Living room: This is the area that you and your guests will be spending most of your time. As rule of thumb, ensure that the lamps you install compliment the look of the room. There are many types of lamps that you can go with: floor, table, and accent lighting. You should use floor lamps as the main sources of ambient lighting and table lamps for filler light. If you have photos or art pieces that you would like to be seen at night you should use accent lighting.
Lamps for home office: Just like in your workplace office, you need to have an uncluttered office space for you to work effectively. To have plenty of working space you should place only one lamp on your office table. To maintain a simple look go with lamps that have a simple style. You should also ensure that the lamp compliments the home décor. This is to create a less obstructive and distracting look.
If you're going to use your lamp mainly for reading, you would want a fairly sheer lampshade that doesn't trap light. A thin-fabric lampshade should do. As a general rule of thumb for reading and table lamps, you will want the lampshade to be just over half the height of the base. If the lamp is going to be set on the floor and let off more light, a lampshade that's only one-fourth the base's height would be better.
