Lamps are an easy way to bring that little extra something to your interiors. They don’t need a lot of space, yet they can still be big on impact. At Zanui, we have a vast selection of lamps for you to choose from. To make your choice a little easier, we’ve broken them down into categories.
The right table lamp will enhance your interior décor, whether it’s switched on or not. Table lamps are incredibly versatile and can work in almost any part of the house, from the living room to the study. The options are endless in terms of style – from modern designer table lamps with wide drum shades and glass bodies, to pillar-shaped table lamps with aged brass or silver finishes on the base and pleated shades. Table lamps are great for bringing ambient lighting to your space at times when overhead lighting might feel too harsh.
Style tip: Create symmetry by placing two table lamps at either end of a console table or entertainment unit in the foyer or living room. Not only will this look fantastic, it will also create a cosier atmosphere when the lamps are illuminated – great for helping guests feel welcome, and for bringing an air of intimacy to your soiree that simply can’t be replicated with bright ceiling lights.
Desk lamps improve visibility while you work to help you accomplish your tasks, from paperwork to sewing. Most desk lamps have goosenecks, lamp heads, or bodies that can be adjusted. These features allow you to direct the flow of light where you need it most, to reduce eye strain and help you work more comfortably.
Style tip: Desk lamps are not just restricted to use at desks! They’re typically lightweight and portable, meaning you can use them anywhere from the desk in your study, to your dining table, to your work bench in your garage!
A bedside lamp is a must-have for any modern bedroom. They can be used for style, but might also be used for task lighting. A lamp with an adjustable head akin to a desk lamp will work best for reading in bed. But if you’re just going to be switching the lamp on before you go to sleep, any fixed-bodied table lamp will do.
Style tip: Touch lamps are ideal for use in the bedroom. You simply reach out and tap the base to switch them on, which means no more fumbling around in the dark trying to find the light switch!
Floor lamps come in a range of different styles. From modern and contemporary kinds with sleek metal bodies or side tables built into them (yes, these are real!), to traditional uplighters or those that resemble spotlights. Some floor lamps have adjustable heads that allow you to focus the illumination – great for reading or doing a crossword. Others are better used for mood lighting
Style tip: To best create cosiness, opt for a white cotton lamp shade. These diffuse light with a softer glow – perfect for creating warm ambience in your space.
Kids’ lamps perform all the same tasks as regular lamps, but with an added layer of durability and safety that kids need. They come in many fun shapes, colours, and styles to ensure your little one will actually like how their lamp looks. Whether you’re after a night light to keep fear of the dark at bay, a bedside lamp for reading before bed with mum or dad, or a study lamp for doing homework, you’ll want a kids’ lamp that combines both practicality and personality.
Style tip: Opt for a dimmable lamp for your little one’s nursery. A dimmable lamp on the lowest setting will provide plenty of light for those late-night feeds or cuddle sessions, when too bright a light might make it hard for you and bub to get back to sleep.
