A table lamp is necessary for many purposes. It provides the perfect amount of light to read a couple of pages of a favorite book at bedtime or watch an interesting talk show on television. The main purpose of table lamps is to provide enough light so that we do not strain out eyes. Here at homify, we could not pass by these little heroes. We decided that it was time to devote some time to the subject how to choose a table lamp. By the way, if at the moment you are in search of a suitable holiday gift, we advise to pay special attention to this article!

This table lamp brings a creative update the traditional silhouette of a lamp. The lamp consists of small rectangular pieces of wood stacked into asymmetrical pyramid. Although it looks a bit like a game of Jenga, we promise this lamp is perfectly stable!

Slightly curved

This table lamp is also made of wood. At first glance it may seem that the pieces of wood that form the basis of its structure are too massive and could block the light, but, once the lamp is turned on, we see that this is not so. The lamp takes the form of a slightly bent cone.  Its bright shine will look great in rooms decorated in a rustic or country style.

Rope lamp

This rope lamp is probably the most flexible lamp here. Thanks to the 1.5 meter cord, it can easily reach into every possible part of the room and will faithfully serve us during wherever we need light. This bright accessory can also adjust to a variety of stylistic solutions.

Four-legged friend

We are confident that among those reading this article, there are many animal lovers. In the homes of many designers also live four-legged friends, and watching them must inspire them to create whimsical design objects, like this clever, cute dog lamp.

Do not use this unusual table lamp as the primary light source, as the light from it is soft and dispersed. But it is ideal for the classic interior as part of the decor. A romantic dinner would be particularly fitting for the subdued light of this lamp.


This minimalist lamp will fit perfectly into any interior. Lamps should not always attract attention; sometimes it is appropriate to buy a lamp that will not distract from the more important elements of the decor. The lampshade of this lamp is made of aluminum for a thoroughly modern look.

Charming and dim

Table lamps do not always have to be bright. This model demonstrates that dim light also has its charm. Of course, this lamp is hardly suitable for reading, but it certainly will bring a modest glow to a corner living room or bedroom.
