Another good thing to consider is the amount of energy your lamp will use. Electricity costs are higher than ever and every thing you can do to lower your energy bill will be very beneficial. If your lamp is just for decoration and not required to light large areas than you should consider buying a lower watt light bulb to put in this lamp. The latest trend in modern floor lamps has been to have softer light bulbs that just emit a faint glow. If your are using this lamp for reading or for lighting an area than you will want to consider buying a high watt light bulb that has the power to light a large area. Usually a reading floor lamp will require a light bulb of at least 120 watts but other lamps can have bulbs well below 120. Also I recommend that your go with a compact fluorescent light bulb as these are much more energy efficient and will last much loner than a normal light bulb.
Recessed lighting is not so much decor-oriented as it is providing ambient light to highlight the room in the way you wish. They are best put to use in the ceiling, highlighting a chair you frequently sit in to read, or even a painting on the wall. Since they are recessed, the fixtures are not as noticeable, so there are less styles of this type of lighting available. Most are painted white to fit in with traditional ceilings, but you do have stainless steel options available as well.
