There is no one way to get the right lighting. When designing a lighting scheme, it’s all about creating different layers of light that will work together to create a beautiful and functional living space. Layers that provide the proper amount of accent, ambient, and task lighting can be achieved through a combination of ceiling lights, table lamps, floor lamps, or wall-mounted fixtures. Today, we’re focusing on how to successfully create one of the integral layers using table lamps.
The perfect table and lamp combo can do wonders for living rooms, foyers, bedrooms, and home offices. When choosing a table and lamp for a space, consider the height of both pieces in addition to the style, materials, tones, and textures. One good rule for them is to make sure that the neck of the bulb will not show from any seated or standing position in the room. This will prevent any glares and help to optimize comfort as you focus on mixing and matching colors and textures.
Here are some of our favorite table lamps from Gabby for achieving gorgeous layered lighting.
The Angelica Eclectic Lamp can light up any room in chic vintage style with its uniquely sculptural base and antique gold and pearl accents. This lamp adds tons of aesthetic interest without too much visual weight, allowing spaces to look elegant and still feel light.
In a stunning marriage of old and new, the Coffield Shagreen Lamp boasts a fresh transitional look. Clean lines and a modern silhouette ensure a sharp and sophisticated finish while dark gray shagreen and tarnished copper give the fixture an antique touch.
Either of these transitional-style lamps would look fabulous on the Julie Side Table made of durable cream-colored vellum and antique gilded accents. It’s both refined and eclectic and can add personality and interest to any interior style. We can picture the Julie Side Table, the Coffield Shagreen and two occasional chairs making the perfect sitting area for a transitional style living room.
Our Cabrit Parchment Side Table would also pair wonderfully with one of these lamps. Unique materials are once again leveraged in a cutting-edge design to create this alluring interest piece. Finished in blushing vellum, the Cabrit table offers sleek, understated elegance packaged in an unexpected hourglass shape for the perfect amount of style and interest.
As you can see, our designers are passionate about creating one-of-a-kind designs using high quality materials, timeless forms, and fashion-forward ideas. This is because we believe that homes should be designed to not only be beautiful and functional but customized to express your personality and individual tastes.
