Why We Love Wrought Iron Table Lamps
Simple and unadorned or ornate and vintage, wrought iron lamps captivate with an age-old elegance. From timeless scroll bases to sleek modern adaptations, these bold fixtures will brighten your space with their warm shine. You can use them to create a coordinated lighting scheme throughout your home by pairing them with wrought iron floor lamps and wrought iron chandeliers. Or, you can use them as solitary as statement pieces. They’re ideal for homes with industrial, traditional, and rustic decor styles, but even modern homes can find a piece in this collection that will complement existing decor.
Where Iron Table Lamps Work Best
Thanks to their wide range of styles and the unique combination of an antique material with contemporary styles and silhouettes, wrought iron table lamps will work almost anywhere. Place them in pairs around an ornamental centerpiece on a stylish console table, or use iron table lamps as functional and elegant bedside lighting. However, they don’t always need a partner. Place one alone on an accent table where it can be the center of attention and act as a viable light source. In gathering places like living rooms and basements these elegant fixtures can provide both ambient and task lighting in a package small enough not to dominate the space.
Favorite Wrought Iron Table Lamp Shapes & Styles
There are a lot of different shapes and styles available, which can sometimes be overwhelming. So we’ll point out some of our personal favorites for you to take a look at. Pay special attention to the rustic wrought iron table lamps with unique branch-like bases that add an organic element to these refined fixtures. Contrarily, black wrought iron adds a more polished effect to this vintage metal, that’s perfect for homes with industrial or farmhouse decor. Forged iron table lamps tend to lean towards traditional values, but you’ll find plenty of fresh and modern pieces in this unique collection.
How to Choose the Perfect Wrought Iron Lamp
With so many choices, make sure that the desk lamp you choose brings the functionality you need with the style you want. The most important thing to keep in mind is the size of the surface where you’ll be placing your lamp. Though it may not seem necessary, table lamps are not one size fits all. If you’re interested in exclusively directional lighting, look for a lamp with an adjustable arm so you can control where the light goes. However, if you’re interested in a softer, ambient light, look to wrought iron lamps with a linen shade or glass to diffuse the beams. Put your practical needs first, and then find a design that suits you.
For other lighting options that employ vintage aspects and pair them with modern styles, pull chain table lamps and industrial table lamps are perfect options. Pull chain table lamps are available in several different styles while industrial styles flawlessly walk the fine line between polished and practical. And, there’s no reason to confine your lighting to your indoor spaces. Take a look at our outdoor table lamps to provide an attractive ambient shine on your porches and decks.
