From task light to accent lighting the right table lamp can change the whole feel of your room. Elements to think about when considering a lamp are firstly making sure you have the right the right size and shape to suit your room and scheme. Large lighting in strong colours will, of course, create a statement whereas smaller more neutral versions will blend effortlessly into the background casting a gentle glow. The shape and colour of table lamps also have two personalities so be sure you are happy with how they look both unlit during the day and then lit at night. Whether you are a lover of dramatic designs or prefer a classic subtle style, we've picked a selection of the best table lamps that will offer the perfect ambience for you.
