Form refers to the sheer aesthetics of a lamp whereas function refers to how much illumination the lamp actually lends to a space. Lamps, of course, vary in size, shape and style. The first step in selecting the perfect lamp for any room is making sure that the sheer size of the lamp matches the contours and dimensions of the room's interior.
If the room has table surfaces that are sufficiently large, the table lamp may be the best choice. Of course, the lamp should not block a view - so coffee tables are typically not the best surface choice. In areas where the horizontal surfaces are narrow such as a buffet table, then the smaller buffet table lamps are usually the best. A narrow and tall lamp such as a candlestick lamp, works well on a narrow surfaces.
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.
