A small segment in a very large product category; let’s see together the best models offered by ProduceShop.
Be careful: don’t call them desk lamps! Table Lamps, in fact, are born with a completely different outlook; where the former focused on functionality, these focus on design.
There are furnishing elements that often leave aside their primary function to give way to design; the lighting sector, among the most useful, is full of similar cases. If we take table lamps as an example, we will immediately realize that we are dealing with aesthetic objects, which “secondarily” illuminate rooms.
In line with current trends,offers various models in the table lamp section; eclectic, classic, industrial and Christmas models. The most popular features? You’re sure to find them in our catalogue! Let’s take a look at some of the top sellers together.
Table VS Desk, Design VS Functionality
Many people confuse a desk lamp with a table lamp; although the pieces of furniture they are placed next to are similar (and in some cases interchangeable), we are actually talking about quite different objects: in terms of functionality and construction.
Let’s start by saying that a table lamp is actually designed for different types of support and the table is kept as a conventional name, since, in ancient times, it represented the centre of the room (if not of the house). Today this kind of lamp is also found on sideboards, chests of drawers, consoles, bedside tables or bookcases. These are decorative elements, in which the aesthetic side takes the upper hand, and the light most often serves to give atmosphere or contribute to the ambience, but not with primary importance.
On a desk, the lamp must first of all illuminate the work surface; they are usually articulated lamps, dedicated to practicality and functionality. You can see how they are decidedly opposed to the former.
Some useful information
Before making any purchase, it is always better to check the characteristics of the product we want to buy because this way, we will not risk regretting a wrong purchase, saving time and money.
In particular, when we talk about table lamps (but more generally about lighting), we should take into consideration at least these factors:
- materials: normally metal is the most used for the stem/body of the lamp, although nowadays wood and plastics (polyethylene or polycarbonate, both translucent) are becoming more and more popular. Glass is also a popular choice just as it is fabric for ceiling lights;
- power supply: while many lamps have to be connected to the mains with a cable and a socket, now many have a batteries and also USB rechargeable;
- Bulb: When choosing the light, and its intensity, consider the type of bulb. It can be normal (incandescent), although LEDs are increasingly common today, for reasons of economy and efficiency. Also, think about whether you need white (cool) or yellow (warm) light.
