Direct light with ideal visibility for reading should not be create a glare. Most classical reading lamps achieve this with a lampshade whose diameter is larger at the bottom than at the top. Halogen lights and LEDs have also made completely new designs possible. Whether as a table or floor lamp, with our carefully selected lights from leading manufacturers, reading will be a leisurely pleasure that reduces eye strain as much as possible.
The last decades have produced a surprisingly high diversity of different types of reading lights for creating the most enjoyable reading experience, and customers should spend time to find a good reading lamp for their own health purposes. It depends mostly on the characteristics of the reading space: If you want to read in the chair on the couch, floor lamps that can be positioned in that area are valuable with light coming from the side and above. A modern classic is the uplighter style reading lamp, where an additional reading lamp is fixed to the main body of the light.
Since the demise of the incandescent light bulb, the light output is now specified in lumens as the optimal way to provide any information with respect to the actual brightness of the room. But not it's only the combinations of uplighters and reading lamps that have proven their worth, but also dimmable lights. Dimmable lights offer the decisive advantage because their brightness can be adjusted exactly to the current needs, so you can always have cosy reading light.
On the other hand, if you want to write or read at a table or desk, small desk lamps with a firm base are the preferred choice. Also by the bedside table they create a cosy reading light which is bright enough not to strain the eyes too much. Another practical method is a clamp-on light that can be fastened to the table top. Clamp-on lights with a dual articulating arm, modelled on the bone structure of the human arm, have been world famous for decades. They can be rotated in all directions; even the lamp head is adjustable.
Alongside work and architecture lights, there are also many reading lamps available with compact lampshades with a healthy, functional light. If you want to set up a very natural style suitable for this purpose, wooden table lamps, even with exotic woods like bamboo, are popular. However, the good, old, country house style and related Art Nouveau Tiffany glass designs are also still popular. Height-adjustable pendant lamps are also often used as reading lamps at the dining table.
There are practically no limits to the creative expression of reading lamp designs; however, since small halogen lamps and tiny LEDs allow for virtually any physical shape. There are a multitude of LED table lights with a full form and purist design. We also offer a rich diversity and expansive variations that will catch the eye without even being turned on.
