**5. The statement table lamp
The interior designer accessory of choice, a stylish table lamp or floor lamp can turn an ordinary room into a comfortable, relaxing retreat. One of the brightest living room furniture ideas, lighting is the easiest way to create an ambience – and the right ambience can make you feel right at home.
When you’re choosing a table lamp, think about utility as well as style. Will you want to read by it, or do any kind of close work? Larger lamps can generally accommodate brighter light bulbs. Think about the proportions of the end table on which it will sit. A large table lamp on a small lamp table might look stylishly eccentric, but if there’s no room left for a glass of wine or a plate of cookies, then you’re most definitely sacrificing practical comfort for style. No room for an extra lamp table? Floor lamps take up less space, and tend to offer more illumination.
