Table lamps are a great source of light for any dark room. Avoid cumbersome wiring, installation, and hole drilling with a fun modern table lamp. Table lamps can be placed anywhere in the home, but these are some of our favorite spots, from the typical to the unexpected.
Table lamps look great on a bedside table – grab a matching set for either side of the bed! Or pick up a contrasting set for a fun design statement. Modern lamps come in a variety of colors and styles, so you can find one that perfectly matches your bedroom décor.
A lamp on a bedside table allows for custom reading light that is diffused and easy on the eyes, so both partners are happy. Modern lamps on a nightstand are an old standby, but why fix what isn’t broken?
Replace the traditional candlestick with a tall table lamp on your mantel! It creates an interesting focal point with matching table lamps on either side. Choose shades that pull in colors from the room's decor for a complete look. The great thing about modern lamps is that they’re not just light fixtures- they’re pieces of art!
You may think a ceiling light is the only way to go when lighting a dining room. But, in a cozy dining area, a modern lamp on a console table or buffet can create an intimate café feel.
Placing a table lamp in a surprising place is a great way to modernize your home, especially with a colorful, artistic lamp. You never know until you try!
If your bathroom needs extra light, consider adding a modern lamp. This can add much-needed light to a dark bathroom, especially in a small powder room. Add a touch of whimsy with a stylish modern lamp, placed on a counter, table, or on top of a radiator. You can never have too much light in a bathroom, so consider a table lamp for this space.
A table lamp next to a favorite armchair makes the perfect reading nook,and can provide some mood lighting during a party or movie night! Update any décor with a modern lamp; they look particularly striking next to vintage or traditional furniture. Lamps with USB ports can be particularly helpful here, for charging phones, tablets, or other electronics easily.
You can always “leave the light on” with beautiful modern lamps! With these unconventional styling ideas for modern lamps, your home will be brighter in no time!

Entertaining ideas for New Year's
With one holiday past us, now we can focus on welcoming 2016 in style! Take a cue from these ideas and go big...
Acrylic dining chairs and dark walls are a good idea year-round, but add some "cheer" type to the wall and you've got a party.
Garland for New Year's
If you don't want to make your cheer readable, try something fun like garland... This space above has lots of DIY garland that looks pretty sophisticated since they're done in black and gold. The variety makes it really fun.
Don't forget the yummy, no party is successful without it.
Balloons and gold furniture for entertaining
There's lots of fun companies out there creating chic balloon arrangements like these above. The tassels and confetti make them extra special. Instead of hanging chandeliers, this table decor features high-standing candelabras to make room for the balloons.
Share your favorite New Year's entertaining ideas below!

Modern wall sconces like our Robert Abbey Doughnut sconce should be mounted between 65-to-70 inches high next to bathroom vanity mirrors. But make sure you perform the glare test first!
Modern wall sconces lend timeless style to your home décor. But if you don’t install these fixtures right the first time, they’ll become a huge headache – literally.
For instance, you might install a sconce that seems a perfect height when standing. But upon sitting, you’re blinded by an annoying glare. Avoid this headache by employing our simple glare test.
Build your sconce template using these simple household items.
Create a wall sconce template using the following materials:
First, find a modern wall sconce style you like. Use scissors to cut out a template roughly the same size as the fixture's shade. Shape the cardboard to match the shades curvature. Finally, tape the flashlight inside the cardboard to simulate the light source.
Despite it’s crude look, this template will help you hang a wall sconce like a pro!
Voila! Your template is ready for action.
A bronze modern sconce by George Kovacs (left) and the cardboard template (right) you’ll use to pre-visualize the fixture.
Use your template to conduct a glare test in each room of your home.
If you can see glare from the flashlight, adjust the sconce position until it’s out of sight. Do this from a standing and sitting position.
Living room fixtures like the bronze Murano glass ET2 Cassini sconce should hang halfway between the ceiling and the floor to create a sense of balance.
The following are standard heights for mounting residential wall lights. Use these standards in concert with your cardboard “sconce”.
Hallway with 8-foot ceilings = 60-to-66 inchesHallways with 9-foot ceilings and above = 66-to-72 inchesLiving room = halfway between ceiling and floorMirrors and mantels = on either side, 65-to-70 inches
If you used the Cardboard & Flashlight trick, how did it work out? Did you use another method to judge height and placement of your modern wall sconce? We would love to hear your thoughts.
Modern entryway with table lamp and art
At the base of all holiday decor is a beautiful home. So when your family and guests arrive this week, make sure your entryway is in top shape!
This space above demonstrates all the basics you'll need for a stylish entryway, starting with a bold console.
Modern table lamps are standard for a console at the entryway, but if you love your lamp, maybe just try a new modern lamp shade for an updated look.
Beautiful decor surrounds modern table lamps
While the space at the top features a gorgeous piece of modern art, this entryway has a modern sunburst mirror surrounded by fabulous table lamps.
Don't forget the little things... Tiny decor can sometimes make a big statement.
Modern entryway with linear cabinets
This entryway has a very distinct, linear design. If you're style is more modern and minimal rather than feminine and glam, this is a good design direction for you.
Tons of storage makes it possible for this entryway to look so clean, everything can hide in that long cabinet!
