Table Lamps for Every Setting

Table lamps are not just for providing a reading light at night. When displayed with some forethought, these versatile lights can significantly improve a room’s overall ambiance. These delicate light sources have the power to create a mood all by themselves, and a desk lamp can be the perfect accent to any room in your home.

With so many table lamps to choose from here at Bassett, make a bold statement, or add an element of whimsy to your bedroom or living room. A pair of tall table lamps can add elegance to an office desk or sideboard. The possibilities are endless when you shop for the extensive collection of table lamps at Bassett Furniture.

Styles of Table Lamps

Lamps come in all different styles, from traditional to vintage, to modern avant-garde and more. Choose the Malta Table Lamp for a rustic touch to accent a farmhouse-style bedroom. Alternatively, the Marissa Table Lamp adds contrasting gray lines to complement the black-and-white decor in a living room for a modern accent.

Set two or three lamps in larger rooms on each end table to provide ample lighting to your room. Try choosing lights in the same set to ensure they complement the room's decor and so the lampshade colors are the same. Also, consider where you'll be placing floor lamps relative to the table lamps. It's essential to spread light sources out in a room so there isn't a saturation of light in one area and many shadows in other areas.

Combining lighting is always vital in giving your room the right mood and balance. Task lighting and ambient lighting make a room sparkle and give each lamp purpose. Whatever your needs, design the perfect room with Bassett's guide on choosing the perfect lighting for your spaces.

Home Decor Table Lamp FAQs

How tall should a table lamp be?

Our design experts at Bassett say your table lamps should be tall enough for the bottom of the lampshade to be eye level with the person sitting beside it. If the lamp height is correct, this allows for the perfect amount of light without glare from the bulb. Bedside table lamps should be no taller than 19 to 21 inches from the top of the mattress to ensure the bulb's light will not disturb you.

How do I choose a table lamp?

Different room types work well with different kinds of table lamps. In common areas such as living rooms or entertainment rooms, table lamps can light a room without obstructing any views or focal points for guests. Living rooms naturally encourage good conversation, so making sure lighting is balanced is key.

A small table lamp on your bedside table can be ideal for bedrooms. End table lamps in your bedroom can provide perfect lighting for reading without taking up too much room on your nightstand. A less simple look for a desk lamp can be ideal for your office, where the room's function is more important than its design.

What are table lamps made of?

Bassett Furniture has the widest selection of table lamps around. When you shop with Bassett, you have plenty of design and material options to match any room. We feature lamps made of bone, concrete, crystal, glass, iron, metal, resin, wood, and ceramic table lamps.

What are the benefits of a table lamp?

There are many benefits to table lamps, one being that they are very convenient to turn on; all you have to do is flip a small switch or pull a cord. Also, lamps only illuminate a specific area, so you don't have to worry about too bright a room. In addition, they're perfect if you do not want to disturb a person sleeping next to you with a lot of light. Table lamps make great night lights, so you can keep them on all night without using a lot of electricity. Finally, table lamps make a perfect decorative element.
