You can choose from a wide range of shapes and sizes, just bear in mind other dominate shapes that are in your bedroom scheme when you’re selecting the shape of your touch lamp.
If you’re buying a pair, feel free to mix colours and materials as long as it works with the overall look of your bedroom. If you want to achieve a unique look, you can try mixing two different touch lamps with similar colour or shapes and give the room visual symmetry and fun twist.
