Lamps are a Multi-Purpose Accessory

Lamps accessorize a room in much the same way as jewelry does a wardrobe. In addition to enhancing the aesthetics of a room, they are a highly functional décor item. Lamps can be used to draw attention to statement pieces in a room or incorporated into the décor to distract from or alter a challenging aspect of the room’s design.

Floor Lamps
There’s such an extensive variety of decorative floor lamps, that you’re sure to find many that complement your décor. If your room design includes a corner that is a challenge to decorate, a floor lamp can transform that space into a focal point in the room. If space allows, add a floor lamp and a small table or chair to that area to give it a sense of coziness. If adding furniture isn’t an option, you can place an impressive plant or a magnificent sculpture in the corner with the lamp to make the area attractive and noticeable. You can place floor lamps beside of a bed, sofa or accent chair instead of side tables. This is an ideal design idea when space is limited or when you’re trying to achieve a minimalistic décor. Floor lamps are a popular, attractive and functional choice of lighting for a reading area.

Table Lamps
Table lamps are an accessory that gives you the opportunity to add a personal flair to a room décor. The distinctive lamp base design options are limitless.  You can select lamps that have uniquely designed bases featuring details that complement your décor. Lamp bases featuring a shell design or those with fish and nautical designs would be great in a coastal theme room.  A mermaid lamp base would be a unique design element in a bathroom. Wicker lamp bases accentuate the feeling of relaxation in a casual living area or sunroom. Uniquely-shaped glass lamp bases are exceptionally versatile and can enhance the beauty of any room or any décor.

When selecting lamps for a room, the size, shape and style of the lamp shade is also a factor to consider. Be sure that the height of the lamp and the size of the shade complement each other. Choose your lamps like you would select a piece of art and they are sure to enhance your décor.
