Know Everything About The Beauty of Contemporary Table Lamps
polished chrome bases. Frosted white glass shades. Clusters of
filaments lit by LEDs. These are not your father's table lamps!
Indeed, table lamps have come a long way since any old light bulb
stuck on a piece of wood with a dusty shade could be passed off as a
fashionable piece of home decor.
contemporary table lamps are works of art. New lamps tend to be built
from metal and glass materials. Most lamps adopt a minimalist color
scheme. The bases are often black or grey or white, with the designer
letting the polished or brushed look of the metal come through to the
final product. The lamps are then topped off with a white or cream
shade to complete the look. On the other end of the scale, designers
- using the same materials - have taken advantage of technological
advances to create innovative new table
lamps. Using these new production techniques, designers can use
the same materials to create colorful and playful table
lamps. One trend is making table lamps look like other objects,
such as a glowing block of ice or even Chinese takeout boxes. These
designs are perfect for children, or the young at heart.
Aside from the
materials and the color schemes, designers generally create table
lamps with simple, pared down designs. The emphasis is on sleek
and streamlined looks, with simple and unbroken lines. Especially
notable is the movement away from traditional table lamp designs,
with a base, stem and light shade. Indeed, the creation of new
materials with unique lighting abilities has allowed designers to
experiment with amazing new designs. And at the farthest point from
simple designs are the trend towards table lamps that more closely
chandeliers with the use of glowing strands of plastic and light.
All this focus
on aesthetics is not to imply at all that this new crop of lamps is
not highly functional. In fact, it is exactly the opposite.
Functionality is a central concern. Modern
table lamps take exceptional pride in providing the very best
light for reading or writing. This means creating an adjustable light
that can either focus or diffuse the light, depending on your needs.
table lamps have entered an exciting creative phase, spurred on by
the development of new materials, and the participation of countless
young and exciting designers. If you are looking to update your
interior design, a contemporary
table lamp can be an important starting point for any changes.
