“You can never have too many lamps in a room! Lighting equals happiness, therefore lamps equal happiness.”
~Maria Killam, True Color Expert
I agree with Maria! Lamps are considered a decor item. With so many choices to compliment your style, why wouldn’t you invest in lamps—both table and floor lamps? Lighting is an essential ingredient when decorating a room.
Should lamps in a room match? For a formal look, two matching lamps on either end of a console table looks perfect! (See picture. Don’t you love all the lighting in this room? You can’t see all of them, but there are two table lamps, two wall chandeliers, a ceiling chandelier and a picture light. I love how this room turned out.)
Some people do not like symmetrical, so different lamps that don’t match is OK, as well. Different lamps will add character to a room. It’s all a personal choice and I’m happy to help you find the best choice for you.
