How to Choose Rustic Lamps
Lighting is one of the most important factors to consider when decorating – and yet it is often overlooked. A lamp adds to the visual aesthetics of the space, and are the perfect way to introduce color, pattern, texture and interest.
When choosing a rustic lamp, the goal is to bring the outdoors in. These lamps enhance every type of dwelling including western homes, rustic cabins, log homes, mountain lodges and southwestern abodes.
Rustic lamps often incorporate a combination of varying materials such as wrought iron, wood as well as copper and they provide the opportunity to add charm with natural elements.
Decorative and free standing, accent table lamps often have a sculptural quality that draws the eye and makes a powerful statement. They are also the perfect way to introduce a soft and welcoming glow. Great lighting design is all about balance, and a few carefully chosen table lamps can go along way of creating ambiance.
Floor lamps are also another beautiful option for additional lighting. They also can be used as an accent piece and to illuminate corners. Floor lamps can easily be relocated and they’re perfect in the living room as well as small spaces like entryways and halls.
Just like music and temperature, the lighting can make—or break—a room. It’s important to weigh your options carefully and ensure the lamps you choose coordinate with the surrounding décor.
Rustic Bedside Table Lamps
Bedside table lamps are extremely popular due to their proximity to the bed. They assist in creating an intimate and cozy atmosphere as well as providing task lighting for reading.
Lamp bases can be mixed and matched with new shades to refresh the space. You can choose a lamp that coordinates with your chosen color scheme for the room or go for a more neutral look. You can also use a lamp to introduce a new splash of color to the room.
When pairing a lamp with a table, it’s important to take note of the sizes of both pieces. They should appear visually balanced and complement each-other.
