Bring light and a touch of warmth to your home with table lamps from Frontgate. Discovering the best accent table lamps for your space is simple with many unique and beautiful designs to choose from.

How Tall Should Table Lamps Be?

Usually, table lamps are meant to be eye-level with you when you're sitting down on a nearby sofa or chair, or specifically around 58" to 64" from the floor. Additionally, table lamps for the living room (or any other room of your home) should never be more than 1½ times the height of the table the lamp will rest on.

Where Should You Put Table Lamps in the Living Room?

Table lamps for the living room can work in a variety of places, regardless of their size. These are some of the most popular spots to put small table lamps.

  1. Next to a desk: One of the most popular places to set an accent table lamp, a desk is a place where you will most likely spend a large amount of time working or reading, so the extra light will be welcome here.
  2. Besides your television: If you or your family members often watch TV after the sun goes down, placing a table lamp near the screen will help reduce both glare and eye strain, making for a more enjoyable movie experience.
  3. In the center of the room: Cordless table lamps are great for setting in the middle of your living room on top of a distinctive ottoman to equally illuminate the entire area while adding a unique touch to the space.
  4. Behind the couch: Place a table lamp behind your couch to easily create depth, making the living room feel both larger and cozier.
  5. In an empty corner: If you have an empty corner in your living room, you can set one of our desk lamps on a table to brighten the corner and fill the space.
