When selecting lamps for the living room, pick a fixtures that are good to look at whether the light is on or off. The lamps need to be placed where they will not obstruct the view. The height of most living room lamps is 26-34 inches tall. To determine the height without looking up, you may sit on a chair near the table where the lamp is and check if the shade bottom must not be higher than your eye level. Choose a sturdy-based lamp with adequate weight so it won't easily be knocked off with accidental bumps. Light sources in a room must be positioned 10 feet from one another.
Lamps are one of my favourite furnishings around my house and have been for many years. When I was a young boy my parents were not wealthy and struggled to provide for our family needs. Basic lighting was all our family had and we didn't give much thought to ambient lighting and we certainly never contemplated exotic topics like how to clean your lamp shades! No we just had a bare globe in each room and that was sufficient.
It is not necessary to stick with the same decor style - unless you want to make a strong statement about that particular style. If updating a traditional room - a contemporary or modern lamp may be the right choice. But, be sure to relate the existing decor in some manner - through color, scale, and/or material. Typically, conical shaped shades provide a more traditional look, whereas a drum shade provides a more modern look.
