Form refers to the sheer aesthetics of a lamp whereas function refers to how much illumination the lamp actually lends to a space. Lamps of course vary in size shape and style. The first step in selecting the perfect lamp for any room is making sure that the sheer size of the lamp matches the contours and dimensions of the room’s interior.
If you know that your lamp is setting on a table or desk that isn’t going to get jostled in the near future then you could safely go with a more decorative or lighter weight lamp. Also the ratio of the lamp’s size to the furnishing’s size does matter. Make sure that the furnishing on which the lamp is going to sit doesn’t detract from the lamp itself.
