Choosing a table lamp is not always easy as there are so many options. Although there are many elements to consider such as design, style and size when deciding which table lamp is right for you, the main element to focus on is the lighting that you require.
There are two main types of lighting, which are task lighting and accent lighting. Task lighting is the light you need to help you complete tasks where you could benefit from the use of extra lighting such as reading, working on the computer and writing. Accent lighting on the other hand is used for creating a certain ambiance and atmosphere.

Bedside Table Lamps
Bedside table lamps may be needed for either accent or task lighting. If you are the kind of person who enjoys reading a good book before bed or likes to work on your laptop in the bedroom, then you will want a bedside table lamp that can produce great task lighting to help you see while engaging in these activities. The Makenna is a great bedside table lamp that produces good clean lighting and the fabric shade helps the light filter through easily.
If you want a bedside table lamp that will help to create a warm or cozy atmosphere in your bedroom, then try the Bellevue. The lamp has a deep orange Tiffany style glass shade, so the light that comes through is represented by warm hues.
Glass and Crystal Table Lamps
Glass and crystal table lamps can be used in all rooms and often look good with all decor. The design of these lamps can create a beautiful and decadent lighting experience because when the light travels through or reflects off the glass or crystal, it can separate creating wonderful and exciting transcendent colors and shapes.
Lamps like the Recycled Glass Flute Urn would make a great accent light as the blue glass would add some lovely tones and colors to whatever room it was located in. The White Glass Candlestick Table Lamp would be a better option if task light was required as its pure white color is ideal for this lighting need.
Modern and Contemporary Table Lamps
Modern and Contemporary table lamps fit best in a contemporary environment among other similar home furnishings. These sort of table lamps often create a more unusual and interesting lighting than other types of table lamps due to the abstract and modernistic design. The different and unique shapes of the shades and body can cause the light to reflect in a variety of varying manners.
The Alita Stacked Spheres is a prime example as the shade is designed in such a way that the light will create a diverse and interesting appeal and atmosphere to the room it is situated in. The Dalou is another table lamp that will be perfect if accent lighting is what is wanted as the dark bronze finish off the shade will create a very atmospheric feel.
Tiffany Table Lamps
All of the Tiffany lamps are a statement in themselves and there are many beautiful ones to choose from. The Tiffany lamps are mainly suited for accent lighting as the colored glass and floral designs create a unique visual aesthetic as well as a unique nature of light.
The Tiffany Wisteria Table Lamp is a lovely blue glass shade that hangs down really low, mimicking the natural form and shape of the Wisteria flower. The Tiffany Hanginghead Dragonfly Lighted Base Tamble Lamp is another great option as the light radiates from the base of the lamp creating an atmospheric accent glow.

Traditional table lamps are primarily used for task lighting as they are practical and simple in style and design. Traditional table lamps have a timeless and regal aura about them that other types of lamp do not possess. The Alliana, Table and the Baron lamps can be used for both task and accent lighting as their light is clear but still warm and subtle.
