How to choose a table lamp design
The color of your table lamp can follow the style of your home decor or contrast with the rest of the interior if it pleases your eye. Don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through – choose a color that resonates with you and lifts your mood.
Lampshades made of paper or resin are great options for giving the light a gentle, diffused glow. In general, we recommend choosing a diffused lampshade for soft mood lighting and a lamp with direct, non-diffused light when you’re looking for a table lamp for reading or working.
Key things to consider:Desk lamps usually have adjustable arms and adjustable lampshades so you can direct light where you want it. Diffused glass or delicate paper lampshades are most suited to creating soft mood lighting. Many modern table lamps have a range of technical features, like touch dimmer switches, timers, or rechargeable batteries. For bedside table lamps, a dimmer switch is handy for adjusting between bright and soft light with ease. ‘Touch’ bedside table lamps are easier to turn on in the dark. Many of our cordless or portable lamps are versatile enough to use both indoors and outdoors. Our range of outdoor lamps includes elegant patio table lamps and other smaller weatherproof Scandinavian lamps suitable for outdoor use. Lampshade color: Light-colored lampshades produce brighter light. Dark-colored lampshades produce dimmer light.
Where to place a table lamp
When the aim is to create a cozy atmosphere with soft, diffused light, place table lamps anywhere in the room where you’d like to add a soft glow. Place table lamps on window ledges, bedside tables, shelves, sideboards, and anywhere else with a flat surface suitable for a table lamp. Think about whether you’d like to direct the soft glow from a table lamp onto a decorative object. It’s a lovely way to draw attention to a particularly lovely object or artwork. And one last tip – if you place a table lamp next to a mirror it will increase the intensity of the light.
