As we know perfectly well by now, the lighting in a room plays a key role in creating atmosphere, but there is much more to it than that. Table lamps, being smaller in size than chandeliers and main lamps, help to enhance the ‘mood’ of a room by giving it a special touch in terms of style. What should not be underestimated, in fact, is that designer table lamps, in addition to their primary function related to lighting, are also decorative objects that contribute to the furnishing of a room. How, then?
Here are three fundamental questions to ask yourself before choosing a table lamp.
What will your table lamp be used for?
One of the most frequent mistakes when choosing a lighting source is not to consider its intended use in the first place. If we think only of aesthetics, our choice may not be totally correct or functional.
The best places to place a table lamp are:
- Coffee tables
- Bedside tables
- Dining rooms
In the sleeping area, for example, table lamps can be used for reading and help to make the room cosier, but also functional for the activities taking place inside. A desk or office lamp, on the other hand, should be one of the most important sources of lighting to allow concentration and work.
As for other rooms where several light sources already exist, such as the living or dining area, the introduction of some table lamps is a choice to give more flexibility and character to the room. A versatile choice in this respect could be Stone model by Bontempi Casa that combines practicality and design.
What are the right dimensions for your table lamp?
Another of the most common mistakes made during the decision-making phase concerns size: a table lamp that is too large may be elegant and attract attention, but leaves no room, for example, to place a book or a cup of coffee, thus losing its usefulness and becoming an obstacle. Table lamps have specific measurements, as they are designed to be placed on shelves and ledges and not on the floor. Its height should be proportionate to the table or coffee table, rather than the desk or bedside table on which they will be placed.
For example, Pop lamp by Bontempi is a glass furnishing accessory that is perfect for placing on bedside tables in sleeping areas, enhancing a setting with great charm.
Which designer table lamp to choose?
The beauty of table lamps lies in their ability to change the entire perception of a room. In fact, there are some furnishing accessories that can combine art and functionality, adapting to any purpose. An example is the Blow Lamp table lamp collection by Bontempi Casa, made of glass with sinuous lines and dimensions that adapt to living contexts, from the living area to the study.
