Behold one of the most perfect objects, the contemporary white table lamp. Simple in color and form, able to “work” in almost every interior and while not only stunning, always functional. Summer has something to do with my latest obsession with white and because it’s after Memorial Day white rules my interplanetary color chart. Fine, I know nothing about astrology, but I do love white chic living room lamps.
Cute, right? This Virgil low white shade accent lamp reminds me of the one above in that super-modern space. This type of contemporary white lamp is more about ambiance and mood. This is not a good choice for working at a desk, but a great choice to impress your friends. Loving the retro pull cord.
The design of the Eloise White Wire Table Lamp is rooted in a traditional ceramic form, but wholly modern with the use of a unique material. I love it, but just don’t let Joan Crawford know you are beginning to like wire.
A similar shape but made of white covered resin is this Michelle White Table Lamp. I get a cool Jetsons reaction to this lamp. I love this contemporary look for a bedroom or living room.
The Robert Abbey Simple White Boom Desk Lamp packs a real punch. Styled like a full size floor lamp, this little guy is a gorgeous addition to desks as well as night stands giving you the ability to raise, lower and direct light just where you need it.
For a white lamp with artistic flair, why not the Possini White Coral Oval Shade Table Lamp? Just when you think this lamp is an elegant classic, it surprises you with the intricate coral design incorporated at the top making it more of a one-of-a-kind statement. Regardless of shape and size, a contemporary white table lamp or task lamp is always a fresh and functional focal point.

Like the white beauty! The thought of interior decoration by white color is very special and supportive. It gives the place extra beauty. Thanks for the idea.
