The study or reading lamp is a more discreet type of table lamp. It is usually more of a task-oriented lamp than a decorative lamp. It is smaller in size which makes it a lot easier to place in work tables or any reading surfaces. The base is designed to be light and thin while the bulb offers just the right illumination that your eyes need for working on fine tasks. Some study lamps are made with extendable, bendable arms that allow the user to precisely direct the light to the point where it is needed. This makes the functionality of the lamp all the more impressive; allowing it to be used in any kind and size of space.
Always remember that when you are using table lamps for decorating, the most important consideration is positioning. Where you place the lamp affects both its aesthetic and functional capabilities. And, don’t force yourself to make the most out of only one lamp. Use as many lamps as necessary. Using several lamps is actually a necessity when the functional part is used by more than just a single person. For task-related lighting, one lamp should be used by each of the individuals doing the task. The lighting that a variety of lamps provide also makes for a creative look for the entire room. Different combinations of lights can either make the room more cozy and subdued or they can make the room a lot livelier and engaging.
