2)PRACTICAL

Portable lamps give the option to add a layer of light to a room without having to rewire which can be costly and unconventional for some homeowners. This is especially the case for older homes that bring up hidden costs of installing a new fixture which may require more work. In addition, portable lamps are also useful for providing task lighting for sewing, reading, or writing. The Valeo Floor Lamp from Cerno can offer ambient lighting to a space as an alternative for a fixture. The floor lamp is almost 8 feet tall and has an adjustable shade that can be lowered.

3) PORTABLE

Portable lamps are made of durable material but are not fixated to a single spot. Portable lamps can be moved to different areas or rooms that require an additional layer of light or a decorative element. This 2-Light Floor lamp from Dainolite has adjustable arms for versatile use, and has a mid-century modern aesthetic.

4)DECORATIVE

Portable lamps are also a great way to experiment with different styles to create a statement. Some lamps have replaceable shades which can enhance its visual appeal or match current decor. Portable lamps can also be a statement in and of itself, such as oversized floor lamps that can serve as general lighting for a room due to its scale or ornate lamps such as the Lynch Tiffany Table Lamp from Quoizel that has an intricate detailed glass shade.

5) SPACE

Table and Desk Lamps take minimal space, and also creates the illusion of a larger space when they are positioned in certain areas. For instance, when lamps are next to a wall such as when they are on top of a buffet or side table, they create a surface of light that makes the space appear larger. This is ideal in living rooms, dining rooms, and foyers where buffet and side tables are commonly used. The Saga Table Lamp from Dimond Lighting has a chocolate faux silk shade and a complimentary chocolate smoke glass base that provides the added illusion of a larger space.
