10 Perfect Lamps for Your Home
Lamps are ancient tools. According to historians, the first traces of these tools date back to 70,000 BCE, when it was just a hollowed-out rock filled with absorbent material soaked in animal fat. People also used shells, bronze spikes, and pottery shaped like a shallow cup. Later lamps were made of metal like bronze with a central burner. So, lamps tell the history of human evolution, from simply wooden torches to the contemporary and fashionable chandeliers.
From table lamps to floor ones, the light comes in all directions and with different intensities. There is a lamp for every taste, budget, and home. The perfect lamps exist. Let’s have a look at 10 of them, true pieces of interior design.
5 table lamps for your home
Let’s start with tools for your home office, library, or living room.
For the lovers of contemporary style: the Extrude, made of concrete. Nothing says “contemporary” like cement, LED light, and a variable dimmer. This particular piece of decor can have a rough finish, which makes it look rustic. Or you can choose a smooth Extrude, perhaps more elegant. Each of these lamps is custom-made, so the artisanship is just as high. Thanks to the adjustable dimmer, you can also select the light’s strength.
If you are a bit extra: the “Invaluable” auction piece Inspired by the beauty of the peacock, this piece of design looks like art. It features the colors of the animal’s feathers, bright and luxurious thanks to the 24 tiny jewels. Made of stained glass art, this lamp is authentic and unique. While it might not suit every style, being “extra” never hurt anyone.
For a touch of rustic: the Sutton Rattan by Anthropologie. After all, “rustic” doesn’t have a negative connotation. On the contrary, it might be a way to add contrast to your rooms. This option by Anthropologie is made 100% by rattan with brushed brass-finished metal. You can also choose between the green and natural color, perfect for every style.
If you love patterns: filled with color yet elegant, the African-inspired table lamp by Bespoke Binny adds a touch of cheer to your design. It’s a boho table lamp that features an African wax print drum lampshade and geometric pattern. A statement to glamour.
