Table lamp trends can be as wide-ranging as fashion. What makes following this trend is that table lamps are much more practical than clothes and can be moved around the house and used in many applications.
One day an on-trend lamp can act as a chic bedside table lamp and the next it is modern desk lamp! Here are some of the most current trends in table lamps.
1. George Kovacs Square Shade Chrome Table Lamp
To me, geometric lamps are cerebral. Not only beautiful, they follow a more mathematical approach to enhancing a room. Strong geometry is important to any space and you may wish to introduce this form of lighting to rooms that lack architectural pizazz.
2. Feiss Urban Renewal Antique Forged Iron Desk Lamp (no longer available)
Industrial lamps are probably the hottest trend now. Part Steampunk, part Neo-Industrial Revolution, these lamps offer a specific look that works well in lofts, urban interiors as well as old-school country houses. It’s a nod to the past with modern aesthetic merit.
3. Arteriors Home Roma Emerald Cased Glass Table Lamp (currently unavailable)
Emerald is the darling hue du jour. Thus, incorporating this bold green in your home shows your understanding of current design trends. Adding an emerald table lamp is also an easy an inexpensive way to add a pop of color, especially if you tend to like neutrals and white.
4. Jamie Young Large Steampunk Table Lamp 5. Hammered Bronze Vase Table Lamp
Distressed lighting is also a popular table lamp trend. While it could be considered part industrial, these table lamps work better in a more polished space. While the forms are graceful, the patina is worn and warm.
