A buffet lamp, or candlestick lamp, is a tall lamp with a shade that is commonly found on dining buffets and narrow console tables. They usually have a thin base with a thick, sturdy bottom. They are taller than the average accent or table lamp.
Buffet lamps are well-known space-savers that can also be elegant accessories that add light to a room. They can be used as reading lamps. They are available in a large number of styles and are made from a variety of materials, including brass, nickel, natural wood, jade and silver. Styles vary from extremely simple to intricate.
