Generally speaking, table lamps and floor lamps provide a combination of ambient lighting and task lighting. They are somewhat multipurpose and use either incandescent or compact fluorescent bulbs. Though incandescent is often considered to provide a better quality of light, some of the recent compact fluorescent bulbs have gotten high ratings in terms of light quality. Since LEDs typically provide uni-directional lighting - they do not work well for table lamps or spaces needing omni-direction lighting. LEDs, although still expensive at this time, do work well for some types of Accent Lamps.
Choosing a lamp that is the same style as the rest of the room can make a strong statement about that particular style. On the other hand, mixing styles can add an interesting complexity to a room. Contemporary or modern style lamps can be successfully introduced into a traditional setting. Conversely, a traditional style lamp can look very nice in a contemporary or modern setting. However, when mixing styles, it is usually important to make sure that there are some other unifying accessory elements in terms of style.
If updating a traditional room - a contemporary or modern lamp may be the right choice. But, be sure to relate the existing decor in some manner - through color, scale, and/or material. Typically, conical shaped shades provide a more traditional look, whereas a drum shade provides a more modern look. If the room has table surfaces that are sufficiently large, the table lamp may be the best choice. Of course, the lamp should not block a view - so coffee tables are typically not the best surface choice. In areas where the horizontal surfaces are narrow such as a buffet table, then the smaller buffet table lamps are usually the best. A narrow and tall lamp such as a candlestick lamp, works well on a narrow surfaces.
Tiffany desk lamps can brighten up a workspace and make time spent at a desk much more enjoyable. They come in a variety of styles, color and design, and are made by many different manufacturers. While almost any type of lamp with a stained glass shade is often referred to as a Tiffany, this can be misleading. Tiffany desk lamps you can buy in stores today are all reproductions of the lamps made in the late 19th century and early 20th century by Louis Comfort Tiffany and his small band of craftspeople. Louis Comfort Tiffany worked in New York, designing stained glass for an interior design firm. The leftover pieces of glass at the end of each work day inspired him to start designed lampshades from them. He did continue doing the design work for the firm for a while, but soon he began exclusively designing and creating his signature lamps. A few artists and craftspeople worked with him to create the lamps, which were art but that he intended to be used in people‘s homes and used, rather than simply admired.
