Why We Love Brass Table Lamps
Modern with a touch of vintage or vintage with a touch of modern, brass table lamps are a stylish way to give a nod to antique influences without straying too far into the past. These stunning light fixtures are perfect for task or ambient lighting, depending on what style you choose, and they act as a beautiful personal touch that brings your home decor together. Appealing and attractive in both modern and traditional homes alike, a brass table lamp could be just the thing you need to complete the look of your room.
Where Brass Table Lamps Work Best
Thanks to their wide range of styles and the combination of a vintage material with updated shapes and silhouettes, brass tables can work almost anywhere. Use them symmetrically in pairs to surround an ornamental centerpiece on a stylish console table or as a functional and elegant bedside reading lights. Let a modern brass table lamp stand by itself and shine by placing it alone on an accent table where it is the center of attention. In gathering places like living rooms and basements, brass table lamps can provide both ambient and task lighting in a fixture small enough not to dominate the space. Pair them with bright, brass ceiling lights or stagger them around a room to create a layered light look. Brass lamps work in any space.
Favorite Types of Modern Brass Table Lamps
There’s no singular style that modern brass table lamps adhere to. Each and every designer took this classic finish and manipulated it in new and fresh ways, resulting in a wide range of different styles. From solid brass bases with bold lines to delicate yet daring bubble lighting, there’s no shortage of options to choose from. We love the look of the vintage look of brushed brass, and the fixtures that combine this finish with rustic exposed bulbs and natural finishes are a dream come true to any industrial decor lover. And, for all of those who can relate, consider browsing our entire selection of exposed bulb table lamps. If you didn’t find something you loved in this collection, you definitely will there.

How to Choose the Perfect Brass Table Light
The most important thing to keep in mind when purchasing a brass table lamp is their height and width. Because table lamps are so practical and portable, they can fit essentially anywhere in any home. This can lead to purchasing a lamp that’s too tall to look good in your space or too small to be noticed. If you’ll be placing your lamp on a side table as an ornamental piece, a small but sturdy piece will provide enough light to be seen without taking over the entire table. However, in a large space or room, a small lamp could easily get lost amongst the other fixtures. For this reason, we suggest opting for a fixture that’s either wide and dominant or tall and imposing with a standout design.
Brass table lamps aren’t the only option you have to choose from. Gold table lamps have the same warm, yet contemporary feel to them with an equally vast selection of designs to choose from. And, for a table lamp that changes as your needs change, adjustable table lamps are the just the thing. With table lamps, always put function over decoration because, with our carefully curated selection of beautiful fixtures, there’s plenty of different styles available.
