16 stylish table lamps to brighten up any corner in your home

Lamps are important for adding low-level light to a space, but they’re also a great way to add a touch of colour, pattern, or texture too.

They might not often be the focal point, but a good table lamp can be a quietly hardworking aspect of almost any room, from a living space to hallway, to a bedroom. 

As well as providing soft, low-level light in the evening, gently illuminating corners, their endless combinations of bases and shades can also add a pop of colour, a subtle texture, or a sculptural shape. 

Whatever you’re looking for from your table lamp, we’ve found options to suit your space.

Pattern

Prints and patterns can make for a lamp that catches your eye. If you can’t find a combination you like, try buying the base and shade separately.

Sculptural

Lamps don’t have to be a standard shape, and plenty of designs add interest with a sculptural base. This is a great option to add something a bit different if you prefer to stick to neutral colours.

Texture

Varied textures add depth and help a space feel layered, and a lamp can provide texture through either its shade or its base.

Colourful

A lamp is an easy way to inject colour into a space. You can simply change the shade on a lamp you already own for a quick update, or go all-in with a design with a colourful base.
