More on the function side of things, you will want to ask the following question before installing any lamp - what's the purpose? Are you planning to use this lamp to heighten your decor? For reading? If your goal is to find the best reading lamp for your space, illuminating the entire room or sending light up to the ceiling probably won't be important.
In addition to ensuring that lamp compliments the look of your house, you also need to consider other factors. One of the factors to consider is the color of the base and broad shade. The two should have the same color or be of complimentary colors.
If you know that your lamp is setting on a table or desk that isn't going to get jostled in the near future, then you could safely go with a more decorative or lighter weight lamp. Also, the ratio of the lamp's size to the furnishing's size does matter. Make sure that the furnishing on which the lamp is going to sit doesn't detract from the lamp itself.
