In the early 1900`s a large Tiffany Lamp cost around $100 with the smaller lamps costing around $40. The price of a beautiful Tiffany Lamp hasn`t changed much in the last hundred plus years if you take into account the rise of inflation. When you consider the cost of either style of lamp as they did a hundred years ago consider also their lasting timeless beauty. The years of enjoyment you will receive from a Tiffany Table Lamp or Tiffany Accent Lamp may be well worth the investment.
Second ask yourself where you plan to use the lamp. If you plan to light a big room with an undecorated wall a small lamp may feel unnecessarily tiny. A tall lamp may be more appropriate. Of course if you would like to place a lamp on top of a bookcase in your study a small lamp may work perfectly. Third ask yourself if you can live with a particular lamp style over time. Some lamps are distinctive and may look interesting in a store. However oddly-shaped or with protruding angles some lamps` unique style can quickly wear out their welcome. Remember you will see it every day. If you grow tired of looking at it the lamp is likely not doing its job. Take the time to consider how you will feel about your lamp 5 years from now.
Choosing a lamp that is the same style as the rest of the room can make a strong statement about that particular style. On the other hand mixing styles can add an interesting complexity to a room. Contemporary or modern style lamps can be successfully introduced into a traditional setting. Conversely a traditional style lamp can look very nice in a contemporary or modern setting. However when mixing styles it is usually important to make sure that there are some other unifying accessory elements in terms of style.
First ask yourself if you are only person that will be using the lamp on a daily basis and if you will use it often. A lamp must be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. If you plan to do a lot of reading at a table in your home office you may need a stronger light from a short lamp. Alternatively if you want to create a warm mood in your living room a softer light from a tall lamp will be more effective. Further your office may need a lamp that is short casts a lot of light and doesn`t attract unnecessary attention to itself.
