Table lamps from the best in Scandinavian design

Table lamps bring a beautiful combination of practicality and aesthetics to an interior. As well as lighting its surroundings, a table lamp can often be an eye-catching, sculptural element of interior decor, even when switched off. Table lamps are particularly needed on bedside tables and desks, and they cast a pleasant, warm light when placed on a shelf or as window lights. A table lamp can also be a bright reading light or spotlight which can be directed downwards at a tabletop or towards a wall. Cordless or portable table lamps can be used outside – our range of outdoor lamps includes many table lamps suitable for exterior use.

The light cast by a table lamp is affected by its structure and materials. White opal glass shades or atmospheric Asian paper shades create dimmer mood lighting and window lighting. Good reading lamps, study lamps and desk lamps, on the other hand, have an adjustable arm and shade for directing light where you prefer. Modern table lamps can also have a range of technical features such as a touch dimmer switch, timer or rechargeable battery. In bedside table lamps, a dimmer is very handy for adjusting between bright reading light and soft mood lighting. Design lamps are made from materials designed to stand the test of time. Our collection includes table lamps made from a selection of luxurious materials such as marble, brass, mouth-blown glass and wood.
