  1. One of the main advantages of table lamps is having a soft light that is directed only at a specific area of the bed, which makes it less invasive. This way, if someone needs to get up at night and turn on the light to get something from the bedroom nightstand they will not wake anyone up.

  2. Tastefully this has tremendous repercussions since we as a whole wind up possessing a similar home stylistic layout things and nothing is selective or extraordinary. You wind up purchasing a similar lamp that your neighbor purchased, that his neighbor purchased, etc.
