Inspiration board with different styles of table lamps

Lighting is hugely important when designing a room, both for function and style! Table lamps can create great focal points on a side table next to a sofa, paired on top of a console table, or proudly set atop nightstands. No matter what style or space you’re trying to create, there is a table lamp (or several!) to suit any situation. We decided to round up a few of our favorites:


A simple white table lamp is a no-brainer for any space because it can blend with just about any design style. Whether you want a more traditional silhouette or something a bit funkier, you can’t go wrong with a lamp like this. The Filament Design Cathrine Table Lamp features a textured base that adds a bit of interest, while the Illumine Bronze Table Lamp has a quirky, round cut-out base that can create a focal point no matter where it is placed. The Illumine 1-Light Table Lamp with an Ivory Finish features a traditional shape in a crisp, clean color.


Every now and again, you need to add a splash of color to space, and a lamp is a great way to make a dramatic statement. The Laura Ashley Ava Table Lamp in Pink, the Hampton Bay Walla Table Lamp in Green, and the Yosemite Beige Table Lamp all feature vibrant colors that can spice up a room.


While nontraditional, a square table lamp can be the perfect complement to any room with its sleek lines and beautiful textures, as is the case with these three options. The Illumine Walnut Table Lamp has a gorgeous walnut base with chrome accents. For a super modern look, the NOVA Parallux Reclining Table Lamp features a distinct wooden silhouette with a cut-out in the center — definitely a unique piece that is sure to make a statement. The Global Direct Woven Rattan Rustic Bronze Natural Table Lamp features a gorgeous rattan texture on the base, making it a beautiful addition to rooms that channel a more organic look.


Any room — whether modern, traditional, or somewhere in the middle — can use a touch of wood, just to bring a hint of natural texture into the space. For this reason, we love a lamp with a wooden base, like the Kenroy Derby Natural Wood Grain Lamp, the Hampton Bay Duval Weathered White Table Lamp, and the Filament Design Sonoma Gray Incandescent Table Lamp.


Lamps with a little bit of shine are perfect for small spaces because they bounce light around the room. The Illumine Luna Silver Leaf Incandescent Table Lamp has a little bit of texture on the base, and a square shade for a more modern silhouette. The Illumine Silver Plated Incandescent Table Lamp has a more elegant silhouette, bringing just the right amount of glamour to a bedroom, entryway, or living room. Finally, the Kenroy Mercurio Cracked Chrome Glass Table Lamp echoes the shape of a high-end designer light fixture with its mercury glass finish.
