As a good rule, take table lamp height + the tables height. That number should be between 58 to 64 inches tall. Because accent lamps are generally very small – it may not be possible to always achieve exact height, but it is something to consider when choosing your lamp.

There are two reasons to choose a small metal table lamp

You want the lamp to be a comfortable height when reading when you are seated on a chair or sofa, or when you are laying on a bed. However, accent lamps are not usually used for reading.

The other is to keep all the lamps at a near uniform height in the room which gives an overall balanced appearance.

They do however provide a nice warm glow to accent a dark corner, or to accent a fire place mantel, or a fine peice of art sitting on a table. They partition a large room into smaller spaces and provide nice definition to various areas of your home. Such as reading nooks or quaint conversation spaces. They provide a nice accent light when you need to read an important document or the latest novel. The most popular type of light great for nearly every room in your home.

How To Choose a Small Metal Table Lamp

What is the best height for a small table lamp?  Lamps should be between 58-64″ tall up from the floors surface. Table and floor lamps should also land in this height range. It provides a great design flow to your room.

If your table stands 30″ inches high,  a small table lamp should be around 28″- 34″ up to the top of the finial. You may want to test it when you are seated – you should see the bulb or socket.

Size and Shape

A small table lamp creates a beautiful ambiance and offers an easy way to add a variation into a room. Pair matching small table lamps on a night table in your room, mix and match the different styles to create an eclectic style. Add a whimsical animal-themed lamp to provide a fun feeling along with more traditional accent lighting.

Lampshade Size & Shape

When searching for the best size for your new accent table lamp, compare the size of your table to the diameter of your lampshade. The depth or width of the shade should be no larger than the narrow dimension of your table. Otherwise, the shade will hang over the edge of your table and won’t look good which is usually more of a problem for bedside lamps  or buffet lamps  where  depth of a night table is more narrow.

Lampshades are an important feature for the best accent table lighting – and they have an effect on beautifying your decor. In many instances, a cone shaped, or an angled lampshade displays more of a traditional feeling. A drum shaped shade or vertical shade will express a more modern or contemporary style. If you want to update a traditional accent table lamp – consider switching out your shade to a drum style shade.

Bedroom Table Lamps

Lamps for a bedside table, dresser or buffet table may need special attention due to the narrow surface – generally they are between 16” and 20” in depth.

Depth of Shade (front to back): Generally, 14″ – 18″
Height of Lamp for a Dresser Table:  Generally, 18″ – 27″
Height of Lamp for a Bedside Table Lamp: Generally, 26″ – 33″

Lamps with rectangular shades or round shades will end up being a good bedside lamp because they have a narrow depth,  they provide nice width to visually balance out the room on each side of your bed.

To Match the Style or Not To Match?

You might want to “match” your lamp style or “not match” your lamps style with the style of your small table  lamp  along with the appropriate furniture or architecture – What is the point?  Some decorators will make it a point NOT TO MATCH the lamps style with the furniture style.

Your lamps style does not have to be within a Traditional style, but you should keep it related to the context of the room in some manner – in terms of size, shape and color.

Diversify Your Lighting Types

Diversifying the types of accent table lighting is important when designing your space– change it up with floor lamps, chandeliers, table lamps, recessed lighting, and other forms of accent table light.  Don’t use all of these forms of lighting sources in one room– but, you just may use 2 or 3.
