Top 10 residential table lamps
2 Dec 2022 News

Residential table lamps provide direct or indirect lighting to highlight areas of activity within larger living spaces. Table lamps, despite their namesake, are designed to be placed on working tables, floors, shelves, bedside tables ,and other furniture. They are produced in a wide variety of shapes, materials ,and finish colors, and can offer a range of lighting effects.

 

Historically, electric residential lamps consisted of ceramic or metal bases which supported a single bulb under a pyramidal, conical or semi-spherical shade. Today, lamps are produced with bodies made from materials ranging from plastic to wood, glass, stone, aluminum ,and other metals, which support bulbs and shades of all forms and sizes. Some table lamps are designed as heavy sculptural objects; others as lightweight and portable.

 

Several table lamp products make use of shades, diffusers ,and other accessories to soften the light’s intensity, to increase its spread, or to make the light directional. Other products - often those with a more industrial aesthetic - proudly display the bulb without any shade protection whatsoever. Whether intended to light household spaces for reading, working, talking, or playing, the table lamps listed below are among the best on the market:
