Why We Love Dining Room Buffet Lamps
Slightly taller than a table lamp yet not as tall as a floor lamp is a buffet lamp. In dining rooms where a buffet table is present or some form of storage cabinets, a buffet lamp is the perfect option to add a touch of accenting light. These lamps play well with existing fixtures in the space too, be that a modern chandelier, multi-light pendant or pair of wall sconces.
This style of table lamp offers itself as a complementing light fixture in spaces of the home like the living room, entryway and of course, the dining room. The dining room is home to a standard furniture set including a table and chairs, as well as a console table, buffet table or storage furniture. Sitting atop the storage furniture is where you will find this style of lamp, providing an elegant source of ambient, often warm illumination. And whether your dining room is contemporary or fits on the traditional side of the design spectrum, you'll find just the right accent lamp here.
A Buffet Lamp for Every Style
Lamps for dining room buffet tables are inclusive to almost every aesthetic including classically decorated dining rooms to spaces inspired by mid-century modernism. Wrought iron looks and darker toned dining rooms can be complemented with a buffet lamp from the Hubbardton Forge collection. Hubbardton Forge prides itself as the American Blacksmiths and works with handforged iron to deliver fixtures any home will be sure appreciate. Linen shades and contemporary finishes are found in the selection of lamps from George Kovacs and turn to Masiero if it is a luxury fixture you would prefer. A buffet lamp from AXO Light will go a long way in complementing your modern furniture choices and if you need to fit a retro theme, look to a lamp from Jonathan Adler or the iconic George Nelson Bubble Lamp collection. Lastly, for a fixture that blends in well with just about any dining room, look to the options from Visual Comfort.
How to Choose the Best Buffet Table Lamp
Although a buffet table light is a form of complementary illumination to the dining room, you'll want to be mindful of introducing the right lamp to your space so it can easily blend in with your existing decor. First, pull out the measuring tape to take note of the buffet table or console table you have to help guide you in your selection. You'll want to check for height, width and proximity to a power outlet to determine the best lamp for the table. Once you have a size in mind, you can then refine your options by the lamp's color and finish for both the fixture's body and shade. Keep in mind some lamp shades can be rather large while others are much more petite. And be sure to review the lamp's required light bulb type to be prepared when the lamp arrives.

Before you can choose the right buffet table lighting for your dining room, you may actually need the buffet table! Although much slimmer and smaller compared to other accent tables, console tables add a lot of noticeable character to the dining room while providing a functional spot to help keep things organized during a dining occasion. And the dining room isn't the only place in the home where one of these lamps is welcomed. In entryways, buffet lamps provide a welcoming invitation to your guests, find themselves right at home in the living room and they make the perfect companion to clothing dressers and credenzas in the bedroom.
