Table atollo replica are extremely convenient to work with since they’re attached to a cord with a handy switch. Most old homes have the original light switch for the living room fashioned for 135 cm wide beds that was pretty much the norm for a couple of decades ago. Lamps like this weren’t always so chic, but now they are, especially if you can find them in warm rustic styles. They’re also very easy to install, especially if you do it yourself. However, you do need to take these things into consideration before deciding on what kind of lamp to buy.
Most table lamps, even the ones that come with the taller head or mantel shades, have two parts: the lamp shade and the base. The base is usually a simple rectangular shape made from metal. Sometimes there will be a cord coming out of one corner with an outlet plug. The shade is a fabric or wood panel that comes up from the base. The main thing to consider here is how large you want the shade. Usually, they’re only about three inches thick, but you can get smaller ones if you want.
Some table lamps these days actually come with the ability to transform themselves into different heights, or side shading, so you can get the type that will match your current bedside lamp perfectly. There’s something called the co-leveling function, which allows for the table lamp to regulate its height to make sure it doesn’t shade your bedside lamp. This function also makes a good decorative touch for a table lamp next to an air conditioned pedestal. If you don’t have a special co-level requirement and don’t mind buying a cheap version, then this feature is perfect for you.
When shopping for a decorative table lamp, you’ll also find some that comes with a matching lampshade. A matching table lampshade fits perfectly over the already existing decorative shade on the lamp. You might find this would make a great decorative accent piece, or if you’re not worried about matching colors and such, you could go with one that has no other purpose than to accent. There are some lamps that come with built-in decorative shades that can be changed out easily. In this case, a matching lampshade might not be necessary, and a standard shade would work just fine.
With the ability to use table lamps as task lighting, or decorative lighting, you have a lot of different options when it comes down to getting the right one for your situation. Some table lamps are simply there to do their job, providing ambient light for whatever your need it for. Others are there to illuminate a more specific area, such as a game table, where you can illuminate the ball or the board to add more fun to your game night.
For those that have kids, you may also consider the height of the lamp. Table lamps can go very low, or very high, so they’re great for use at the bottom of a bed, next to the bed for children, and very elegant around the table for adults. If you choose a low style lamp, you’ll want to keep in mind that you’ll probably have to turn the light off after using it. Some high style lamps, particularly ones with multiple bulbs, have a way of illuminating more than one room at once. It can make a lot of sense to think about the height of your lamp and what it will do before you pick one out.
