There are several types of light fixtures such as bedside lamps, dresser lamps, desktop lamps buffet lamps, , floor lamps, sconces, and chandeliers. Below are a some tips for choosing different types of lamps.
CANDLESTICK TO CONSOLE
Buffet lamps are often called console lamps, or candlestick lamps and are taller lamps standing taller than table lamps. Typically they will stand 32 to 36 inches tall, measuring them from the bottom of the lamp to the tip top of the shade, or the finial. Buffet lamps sport a narrow base, and often look as though they are a thin candlestick, with a smaller shade.
THE LAMPSHADE MATTERS
A Buffet lamps shade usually has a base measuring around 12 inches or less. Buffet lamps typically uses a 75-watt bulb or less, and typically depends on the width of that shade. A couple of buffet lamps will illuminate approximately the same amount of area as one 150-watt table lamp.
SMALLER IS NOT LESS
Small buffet lamps will stand 24 to 30 inches tall, sometimes they’re referred to as candlestick lamps due to their candlestick shape. The smaller style typically uses a 60-watt bulb. Smaller Candlestick lamps that stand less than 24 inches is considered an accent lamp.
SEE IT ALL COME TOGETHER
Buffet lamps should be used on top of a buffet table, on pedestals, console tables, a credenza a chest, on dressers, or on a sofa table, etc. When you decorate with a buffet lamp, the height of a buffet lamp and the surface it is set on should be around 58 to 64 inches range. This is important to use them in an area where there are floor lamps and table lamps. The idea is, you want their eyes to move upward through that room from the tip top of that lamp shade over to the other lamp without looking up or down too much.
If you place a buffet lamp in your dining room, or on top of a console table, and there aren’t any other light fixtures like floor lamps or table lamps to compare the height, it’s proper for them to be a little bit taller. Just be positive they aren’t too much taller – that you can see the bottom of the lampshade or the exposed bulb.
