Our wide range of vintage table lights and desk lamps are designed to elegantly brighten any room and fit seamlessly into a multitude of design trends. At The Farthing, we pride ourselves on not only creating high quality hard wearing goods but also helping turn houses into a home. The charm of industrial and rustic table lamps is unmatched, designed with classic elegance in mind and neutral tones to suit industrial materials such as metal, wood and concrete that are used in the build of the lamps. They offer a warm light and create a sense of cosiness that cannot be easily replicated.
No matter how cold and minimalistic the design of the room was before, simply displaying a couple of well-chosen table lights and desk lamps can dramatically change it for the better. Choose one or even two that match your tastes and see just how quickly the place becomes more comfy and refined at the same time.
The best thing about rustic table lights and vintage desk lamps is precisely their adaptability. As much as this transformative power of making almost any place be elevated to a classier and cosier vibe is universal to pretty much all of them, they can also be quite different. By choosing a particular model and style for your table lamp, you can completely change the style direction in which the room is heading. Whether you opt for a modern and sleek design, or a copper-toned steampunk vibe or even the classic retro flowery touch, you will surely put an unmistakable touch of class and style to the room. Choose your favourite or favourites and witness just how much of an impact something so small can make!

It is important you consider the purpose of the light, for instance is it used for decorative purposes, for reading, or mood lighting. Then consider which style would suit your home whether it be modern and contemporary or vintage and industrial. Once you have established these primary points, consider the size, colour, and shade of the table light or desk lamp you are after.
Position your lamp so it does not reflect off a TV or computer screen. The lamp should be placed so that shadows do not streak across the screen. If you’re right-handed this means placing the light source on the left-hand side of the desk.
If you are worried about certain lighting causing damage to your eyes, especially if you are sitting at a desk all day with your desk lamp switched on, then an LED desk lamp or an LED bulb is a smarter choice than alternatives. LED bulbs do not give off as much heat as other bulbs minimising eye strain.
