A Short Introduction to Designer Lamps
For centuries, light fixtures and different types of lamps have been an integral part of interior of every room. Throughout those years, lamps have diversified and are now available in many different models, shapes and designs, from pendants to lamps for the floor, wall and the table.
If you’re looking for stylish light fixtures that will bring unique charm and atmosphere to your home while also fulfilling their practical purpose, designer lamps are what you’re looking for! Some of the most popular models are designed by world-renowned Danish “light architects” like Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton or Poul Henningsen.
Pendant lamps are models that are designed so that they hang from the ceiling similar to chandeliers and unlike most ceiling lights which are attached to the ceiling.
Some of the most popular designer pendants are:
If you’re looking for beautiful and atmospheric lighting in the corner of your room or next to your lounge chair, there are many great designer lamps for sale to choose from. You might be interested, among others, in iconic Arne Jacobsen models which are a very popular choice for the floor. Made in several models, some of which include the table and outdoor versions, these classic designer lamps can be easily matched when you buy multiple products from the same series.
Poul Henningsen's Designer Lamps
The lighting architect, Poul Henningsen, known as PH, is known throughout the world for his designer lamps which include ceiling, floor and table. Some of his most successful lamps include PH 3/2 reading lamp designed around 1931, the Snowdrop, PH 2/2, also known as the Question Mark, and his world-famous Artichoke and Snowball.
PH’s lamps are very sought-after even today due to their timeless, yet undeniably modern look and practical and functional value. Therefore, the manufacturer Louis Poulsen still produces most of the lamps PH designed in the period between the 1920s and 1960s and this makes even the second-hand lamps rather costly, especially the older models which are popular among collectors. So, for the more economical solution, you might consider buying designer lamps replicas.

We all know that lighting can easily be too bright and uncomfortable, or maybe to dim and not really functional and with an uneven spread, it can easily create a wrong mood for the room.
If you buy some of the designer lamps from our offer, you won’t have to worry about these problems. For example, Poul Henningsen strove throughout his career to create a perfect glare-free lighting which is at the same time practical, atmospheric and aesthetically pleasing. This idea is at the core of all of his designs, including the most famous Artichoke and Snowball lamps where the unique construction of many small shades spreads the light evenly and prevents glare no matter which angle you’re viewing the lamp at.
