Table Lighting

Hamill Lamp

Looking a little like an ancient artifact, the Hamill Lamp consists of a hammered brass shade, a blackened steel base, and the necessary socket, bulb, and cloth cord. There’s nothing complicated about it, yet the materials will add an extra layer of warmth- and maybe a dash of historical relevance- to an interior. There’s a sconce as well.

The Butler

Say hello to the Butler, a curved brass lamp with a hand turned oak tray. Clamp it on to a tabletop or shelf for an ideal spot to keep necessities- perhaps your keys, wallet or phone? It always helps to have just one area for important things; set it down in the same place every time and it’ll be there when you go to get it (if you don’t live with anyone else).

Rayleigh Table Lamp

This lamp is crazy pretty. Turn it on, and you see a spectrum of neon hues refracted by several prisms. Turn it off, and you have a sculptural piece that quietly shimmers as light moves around it. Made from optical grade dichroic glass and a 3W LED bulb (bonus: energy savings).

Peek LED Table Lamp

The Peek LED Table Lamp is a cute little thing, isn’t it? It swivels 360° around its heavy metal base and has an adjustable shade for the right diffused-yet-direct light. Simply touch the tip of the stem to dim the light to your preferred brightness. Look closer and you’ll see that the base has a concave top that can hold smaller items like paperclips, jewelry, and coins. Could it be the perfect companion to your desktop or bedside table? I’d say so.

V-LITE Lamp

Clever! This V-LITE Lamp doubles as a wall sconce- just hang it up by its foot/feet when you need more space on your nightstand or desk. The perforated metal shade gives off a wonderful pattern on the wall, as you can see, and is adjustable to get light right where you need it. Should we be surprised that this is a Commune and Atelier de Troupe collaboration? Nope, it’s too good to not have had several brains involved.

Kangaroo Light

Uh, who doesn’t want a flexible, portable, interactive light? Because you might want to check out the Kangaroo Light before professing that your lighting needs are fulfilled. Control it wirelessly with your device via the app, and play around with moods and sound sensitivities and light alarms. Pretty fun, right? It could be a good nightlight for little ones, or even soft lighting for outdoor activities like camping.

Helios Table Lamp

Workstead is fast becoming a favorite lighting source, which is no surprise when you consider their array of fixtures with adjustable orientation. The Helios Table Lamp, a newer design, has a large brass dish positioned opposite a single light source. This brass dish partially obscures and reflects the light, echoing the movement of larger celestial bodies and their occasional eclipses. Choose from three varieties of stone for the base, including Carrara, Green Marble and Travertine.

Concrete Lamp by Menu

Here’s another smallish lamp, and this one is a charmer. A round concrete base holds an oversize glass light bulb with a little brass button to control brightness. That touch of brass keeps the design dressed up- think of it like a hint of expensive jewelry on an otherwise utilitarian outfit. A friend of mine who has one talked about it with reverence, and, as this friend knows good design and quality, it’s a safe bet you won’t regret adding it to your abode for the right sort of ambient light.

Picia Table Lamp

Cute, right? The Picia Table Light is a smaller sort of lamp, you know, the kind you would tuck into a corner of a small writing desk or nightstand. With a soft, natural cork base and a clear blue glass shade it will easily make friends with its surroundings. The shade measures in at 16cm diameter (that’s 6.3 inches) and the height is 23cm (9 inches)- be sure to take your measuring tape out so you’re not surprised how small (and cute) this lamp will be in your home.

Dalu Table Lamp

The diminutive Dalu Table Lamp won’t be the biggest light in the house, and that is exactly its charm. It’s just over 10 inches tall, so it’s perfect for beside the bed or tucked into a dark corner for just a bit of illumination. You might recognize a sixties era sort of vibe, and you’d be spot on, as this is a re-edition of the original designed in (drumroll) the sixties. Molded thermoplastic resin gives the Dalu its shape; choose from black or white.

Upcycled T-Shirt Lampshade Kit

Yes, the Bowie image makes this Upcycled T-Shirt Lampshade Kit way more appealing than it probably is, but you could possibly have some fun with this, especially if you have a t-shirt that you never wear but refuse to donate. Or, might this might be a great project for a favorite kid during these long summer days? Just make sure they use their own t-shirts instead of your prized concert relics. What’s included in the kit? Adhesive, 12″ diam. top and bottom lampshade rings, molding stick, binder clips, lampshade glue, and an instruction booklet. Your favorite t-shirt = lampshade. That’s the idea, anyways. Good luck.

Framed Table Lamp

The Framed Table Lamp by FX Balléry gives off an indirect, warm light that creates just the right sort of ambience for your evening activities. Its outlined shape provides a modern, sculptural element that’s ideal beside the bed or on a living room’s shelf or credenza. Energy saving LEDs won’t gobble up loads of electricity either, so consider that when checking out Framed Lamp’s price tag.

Fine 500 Desk Lamp by FX Ballery

How about an ultra thin LED lamp to light your workspace? The Fine 500 Desk Lamp by FX Balléry has a delicate outline yet it packs a punch when it comes to light output. You get 1200 lumen, which equals out to around 75W, with only 15W of energy consumed. Let’s all approvingly nod our heads at that bullet point, and then admire that it has four preset light levels and a “Green mode” option with a sensor that turns on and off depending on movement.

Enevu CUBE Light

Why do you need a small LED light? Beats me, but judging by the product shots of the Enevu CUBE Light, I’m sure you’ll be able to find some uses. It’s splash-proof, so you can take it out by the pool or add it to your camping gear. There’s a color changing mode for those ‘mood’ settings you may or may not be fond of, as well as a hanging hook should you need it.
