What types of table lamps are there?
Basically, table lamps can be divided into three categories: the classic table lamp, the clamp lamp and the desk lamp. The first are usually placed on chests of drawers or tables, for example on the bedside table. This type of table lamp is usually around 70 centimetres high, has a metal frame, a base and a shade. Clamping lights owe their name to the fact that they do not stand themselves, but are clamped on. On the one hand, this has the advantage that you get the light exactly where you need it. On the other hand, clamp luminaires save space in the absence of their own lamp base. Desk lamps are characterised primarily by the fact that they provide direct light at certain points. Usually equipped with an adjustable arm or head, these models offer maximum flexibility
Which lamps are suitable for table lamps?
In general, all light sources can be used in table lamps - halogen, energy-saving and LED lamps. - In individual cases, however, this depends on the version installed in the respective model. If you want to save energy and therefore costs, you should use an LED lamp. LED lamps also have a comparatively long service life of up to 50,000 operating hours.
Thanks to LED technology, it is now also possible to create new shapes for unusual table lamps that would not have been possible just a few years ago. Wafer-thin lamps or completely confused, intertwined table lamps for the sideboard are just as possible through the use of LED illuminants, as disc-shaped desk lamps, which you only notice when they are switched on that it is a designer lamp.
In which room can table lamps be used?
Table lamps are basically suitable for a wide range of applications, such as reading in the living room or bed, or as a light source for the desk.
There's no room on my desk. Can I still use a table lamp?
Clamp luminaires are the ideal solution when you are struggling with a lack of space at your desk. These models are not only easy to install and transport, but also require little space. Clamping lights can be mounted on almost any edge.
How do I find the right table lamp for my purposes?
In order to get to the bottom of this question, the intended use of the luminaire should be considered first. What do you want to use the lamp for? For reading light? As a desk lamp? Or should the luminaire primarily be used for decorative purposes? As soon as you are aware of this, you should think about possible additional functions: Should the luminaire be height-adjustable? Do you need an adjustable lamp head? Would you like to dim? If you have also found an answer to these questions, you should think about the design. After all, the new lamp should match the furniture in whose immediate surroundings it will be installed.
The most popular lamps in the table lamp category are the String or Luxy by Rotaliana, the popular Tolomeo lamps by Artemide or the stylish Taj desk lamps by the Italian designer lamp manufacturer Kartell. But also newcomers like the Danish design label Tom Rossau, which produces unusual table lamps, are becoming more and more popular.

What should I look out for when buying a table lamp?
To avoid unpleasant surprises when buying a table lamp, there are several things you should keep in mind. Should the lamp save electricity? Then make sure you choose a model that belongs to as high an energy efficiency class as possible. What kind of light should the lamp give? By looking at the wattage of the lamp, you can see very quickly what the light emitted by a lamp is like. A high number of watts usually means brighter light, which is particularly suitable for reading. A lower one, on the other hand, promises rather warm light. Sounds banal, but is important: Make sure that the cable of your lamp is long enough. And make sure you have enough space to set up the light.
