Renovating your space can be expensive, time consuming and messy – especially because any lighting that’s installed into the mains normally requires an electrician. Yet lighting is still the simplest way to set the tone for you space…. Say hello to the humble table lamp. No complicated wiring, no electrician. Just un-pack, plug-in and you’re good to go.
If you love the idea of modern, designer light bulbs but can’t bear the idea of a full renovation (or you can’t sacrifice your existing task lighting) a table lamp is the perfect way to produce the atmosphere and personality you’re after.
Feature table lamps
Choosing a table lamp is no longer all-about-the-lamp with the bulb as an afterthought. Even if its hidden by a shade, the bulb is an integral part of the overall atmosphere you’re aiming to create.
Paired with our innovative and exciting bulb designs, even plain and neutral lamps can be transformed into pieces of art. Every Plumen bulb has its own personality – from ambient bulbs that create a cosy mood, to brighter bulbs for task lighting. And, as the bulbs’ silhouettes change, so too do their relationship with the lamp base, which serves to accentuate the beauty of the bulb.
