Best Bets: Dual-Duty Portable Lamps
Floor and table lamps are portable by nature because you can place them anywhere you want. But what if they did more? Our dual-duty portables have the coolest features you need right now.
Retro styling with today's technology. AdessoCharge lamps like the Maxine feature induction-charging bases for your smart devices, and an extra USB port in the base for another device or one without wireless charging capability.
Inspired by a streetlight, this is practical German design at its best. The head comes off for use as a table lamp or hang as a pendant with the included rope. Plus, the charge lasts up to 24 hours depending on the brightness level you choose.
Light and music for yourself…or 23 friends. Uma's Bluetooth speaker and light can connect up to 24 units for an unforgettable hi-fi outdoor affair. This lightweight lamp is a must-have for summertime soirees or chilling solo in the backyard.
Cheerful colors and a clever design that mimics a utility light, with a modern upgrade. Chispa means spark, and this was designed to spark outdoor get-togethers with its versatile performance. Includes a hanging accessory for use with its built-in hook.
Part lamp, part artwork, all round. We love this charming accent design from Estiluz, with a rounded dome shade and ring that add a modern touch to indoor and outdoor areas alike. We'd suggest one of each size for a charming illuminated centerpiece.
Pop the top off this lamp the next time you pop a cork. The Float's detachable light head has a mount underneath that just happens to perfectly fit a wine bottle for those nights when you don't want to be the only one wearing a lampshade.
Koncept's award-winning table lamp can do more than just sit on a table. Charge up your electronics with a USB port or hang this little light wherever you like with the included faux-leather strap. It's dimmable, colorful and can fully charge a phone twice before needing to be charged up itself.
Landscape lighting usually stays where it's been installed, until now. Bring the rechargeable Poldina wherever you want your path lighting to go, and simply stake it into the ground when you get there. It's also touch dimmable for setting the mood.
Don't choose between lighting and décor anymore; LODES has both covered in the Easy Peasy. The form of a charming doll figurine with the function of a go-anywhere rechargeable lamp, all made from colorful glass and methacrylate. No wonder it's the 2020 Interior Design Magazine Best of Year.
Modeled like a camping lantern, but so much more. With no visible filament, light is diffused through the bottom diffuser to glow without glare. A speaker on top offers totable tunes and connects via Bluetooth. And it's wet listed for safe outdoor use, too.
Is it a light, a sculpture or a light show? You don't have to choose with Droppia. This color-changing light also has fade and candle effects and is compatible with a separate remote control. Plus, it's waterproof and shockproof, so it'll be around a long time.
A tote-able light you can use poolside? Yes please! Smart & Green already offers a plethora of waterproof designs, but the Vessel 2's smart-looking handle lands this lamp firmly among our favorite portables. Coordinate a color-changing scheme with other Smart & Green lights via their app.
