Table Lamps

Table lamps are indoor lighting fixtures that are placed on common room and dining room table for ambient illumination, eating, working or simply as a decorative piece.

Tips on table lamps:

  • Determine in advance how much of the table you want your lamp to light up. The taller the lamp the more area it will light up.
  • Remember that effective lighting is best done via layering, which means coordinating your table lamp with other types of lighting such as floor lamps, downlights and natural light.
  • Use your table lamps for effect! This means choosing one that makes a statement and looks great in the room.
  • Table lamps are great for adding warmth to a room. Consider a lamp with an exposed LED filament globe. They will give a warm glow without overpowering illumination
  • By using an appropriate table lamp, you can reduce the overhead lighting of the room, thereby giving your home a much softer feel.

Types of table lamps:

  • Classic table lamps: these are the classically shaped lamp, with an upright base and a bell shade.
  • Buffet table lamps: these are similar to the classic lamp, but have a narrower base.
  • Torchiere table lamps: these are tall, upright lamps with a bowl-shaped fixture at the top.
  • Tripod based table lamps: these have a three pronged stand, often styled after a classic theodolite tripod or a theatre spotlight.
  • Ceramic table lamp bases: Europe imported masses of Chinese ceramics between the 16th-20th centuries. Is was enormously popular to repurpose vases and ginger jars to lamps, particularly as electricity came into fashion. This tradition continues today with Chinese style ceramic table lamps.
  • Touch lamps: These table lamps are designed to illuminate when the base is touched.
  • Arabesque lamps: Often ceramic, these table lamps have intricate designs cut through. Reminiscent of the North African/Arab influence of geometric design.
