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.
Many interior decorators and home design stores compare lamps to pieces of jewelry - in terms of a room's decor lamps aren't the main attraction, yet they can pull together or pull apart what you're trying to achieve. The key to finding the right lamp for any room is looking for that special piece that combines both form and function.
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.
