Lamps play a key role in any form of decoration when it comes to the perfect lighting. Unlike a torchiere, neon lights and LED spotlights provide us with a homely, pleasant and deliberately light, for extra cosiness. And why stop there? The design options of lamps are plentiful, and you are guaranteed to find one that is fitting to your tastes. You can choose to have a lamp that either dominates your room, or sits subtly in the corner! We have seven examples to give you an idea about what is on offer these days and that will also give you some inspiration about the potential a good lamp has in your home.

Industrial lamps

The industrial look is just absolutely ‘in', and this even applies to smaller accessories lamps. The range of cool lights in the industrial design is so great that you’ll be spoilt for choice. From the theatre spotlight on Photo Studio Tripods to cool pagoda lamps, this kind of equipment is readily available and at a good price. The pictured lamp is by Onkel Edison

Elegant lighting

This elegant floor lamp makes a diffused effect for an especially pleasant form of lighting. The special feature: due to the composition of many shards of glass, the light is refracted, refined and thus creates a fascinating play of shadow and light patterns on the surrounding walls.  

Modern lamps

For all fans of modern, minimalist styles, this lamp is a real must-have. These futuristic lamps don't just look extremely cool, they're also completely flexible—with the ability to swivel in any direction!   

Unusual lamps

This lamp is perfect for all lovers of fancy designs and unusual looks. It’s somewhat reminiscent of a lone leaf, hanging on the branch of a tree. It would certainly make its mark in any home.

Whoever likes retro and vintage stands would strike gold with this lamp. With its practical articulated arms and the original crackle finish, it’s the ideal nostalgic part in any retro or industrial inspired apartment.

Playful lamps

For all who like its colourful drive, here's the perfect feel-good lamp that woos all with its bizarre but charming nature, despite the exceptionally chaotic form of its lampshade. 

Driftwood lamp

Now the question arises, table or lamp? But no longer! In this model, from rustic driftwood, furniture and lighting go hand in hand to create a particularly striking piece. One of a kind.
