Whether you’re looking for a little somethin’ something to place on your end table or looking to brighten up your room a bit, a traditional table lamp can help.

Even better, there are a multitude of styles to add to your cart online — especially if your smaller space can't accommodate a floor lamp.

"We are seeing more trends in regard to lamp shades versus lamps, printed colorful pleated shades and Asian lantern-style globe shades rather than traditional linen or paper shades," Meg Lonergan, principal of Meg Lonergan Interiors and interior designer, told the New York Post. "We like styling a lamp on a nightstand with a stack of books, some photo frames, something floral or green in a vase — simple is better."

According to Lonergan, you’ll want to make sure the shade of your lamp is the right proportion to the scale of the lamp, as too small of a shade tends to make a lamp look awkward.

Additionally, the two extremes are in style: very small lamps or very big lamps, per Lonergan.

To help you illuminate your space in style, New York Post Shopping highlighted the best table lamps to pick up below.

For a less-than-$50 option that has a slim design coupled with smart features, the BesLowe Dimmable Touch Table Lamp is one we recommend. Conveniently, it's clad with USB ports to keep your devices at bay while you’re sitting on your sectional sofa.

With an on-trend glass and metal design, the Jonathan Y Duncan LED Table Lamp looks high-end, but is just less than $60 right now. With an oversize, match-all lamp shade and stunning silhouette, what's not to love?

Tap into the farmhouse look with the QiMH Touch-Control Table Lamps. Its lantern-style design and traditional shades aren't the only features to gloss over. With a USB port and quality make, they’re a two-pack worth the $110 price tag.

We’ve never seen a more chic table lamp than the Mara Faceted Table Lamp. Though a splurge at Anthropologie, it's one of those home finds that’ll last you for years on end, thanks to its hand-crafted blown crystal and photogenic body.

Shop the West Elm Wood & Ceramic Table Lamp that's a best-seller and unique enough to grab our attention. While still holding a classic shape, it adds a hint of vibrant color to your home — the perfect accent to a dresser.

The Easton Forged-Iron Table Lamp is a Pottery Barn best-seller, much ado to its open-concept design and gorgeous freestanding look. Aside from antique brass, it comes in a bronze finish — both of which nod to a unique sculptural feel that is bound to match your American-styled or modern home alike.

BRB, we’re running to the Port 68 Rousham Table Lamp — an ideal accent f or those who love fresh flowers. With a geometrical shade and hand-painted, curved body, it's a statement piece that’ll add much value to your home. Plus, it's readily available to order online.

Add some coastal flair to your home with the Decor Therapy Bryce Rattan Silverwood Table Lamp. For less than $125, it's great for smaller spaces (pro tip: open-faced lamp bodies make a room appear larger) and you can't pass up this nautical-leaning look.

For less than $20, the Xtreme Lit Mini Ball Resin Lamp is a Walmart best-seller and one to pick up if you’re on a budget and just want a lamp that does the job. We’re super impressed by its chic look, too (#designforless, if we’re being honest).

With unbeatable texture and a pearl-inspired look, add the Dakota Fields Anazagene Modern Ceramic Table Lamp to your cart for a duo that's one of the best values on this list. With a neutral shade to top it off, it belongs in a home decor magazine — and your home.

We’re mesmerized by the bling factor this lamp provides, which is reason enough to purchase the Regina Andrew Sanibel Ceramic Table Lamp. Though a splurge, you’ll feel like royalty when this well-made, well-lit piece is accentuated in your home.

Add some modern curves to your otherwise traditional table lamp with West Elm's Asymmetry Ceramic Table Lamp. It's all-white design is perfect for the minimalist, too, and we love its pure linen shade to complete the look.
