Table lamps are an essential decorating element for a cozy living space. Whether snuggling up close to one to read your favorite book or adding much needed light to your workspace, table lamps add the perfect amount of soft light. On top of functionality, table lamps are one of my favorite decorating elements! So here are some of my favorite table lamp picks from around the web!
