Buffet lamps, often also referred to as console lamps or candlestick lamps, are essentially a taller version of the table lamp. Traditionally used, and as the name suggests, to provide light over buffet tables they are now more widely used due to their decorative properties.
Buffet lamps generally measure between 32 and 36 inches in height, have a narrow base and a slim column which is why they are also known as candlestick lamps. They will also normally have a smaller size shade. The base dimensions are typically around 12 inches, which is similar to that of an accent lamp and they should take a 75-watt bulb or less depending on the width of the shade being used.
Although intended for the buffet table they are now used throughout the home and are perfectly suited to bedroom dressers, sofa tables, console tables and pedestals. When interior decorating and using buffet lamps in rooms in conjunction with table and floor lamps, consider the total heights of all the lamps. Ideally, when you look across your room horizontally you want the tops of all the lamp shades to be roughly the same height rather than undulating up and down.
