For instance, as a general rule of thumb it's better to have bulky lamps in areas that receive high-traffic or have kids and pets running around. This is because the heavier the lamp the less prone it is to topple over and smash into a million pieces.
The more ornate the lamp, the simpler the shade should be and vice versa. Pleated shades look more traditional while flat shades work with almost any decor. However, pleated shades are hard to keep dusted, so smooth shades are an optimum choice.
Among modern lamp styles, materials like embossed porcelain or crystal can lend a fancy look to your space whereas having a lamp with a wood or polished metal base can add charm and texture to virtually any room. You will want to ensure that the texture and color of your lamp's base doesn't jar with the furnishing on which it's resting.
