Purple table lamps can be used as decorations that brighten an entire room. They can also be used to create a sense of a smaller private space within a room. For example, if you share a living room with a big family, but you have a favorite chair for curling up with a book, a small table lamp with a 40 or 60 Watt bulb next to your reading chair can do a lot to make that small piece of space seem like it's all your own.

You can find all kinds of beautiful and practical purple table lamps. In some cases, the fixture of the lamp itself is purple or heavily incorporates purple, and in other cases, you can take a basic lamp that costs just a couple of dollars and dress it up with a purple lampshade that you really like. Many stores offer a much greater variety of lampshades sold separately than they do of table lamps, so especially with a less common color like purple, that's probably your best bet for browsing.

Attractive Purple Table Lamps and Lampshades

Depending on the other colors in the room you're decorating, there are many different shades of purple table lamps that you might consider. Plum and lavender are probably the purples that are most easily and commonly used. They're slightly more subdued than many other hues, and look quite sophisticated next to beiges, creams, gray, hunter, navy, and natural woods.

A lot of the most popular and attractive styles of purple lampshades have floral patterns. You can even find lampshades with pressed purple flowers on them, since pansies, anemones and violets are all popular flowers for drying and look very pretty when softly illuminated. If you like the idea of your table lamp being a dramatic piece and a focal point in the room, however, there are shades of purple that are quite striking and can complement a room where other bright colors are used sparsely as well.
