    What characterises a modern table lamp?

    Modern table lamps not only need to look stylish, but they have to look timeless too.

    The best way to do that?

    • Clear lines
    • Minimalist wood, metal or chrome design
    • A basic colour palette consisting of white, grey, black or silver

    Sticking to these tried and tested guidelines means, not only will they retain their contemporary look, but they’ll look new for decades to come.

    It’s why so many lamps from years gone by still look modern today 一 like the Birdy table lamp, created in 1952!

    What functions can modern table lamps have?

    Modern desk lamps have moved with the times, which means when you’re thinking about the light you want, you also need to consider the additional functions it has to offer.

    If you thought all you needed was something to brighten a room on a dark, winters night, think again, our lamps include a range of different functions, including:

    • USB ports for mobile phone chargers
    • Qi charging surfaces
    • Colour temperature adjustments
    • RGB colour changes to adapt to different lighting levels
    • Dimmer switch and touch options

    With our range of additional options, you’re in for a cosy evening in, every night of the year.

    Which bulb is the best to use in modern table lamps?

    Modern table lamps need advanced technology, which is why most are installed with LED bulbs or an in-built LED light board 一 the latter of which allows for the most futuristic designs possible.

    LEDs are also extremely eco-friendly, saving up to 90% in energy when compared to standard bulbs, and they can last up to 25 times longer too.

    How many lumens does a table lamp need?

    The lumens required for any individual lamp depend entirely on its intended use.

    For example, if you’re using a lamp to read, a 300-400 lumen bulb should suffice. However, for a desk light, it’s recommended 1,000-lumen bulbs be used to allow the user to complete various tasks over a wider area.

    If you’re unsure what the lumen figures mean and would prefer the answer in watts, well… lighting is no longer calculated in watts. Lumens are used as they provide information about the brightness of modern lights and lamps, not their wattage consumption.
