Here’s another prime example of how to mix different types of lighting (directional vs. ambient): You’ll notice that the floor lamp in the room above falls under the "ambient" category because the fabric lampshade would delicately diffuse light around the space. This lights a room more thoroughly, as opposed to the task lamp on the desk. The hard metal shade means no light can escape except for in the direction it’s pointing (hence, directional lighting). These are really great lamp types for reading, working, doing anything hobby-ish. The light is strong and bright right where you need it (and basically nowhere else). You’ll want to be sure this type of lamp is low enough (or can be directed down) that it doesn’t blind you.
When it comes to style mixing there are certain micro trends you might start to see pop up. Some things just photograph well, like a white fur on a wishbone chair. One lamp style I’ve seen incorporated into some more traditional interiors that really adds an unexpected wow factor are these sculptural floor lamps.
