Comparing ’Different’ Types of ’Light’ Fixtures
TABLE LAMPS: FUNCTIONAL SCULPTURES
A table lamp is an adorable accent and makes any surface display more interesting by playing with height. Kind of like adding a Space Needle to the silhouette of a cityscape. Whether antique or novelty, this type of lighting is an instant fix for style and brightness. Pleated or fringed, floral or striped, linen or Tiffany glass — just plug in a table lamp for a small, easy jolt of personality.
The shape of the shade can also make your lighting more dramatic: delicate curves for depth or a smooth rectangle flush with other clean lines for a contemporary chic look. Read more tips on How to Buy Lamp Shades for pinning down details like size and material.
FLOOR LAMPS: STATUESQUE STUNNERS
Maybe you’re in a basement apartment that’s not only completely devoid of sunlight, but has a landlord that forbids any hardwiring. Bring in a floor lamp. Like its shorter friend, this type of light fixture can simply be plugged in to infuse color, texture, and shape into your home. A floor lamp just has a bit more dominance than a table lamp, making it a focal point.
A floor lamp with long, adjustable, Medusa-like arms would be perfect behind your favorite armchair for enlightened reading. A floor lamp with built-in shelving is helpful when you need to reach up to turn on the light after you smash your alarm clock. If you have the space to make a statement, go for it.
SCONCE LIGHTING: LITTLE LUMIERES
wall sconce projects light upward or downward, like a miniature spotlight attached to the wall. Because this fixture doesn’t cast a wide glow, it’s not a primary source of ambient lighting. It’s just a strategic little torch to holster wherever you need it.
Maybe you want to flaunt a few paintings in the hallway or flank your mantel like a low-lit home theater. When you’ve only got enough space to hang lights on the walls and not the ceiling, these little beauties come in handy with their small, steady shine.
