Settle Down To a More Restful Night's Sleep

Select the Perfect Bedside Lamp


Settling down for the evening to surf the web, read the newest best-seller or relax with needlepoint while watching television? Selecting the perfect bedside lamp is the key to enjoying these activities! Putting a bit of thought into your bedside table lamp can make a huge difference, so here are a few expert tips!


1. Consider the height of your bedside table or night stand. You’ll want the lampshade to shield direct light from your eyes while still providing plenty of illumination for your reading or craft work. The bottom of the shade should be about a foot above the top of your mattress. Generally, lamps that are 24” to 28” tall overall will be ideal but bedside table heights can vary so measure.


2. Choose soft light bulbs and softly diffused shades. You’ll want your light to be relaxing while still providing plenty of gentle illumination for the entire room, as this will generally be the last light in the room. Soft light bulbs avoid harsh brightness and assist in winding down for relaxing sleep.


3. Style is the most easily overlooked quality of bedside lighting. Take advantage of the multitudes of styles available for bedside lamps and make yours a reflection of your individual taste and personality. It is easy to underestimate the comfort provided by a beautiful lamp. Give yourself the gift of a lamp that will give you a happy relaxed feeling when you use it every night.

At LampsUSA, our experts are ready to assist you with selecting the lamp that will have you rushing to peaceful relaxation at the end of a busy day!

Transitional Lighting Notes: Et2’s Inca Collection

The first, and perhaps most important, thing to say about transitional lighting is that it's highly subjective. That's actually the fun of it. Nothing is truly tied down, if you will.

The transitional style home has taken the interior design and decorating world by storm. Transitional decorating ideas seem limitless, due to the now common molding of contemporary and traditional styles (shapes, finishes, materials, and fabrics).

What's Hot: Aged Brass w/Matte finishes
They said brass was dead. Over and over this was the cry in the lighting world. People felt shame over their shiny brass fixtures and went running to more exotic (read; non-brass) finishes like satin nickel, rubbed bronze, brushed pewter, oil-rubbed bronze, satin this, or Tuscan that, & on and on.

I have some good news for those of you who never gave up on the allure of brass. IT'S BACK with a vengeance. Maybe not exactly as you remember it, but it's definitely back. This is a great example of rediscovering a classic, and giving it a modern signature. Today's brass is aged & weathered, like it's been through something. That makes sense, because it HAS been through something... namely years of neglect from lighting showrooms coast to coast. Who's laughing now?

Hello, my name is Cody, and I am a reformed design junkie who likes to work strange hours. Sound familiar? Yeah, that's par for the course for many of my colleagues. I chat with my peers on a weekly basis.

Lighting… Better than Just Flowers

Flowers are great. They liven up a room with color, show love, and look good in certain spaces. This is about more than just flowers though.

Get the ambiance right with ambient light...

Ambient light is the most pleasing, in that it’s soft, even, and easy on the eyes. Ambient light helps fill a space with a warmth, and an at home feel you’ll want to set the tone for any romantic evening.
