Anything-But-Standard Table Lamps
Table lamps are highly practical, and sometimes this means they can do more than deliver lumens. These quirky and innovative lamps make a statement and add some unexpectedness to your space — whether they’re on or off.
Somethings to bear in mind when selecting that perfect modern table lamp:
- Size matters. The scale should complement other decorative elements in your space, especially the table it sits on.
- Layer the light. To accommodate different brightening needs, use table lamps in rooms that have support from other lights, such as ceiling lights.
- Consider the room and table color. Pale walls and surfaces will reflect the light, while dark colors and wood will absorb it, requiring more light output.
Here are a few of my favorite anything-but-standard table lamps:
A built in LED module allows users to adjust the white light temperature from 2400° to 3500° kelvin. The light control is conveniently positioned at the center of the base and acts as a dimmer.
Scott Wilson, the first American designer to collaborate with Artemide Lighting, created the Sisifo. A large LED illuminated disc gracefully balances on its articulating stem, easily tilts 360 degrees, and can be dimmed via a touch switch.
A built-in touch strip allows for effortless dimming. Simply slide your finger back and forth across the touch strip to turn the light on and off, and control dimming.
