Funky Unique Modern Table Lamps in 2021

With it comes to home accessories, table lamps top the list since most of us opt for any generic model and seldom focus on its aesthetic value.

However, your selection of interior lighting does not need to be just practical and should extend your personality or your home decor. In fact, if you like me are bored with the usual run-of-the-mill lighting fixtures you will like the creative approach these rather cool designs offer.

There is something here for the tech lover and the practical joker. So if you are looking for the perfect lighting fixture then keep reading on as we are about to list some of the funkiest table lamps in the design world.

My favorite is the “One Man Shy”, I think it is so simple yet it says so much, especially when you remove the shade. If you are looking for a more clean looking style, see our post on 12 Contemporary Ideas and Designs.

Lighting is very important in making your house look beautiful. Lights and lamps also serve a functional purpose. There is more to buying a modern or unique table lamp than grabbing the first one you think looks pretty.

You also need to think about your needs. You should consider size, color, scale, function and wattage. Even your own height is important! Your choice of modern table lamp depends on what you want the lamp for. Is it for dining and entertaining? Is it for reading or working? Or just for some extra lighting?

Color and Style of Your Unique Table Lamps

You can buy lamps in just about any color or style these days. Matching your table lamp to your décor is a good idea. If you have, for example, a peach colored room, a peach tone of table lamp can introduce a beautiful accent and blend into the décor.

If you favor the antique look, a Tiffany style lamp can look attractive. Tiffany lamps were popular in the 1970s and are making a big comeback now, thanks to their timeless style. They are now more refined in terms of color and design and more affordable in today’s economy.

You can choose from fringed lampshades, plain fabric lampshades, glass fibers and many more designs. It is worth taking as much time as you need to select the perfect one.

For something a little more modern, how about a traditional desk lamp or something quirky, like a lamp with the sun, moon and stars on? You can get copper-based lamps, gold effect lamps, silver lamps and many more types. Your table lamps should match both your personality and requirements.

A table lamp with a gallows-like metal base. Two common elements, a cable and a light bulb, are associated to create a bold character in a transgressive attitude that challenges us to change the way we look at life.

Got to say this one is my favorite. I do not know why, but something catches the eye. The light bulb makes it even more impressive. I still wish you could buy them as they would make a great joke present.
