Need help Picking Style for Console Table Lamps
January 15, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I like the lamps currently pictured but not with this console, will be moving them somewhere else in house. I am struggling with what shape/material/color would work.

I like the shape and scale of the lamps you've chosen. It's just the spindly metal that competes with the design on the front of the console. Plainer porcelain glass gourd lamps (perhaps in a fun color) would look great. Stools could also be wider...or get a third one to fill the space better.

Since there is already an open stle filagree on the table, I'd prefer a lamp base that is closed and solid. Is there a color in the picture that you'd want to repeat? I can't see much detail in this photo. I would center the entire arrangement on that wall and remove the high back chair. The balance will be much better if you do so.

Thanks for feedback. I added picture of adjacent living room. Blue lamp will move to another room and be replaced by one of my current console lamps. Would lamps like these purple ones work, am unsure if this would be too many colors? Flowers in art piece above console are purple.

green would be pretty too ! Under the console table, for some extra storage and pops of color, I have even done a pretty oblong trunk or (2) smaller square trunks

Love the soft colors. It seems u are choosing table lamps rather than buffet lamps, the lamps need to be smaller , taller and thinner. Not a focal point but a compliment to the room. I.ve seem some great buffet lamps at Pier One and, believe it or not, JCP. If you want to introduce the rich purple go for it---but in accessories like pillows, or vases and bowls or candles. I love the tranquil, soft theme you have going! Good job! You need to find substanialy larger stools, like ottomans to go under the console table

These would look great on your table, I like the semi-black lamp shade
