Your table lamp often takes center stage on a table or desk. Consider its style, profile, shapes, and colors. Use your selection to accent a pattern or tie together complementary colors.
Some table lamps require specialized lightbulbs, while others enable you to swap out typical incandescents for more environment-friendly fluorescents. Take a look at the bulb requirements before you make a purchase.
