Control Table Lamp

Need a little bit more light? Consider Muuto’s Control Table Lamp. Its E27 bulb sits on a rectangular metal tray with one control knob. It’s slender enough that it will fit on windowsills and narrow shelves, so you could place it almost anywhere for more illumination in dark and lonely spots around your home.

Odis Sconce

Add another wall sconce to your lighting list, because the Odis is well worth considering. A circular steel shade hangs on the wall, encircling an exposed bulb. It’s both simple and graphic, which suits our needs just fine, thank you very much.

Luci Color Essence Lamp

The Luci Color Lamp could be a fun addition to your household, as it’s collapsible, waterproof, lightweight, and completely solar. It displays 8 colors (red, green blue, purple, yellow, cyan, orange, white) and takes 7 hours to charge. Use it in the pool or in the bathtub for fun (maybe get a couple, just so there’s no fighting over one) or string a few together for party lights. There’s also the Luci Pro Light ($36) which has a two-way 1A USB Port and lasts up to 50 hours.

90 Degree Wall Shelf by Frama Denmark

How do you make your home look a little more edgy? Adding a few metal pieces will do the trick, and this 90 Degree Wall Shelf provides an unadorned light bulb as well as a small ledge for your current reading material (or other accessories). Could you make something like this yourself? Maybe, if you’re not afraid of bending metal and adding electricity. The rest of us will have to settle for spending a little money on this particular lighting option.

Guidelight

This little guy will be the perfect accessory for your garden soirée or camping trip. With a simple twist of its head, you can change the light from an ambient glow of the base to the focused work light at the top. It’s wireless, mobile, and very energy efficient; it’ll give you ten hours of high-intensity light and 150 hours at the lowest setting. And, it’s now on sale!

Cymbal Pendant

Well, what do we have here? It’s a very simple pendant that uses the light bulb as support for the shades. Aluminum disks diffract the light and trick your eye with reflections of its environment. Does it remind you a little of the Grain Pendant by Brendan Ravenhill? It’s the same sort of idea, and a little more affordable at that.

‘Pion’ Lamps

A lamp by Bertjan Pot, you say? And it’s not too terribly expensive? Well, sign me up. The ‘Pion’ lamps for Wrong.London and Hay have a shape that references a pawn chess piece (‘Pion’ is the Dutch word for “pawn”). Crafted from a stitched composite ‘Nomex’ paper, the lamp gives off a soft, diffused glow that’s sure to set the right ambience in any room. The shape is supported by a steel frame and carbon-fibre rod, and, don’t worry, the shade is both UV-stable and flame resistant. Suitable for floor or table use.

Torch Lantern

Yep, it’s a flashlight and a camp lantern, but it would look just fine left out on your beside table. Not too bad, eh? The Torch Latern’s collapsible head lets it function as either a flashlight or a lantern. For a focused beam, keep it screwed tight, or unscrew the top to spread the light out in your tent or room. And, get this: it has a bottle opener (in its base, I think?). Also, check out the smaller Stashlight.

Superlight LED Table Lamp

Maybe there’s nothing particularly wrong with your current task light, but does it pivot smoothly? Does it offer a 0-100% light level adjustment with just one hand? The Superlight LED Table Lamp does both, thanks to its 3-axis range of motion and ergonomic light switch. Plus, a 90 degree lens rotation gets light exactly where you want it.

Currently on sale, fyi.

Ada Sconce

The Ada Sconce is a versatile little light, for its shade is made of two adjustable reflectors on friction hinges. This means you can move the shades around in many different ways to direct the light exactly where you wish. Fans of Charlotte Perriand might recognize a little of her CP-1 Sconce in this design, as this light was inspired by that exact design. And, another nice tidbit: the Ada sconce is named for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which dictates that sconces in hallways must not protrude from the wall more than 4”.

Filter Table Lamp

Perforated metal may not be your first choice for a table lamp, but it sure “filters” the light in a lovely way. Two metal discs sandwich a light bulb, giving you an edgy option for a dimmable lamp. Available in Blush, Ochre, Oxblood, and White.

Nood Lamp

Uh, whaaaat? Tell me you’re not tempted to buy a bunch of these semi-insane Nood Lamps, because then I won’t want to snap every single one up for myself. They’re made of cast porcelain, with a good jolt of crazy color/pattern to wake up any dull corner. You won’t be accused of being boring with one of these guys in your house, that’s for sure.

Dewy Floor & Table Lamp

It’s hard to feel bad when you’re next to a dewy glow. These blown frosted glass domes let off a bright, cozy bubble of light, just like a new day. We could all use a fresh start, couldn’t we? Especially with the state of things. Maybe this little lamp will switch our brain on towards a happier mood even on the dreariest of days… we can hope.
