With so many options from which to choose, you may be left unclear about which lamp suits your living room. There are many factors you need to consider first to properly look at the effects and advantages of the pieces you're eyeing on. Look into the style of the lamp. You may need to choose the material and design carefully to match the color and accents from the room if you're following a certain theme. The material used must also compliment the main theme. The lamp base should match the conclusion well. That's an elementary rule. The color in the base should also blend well or produce a nice contrast with the lamp shade.
