Which table lamp should I choose?
With a big selection to choose from comes a big decision – which table lamp should I choose? Which table lamp will work best with the rest of my decor? To make it easier to work out which table lamp is best for you here are a couple of points it would be worthwhile to consider…
What other lamps are in the room?
As a rule, table lamps give a muted and often downward-facing light – and therefore limited – light. Therefore, it’s important to consider the other light sources in the room. If the room is large with few light sources don’t count on a single table lamp make much of a difference. Table lamps are best at light small areas, like corners, so if you want to avoid lots of ‘islands’ of light you’ll need another stronger light source to fill the room. Pendants are a good solution in these situations. If you’re only lighting a small room, it may well be enough to have a single table lamp along with a floor lamp.
What can I use a table lamp for?
A table lamp’s function can be divided into two categories – mood lighting or working/reading lighting. Even though lots of table lamps give good light for reading many other work best at creating a mood, so it’s important to choose the right lamp for the job. If you want to create an intimate, cosy atmosphere perfect for relaxation and deep conversations you should consider table lamps like Flowerpot, Pineapple, Lightyears or Zoolight. On the other hand, if you need a good reading light that won’t cause eyestrain have a look at brands like LIGHT-POINT, Normann Copenhagen and Foscarini.
