The all and mighty portable lamp. Many may have forgotten it’s duty and pledged illuminating purpose, but not those lighting buffs who truly grasp the importance that great portable lighting serves. No…not us. We are here to enlighten you (pun intended) on why you shall never forget the addition of portable pieces in your home. Here are six great examples of how the right lamp can enhance your current illumination situation!
THE FAVE FLOOR LAMP
A fresh take on an old favorite, floor lamps can definitely add some style and scale to your room. This Adrian lamp from Uttermost is constructed of solid cast steel, and finished in a beautiful aged gunmetal. Boasting 150 watts of light through its wide, white linen shade makes it a perfect addition to brighten up that gloomy living space. Pro Tip: Place this near or behind a sofa or chair in the corner of your room. The added wall surface will act as a reflective launching pad, providing more lumen spread throughout your interior space.
THE BEDSIDE BEAUTY
A great bedside table lamp should be as beautiful to look at as it is functional. The Castilla gold leaf lamp from Dimond Lighting is perfectly sized for a small nightstand area and is equipped with a 100 watt medium-based bulb, so you will have plenty of light for that late night read. Its pretty proportion is adorned with a soft gold finish and clear glass body, making it a stylish and transitional choice- perfect for most any decor.
THE ARTFUL ACCENT
Sometimes your space just needs a little something special, a statement piece that really highlights your style. The Hubbardton Forge Encounter lamp is just that- an artful accent that just happens to be illuminated with LED technology! This organic sculpture is innovative, artisanal and an amazing example of how impressionable the right lighting can be.
THE MODERN-DAY TASK LIGHT
Well, it’s no surprise that Hubbardton Forge made a second appearance on this list. We just couldn’t help but include their new Henry table lamp as our favorite modern-day task light. Hand-forged iron and a spun metal shade give this piece a strong industrial vibe. Its modern, yet masculine aesthetic would add delight to any desk area.
THE BOLD TABLE LAMP
Crazy about color? We have the lamp for you. The Pike table lamp from Robert Abbey is big, bold and brimming with color options! The smooth ceramic shape and modern lucite base make it transitional enough to grace almost any space. And, with all of those colors to choose from, who could resist? Our favorite shade? Peacock, of course!
THE STUDIOUS SERIES
We are in L-O-V-E with the new Kirby series, from House of Troy. We couldn’t just pick one version to put on this list because we think the whole collection is noteworthy. Available in 5 different finishes with integrated LED technology, this task lamp series is fresh, fun and the perfect desk companion for your student- or student at heart!
