Buffet lamps, otherwise known as ‘candlestick’ or ‘console’ lamps, are aesthetically pleasing lamps that usually stand two and a half to three feet tall.
Buffet lamps look their absolute best when displayed on buffets, dressers, credenzas, shorter chests, pedestals, night tables, or end tables. Modern buffet lamps combine the timeless beauty of thin candlestick lamps with modern lines, whimsey, and style.
We offer you the following high-quality modern buffet lamps:
Buffet lamps are designed and intended to be used in pairs. Whether they live on the same piece of furniture or sit adjacent to one another within the same room is up to you, both options can be equally attractive.
When placing your lamp on a table, desk, credenza, or dresser, ensure that lamp is sitting at a height that conceals the bulb for most peoples’ heights. Ideally, this is within the 58 to 64-inches tall range. The light bulb inside your modern buffet lamp should be about 75 watts per lamp if you have a pair. If you only use one buffet lamp, it is okay to move up to 80 to 100 watts.
Buffet lamps with lighter lamp shades will cast light out in all directions and brighten up a significant portion of the room. Lamps with darker lampshades tend to have a moodier effect, and not just because of their color. Darker shades do not let light pass through the shade itself nearly as well, so as a result, you’ll have most of your light pouring from the top and bottom of the shade. This creates a flamboyant look that can be appealing for many dramatically styled rooms.
With a little planning, LuxeDecor modern buffet lamps can take a room from functional to functionally fabulous.
