Table lamps are one of the centrepieces of any room. They can help to greatly accentuate any furniture and wall decor while immensely contributing the the ambiance of these particular environments. This modern era has brought some unique, quirky and downright bold table lamp designs into the marketplace, so let us have a quick look at some of the most memorable.
Bap Table Lamp with Large Base
The iconic design of this lamp was created through the vision of artists Alberto Meda and Paolo Rizzatto. Notwithstanding the ability for this lamp to interact with the light from a computer screen and lessen stress on the eyes of a user, the sleek and spartan design makes this fixture perfect for minimalists. It is created of aluminium and thermoplastic components, thus lending it the strength and flexibility to be moved into nearly any position and remain parallel to the desktop. Not only is this fixture deceptively sexy, but it represents a great way to save money with energy-efficient table lamps.
Tiffany-Style Sunflower Accent Table Lamp
As opposed to a minimalist or modernist style, this lamp was inspired directly from the famed works of Louis Comfort Tiffany himself. The lampshade is comprised of over one hundred individual glass pieces; each bordered in copper foil and meticulously soldered together by hand. The result is a multi coloured light show that can add a bit of flair to an otherwise monochromatic atmosphere. If we then combine this lampshade with the beautifully designed wrought iron stand coated in bronze, a truly timeless elegance can be brought into any room with this lamp.
Atomic Yellow Table Lamp
For those who wish for an abundance of light and colour atop the crispness of chrome, this lamp will certainly not disappoint. This design is another excellent example of how to save money with energy-efficient table lamps in style. The curvaceous chrome-plated stand rises nearly one foot from the desktop and presents a bulb that is surrounded by a cascading yellow glass lampshade; much in the appearance of a sleek, translucent umbrella. For those who need a lamp that provides adequate lighting while taking up minimal desktop space, this design is perfect.
The Spun Light T-Table Lamp
This popular design by the company Flos stresses simplicity and fluid design. It is fabricated from machined aluminium and combines a bold character with the sleek design of a sandblasted pressed glass upper diffuser screen. The resultant soft light emitted is an excellent compliment to the daring curves of the chrome-plated stand and neck below. The manually operated dimmer switch included is yet another example of providing the user with the ability to save money on energy-efficient table lamps.
These four unique and memorable designs represent some of the pinnacles in modern design for table lamps.
