Table lamps are functional and convenient. They are small enough to be able to fit on a table, dresser, desk, or other surface. They are lightweight and they light a specific and reasonably small area. They can provide ambient lighting to an area of a room, but they are most commonly used to be able to turn off the ceiling lights and might be used in conjunction with a floor lamp.
Table lamps can be used in living rooms and dining rooms. They can also be used in bedrooms and other living spaces around the house.
