bedroom while at other times you may need a lamp that serves both purposes at once. Knowing what purpose you want your contemporary table lamp to serve will help you to look for the right lamp for the purpose you need.
Not only are floor lamps more versatile in the traditional tasks assigned to desk lamps, but they also have distinctly different uses. Since a floor lamp illuminates both above and below, they are ideal for sitting rooms to both illuminate the room and the area where people are engaged in conversation. With the option of designs from gaudy to very minimalist, a lamp can be added to a room either as a stylistic addition or simply as a lighting upgrade.
This is not a problem when they are placed into ceiling lights, as they are too high up for you to notice the additional heat that they give out. However, with the desk lamp you are going to be shining it towards the hands. This means that you will feel the heat and not only will that cause problems with comfort, but it will also potentially ruin the treatment that you are providing too. Acrylic nail products will be destroyed in the heat and you will find that liquid monomers will evaporate at a faster rate also. So you really need to be aware of this when choosing the right lamp. Always look for a lamp that contains energy saving light bulbs for your salon.
A lamp must also fit the mood of a room and the environment. Each room must have a different from the others depending on the use of the room. A bedroom table lamp cannot be the same as an office table lamp. The colors of the two lamps must differ because one is meant for a cool sleeping mood while the other is meant for a bright office. A bedroom lamp should bear colors that will make a person feel relaxed and hence be able to unwind.
Choose the proper height. A floor lamp's light should fall in a way that's useful, not invasive or glaring. If you place a very tall one next to your sofa, the glare from the bulb underneath might be annoying and not conducive at all to socializing in a calm environment. Make sure the lamp's light is diffused nicely, in the proper direction; selecting a piece with a flattering shade will help.
