Lamps can be the star of a design, or a subtle touch, use them on end tables to flank a sofa or on a console table behind the sofa. Choose from a variety of shades: grays, creams, blacks, whites, and beiges. These toned-down hues are far from boring—wood, shell, rope, and metallic finishes can provide eye-catching texture to amp up any look. This week we wanted to share our favorite off-the-shelf table lamps. We've divided them into a few different categories, take a look.
We love the look of white and cream lamps. They lend themselves well to contemporary and traditional design. White blends well with many surfaces, from stain, paint, and stone to concrete- so virtually any place you put a white lamp will look great!
In minimal design there aren't a lot of superfluous details, so carefully selecting pieces for a room so that you have fewer items making a larger impact, becomes an important aspect of the design process. This is where selecting a more structural lamp becomes important. Table lamps with an intricate base that can be a conversation piece on their own, shine with this type of design style.
Modern design captures simple clean lines, so the design of modern lamps should follow the same principles. Embrace a style that uses solid finishes, natural elements, or shapes. Keep it SIMPLE.
Classic lamp finishes include brass, glass, blue and white porcelain.
