I’ve always liked the simplicity as well as sculptural high quality of task lamps. They’re the perfect modern, industrial hit for almost any type of space. From a bedside table to a desk, a reading lamp in the living space or a punchy hit of colour in a hallway, the task lamp reigns ultimate in my books!
Now I understand there are a number of different types, however the one I covet most is by Jieldé (above), a French business that has been making gorgeous illumination since 1950.
Stacey Smithers as well as I utilized a excellent bronze floor lamp by Jieldé (available with Hollace Cluny) in the September 2010 problem of H&H. I like exactly how the lamp looks next to the vintage desk — simple as well as understated. as well as who states you have to utilize a table lamp at desk? try pulling up a floor lamp for a more contemporary look.
There are a number of choices offered if you’re in the market for a task lamp. I suggest something with the exact same traditional lines as the Jieldé. The Pharmacy Antiqued Bronze desk Lamp (above) by Crate & Barrel is a great option. I like the used bronze finish.
If you’re looking for something a bit more contemporary, try the Crane Grellow desk Lamp by CB2. now offered in Canada!
The industrial task Table Lamp from West Elm is one more gorgeous as well as affordable choice — only $59! I like the polished nickel accents with the glossy black finish. I’m really believing of these for bedside tables in my own place!
Here’s a floor version from Ikea. It doesn’t have the exact same jointed arm, however will still provide the exact same general look. I like the white — as well as the price, $40!
