What is the difference between a table lamp and a bedside lamp?
The table lamp should be tall enough for the bottom of the lampshade to come to the eye level of the person seated beside it. This will provide the best light without glare from the bulb. Bedside lamps should be in proportion to the bedside table and typically 19 to 21 inches from the top of the mattress.
How tall should a lamp be on an entryway table?
Typically, your table lamp should be no more than 1 ½ times the height of the table it will set on and the lamp shade should never be larger than the table.
