Lamps are one of the oldest styles of lighting but remain as popular today as they were hundreds of years ago, when light was provided by a candle and the lamps had little glass doors on the front. There is a little bit of romanticism associated with lamps, that feeling of cosying up in bed to read a book or working long into the night at your desk, with just a lamp lighting the way.
Lamps are hugely popular because of the range of uses they have and the ease with which they can be transported from room to room. No fittings are required, simply unpack from the box, plug in and go.
There are all sorts of lamps available today from floor lamps to table lamps to modern desk lamps and traditional bedside lamps. The options for colours, styles, designs and materials are wide and varied, so a suitable lamp is easy to find for any interior design, old or new.
