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.
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.
Choosing a lamp for a bedroom involves picking one which may add beauty to the private room. The size of a bedside lamp usually depends on the height of your night table. Yet when your bed is tall, the lamp should not be over than 30 inches. When choosing a lamp for reading, the light should fall just right on the reading material. The base of the lamp must not be flimsy or bulky. There are other things which need to be placed on the table such as the alarm clock or glass of water so an adequate size of lamp base must be chosen. Bedroom lamps must be placed as close as possible to the wall to make room for other items.
