    How many lumens does a designer table lamp need?

    That’s always a matter of taste, however, 300 - 400 lumens are sufficient for a table lamp to provide area lighting. After all, there is no need to light up the entire room - on the contrary, a table lamp is commonly used to provide cosy lighting accents, sufficient for leafing through a book, for example.

    Where is the best place for a designer table lamp?

    When investing in a designer table lamp, make it the pride of place in your home! A designer table lamp looks fantastic:

    • on a side table
    • on a chest of drawers
    • on a window sill
    • on a bedside table
    • and, of course, on a desk

    Tip: If you are right-handed, the lamp should to be placed on the left-hand side; and the other way around if you are left-handed. This makes sure that your hand will not cast any distracting shadows while working or studying. Also, please use additional lighting when you are working for an extended period. This reduces the stark contrast between the light desk and the darkness in the rest of the room and ensures that your eyes stay fresh and alert.
