Where should I use table lamp?
Table lamp can be used in any space, though they are most often found in bedrooms, living rooms and home offices next to sofas, chairs or beds. Although they can act as a primary light fixture, they are most often used as supplemental lighting for more detail-oriented tasks. They also work well in hallways, stairwells and near doorways since they ensure no one trips and falls while walking. In the end, lamp placement is a personal preference: They can and should be placed wherever you need extra light.
How many bedside table lamp do I need?
Typically, most rooms need two table lamp, but a larger, open concept space may need many more. To test out your lamp requirements, turn off your overhead light and turn on all your current lights. Walk around the room and see which corners lack light, and determine whether or not those spaces need coverage. It’s great to have different levels of light, so even if your main fixture covers good ground, you might want an additional just-in-case options too.
How do I determine the right size table lamp?
Pay attention to the height and shade width of potential table lamps: You want it to be both functional and proportional to the room’s decor. When sitting on a table, be sure that the lamp is tall enough to cast light over your shoulder for reading. If it’s more of a decorative piece, you want the height to complement its surrounding furnishings. As for the shade, remember that a narrow brim will cast direct light while a wider one will allow the light to shine on a larger area. Determine where you want the light to reach to decide what’s right for you. In addition, be sure the shade contains the lamp’s bulb and socket since these should not be visible.
What style lamp should I buy?
Since table lamp are merely accessories, they should complement your already-there furniture pieces and overall style. Tiffany table lamp and pieces with gold or glass bases are often more traditional, while sleek metal or uniquely shaped fixtures are often more trendy and contemporary. If you’re looking for a cheap fix, try swapping out the lamp shade for a bright, patterned alternative. For those that love a mismatched look, use two different options, but be careful: Although it’s great to have variety, they also might clash.

Harvey Guzzini is often mistakenly thought to be the name of a lighting designer active in the 1960s and 1970s. But in fact the label belongs to a lighting manufacturing company, which was founded by six Guzzini brothers - Raimondo, Giovanni, Virgilio, Giuseppe, Adolfo and Giannunzio - who were inspired by the 1950 film Harvey starring James Stewart. Compounding the historical record even further, it seems that the Guzzini company rebranded many times in the 20th century, going by, at various points, Harvey Creazioni, Harvey Guzzini, Guzzini, iGuzzini, and Illuminazione Guzzini.
Harvey Creazioni was originally founded in 1959 in Recanti (on the east central coast of Italy) by Raimondo, focusing on the production of copper-plated decorative objects. Four years later, in June 1963, the six brothers joined together and established Harvey Creazioni di Guzzini, expanding production to include pendant lighting, sconces, and lamps, floor lamps. The brothers employed architect-designer Luigi Massoni—who was introduced to the Guzzini brothers by leading plastic importer Maurizio Adreani—as head of design, branding, public relations, and advertizing.
Famous Harvey Guzzini designs include Massoni and Luciano Buttura's Mushroom Table Lamp (1965), as well as the in-house designed Arc Floor Lamp (1968), Faro Table Lamp (1970), and Toledo Table Lamp (1973). Studio 6G, an interning design team, developed the collectible Clan Lamp (1968); and designers Ermanno Lampa and Sergio Brazzoli were responsible for the Nastro Series (1970), Orione Pendant (1970), Sirio Table Lamp (1970), Alba Floor Lamp (1973), Albanella Table Lamp (1973), and Alf Series (1976).
