If you’ve got the task, we have the vintage industrial table lamp.
Task lighting illuminates a space to better accomplish a specific work activity. But the amount of light is not the only factor that contributes to good lighting. Contrast is equally as important. A poorly positioned table lamp can reduce contrast and lower overall visibility. So the most important aspect of task lighting is not to increase the amount of light but to improve contrast through positioning of the lamp. Task lighting focuses the light where it is most needed and general lighting in the space can then be reduced. After all, it’s about getting the job done and not how much light is in the room.
Vintage Task lamps gained popularity out of necessity during the Industrial Revolution. Manufacturing was not automated as it is today with machines and computers so everyone had a manual job to do. Many industrial jobs were intricate and time consuming that required good lighting to get the job done right. Task lighting spread from the factory to the doctor’s office with examination lights, surgical lights and the ever popular dentist’s light. Let’s move on. Eventually, task lamps became a staple in the home for reading, sewing, writing and even small repairs.
Today, task lighting has become more sleek and modern. Table lamps are smaller and even the light bulbs can hardly be noticed. But say no more because these vintage industrial table lamps are ready for a comeback. Made from high grade industrial steel with a polished nickel finish, these lamps look like they came straight from the manufacturing plant. They are industrial strong, heavy and ready to take on the world. Or at least whatever task you have at home they can lend a hand. Take one look at these lamps and you’ll see that they bend, twist and adjust to almost any position you need them. And more important, they look cool doing it. Use these table lamps where you need them the most, by a reading chair, night table or even the computer. Any way you decide to use these lamps they will add plenty of light and vintage industrial style to your space.
Now stay focused and let’s get to the task at hand.
