Recently I've been obsessed with table lamps, floor lamp, chandeliers and pendants. Today I'm showing you my favorite table and floor lamps, because there are SO many awesome ones out there at the moment. AND, the best part? They're at all different price points! I think lighting is one of the most important elements in a room, because if the space isn't lit, you won't see what treasures fill it. Overhead lighting is not enough (especially if it is recessed cans or track lighting.) Technically, as I learned in design school, you want at least three of the four types of lighting in each room. Here are the four types of lighting, so you can be sure your room has just the right amount!

1. General {the overhead lighting that generally lights up the room}
2. Task {light that helps you perform specific tasks, like reading or cooking}
3. Accent {sconces, pendants, or recessed lighting that are used to highlight artwork, sculptures, fabric, or architectural details}
4. Decorative {primarily the ornamental chandelier lighting, wall sconces, candles, entry fixtures, etc.}


Have you found any awesome table or floor lamps lately? I always say they are the "jewelry" to a room. 

Happy Tuesday!
