Streamlined, cosmopolitan and avant garde, the new breed of table lamps is no longer recognisable as relatives of lighting of the past; indeed, some are works of art. A focal point for any room, a designer table lamp is not only amazing to look at but also functional. If you are looking to update a room or complement an existing minimalist trend, then why not take inspiration from our collection of contemporary table lamps?
The beauty of these lamps lies in their simplicity. Clean designs such as circles, squares and organic lines are the order of the day for this style of lighting. Simple, neutral or tonal colours are usually used along with a range of materials from brushed and polished chrome or metal, to wood, glass or plastics which enable the designer to craft a lamp and base into an innovative, sculptural shape. Different types of shade are used to aggregate the designer table lamp including up lighter shades and twists on the traditional, all of which are used to create individual effects. From all this choice, there is bound to be something to suit all tastes and budgets.
In addition, you could be forgiven for thinking that the focus on aesthetics may impede the practicality of some contemporary table lamps, but you would be mistaken. Many lamps of this style are multi-functional and directional meaning that they can be used to create a lagoon of light on walls to highlight items of interest, light a dark corner or be utilised as a reading lamp.
