Editor's Notes

March 28, 2019:

You might be considering buying a table lamp for a variety of reasons - to complement your decor, add mood lighting to a common area, to read in bed, illuminate a desk, what have you - so we endeavored to add selections to suit every whim. You'll find rustic and industrial options in the Kenroy Home Free Fall, Sofia Cottage Accent and Annie Traditional Tapered, while contemporary decors will benefit from the Floating Square Modern and Brightech Maxwell. The Brightech Maxwell has the added feature of an integrated USB port for charging and powering a litany of devices.

We also favored lamps that can support LED light bulbs, so consumers have that eco-friendly, time-saving option at their disposal. Many are dimmable (Franklin Iron Works Bronze, Seaside Village Crystal) and compatible with smart switches (Kenroy Home Free Fall, Stone & Beam Ceramic), as well as 3-way bulbs too.
