Contemporary table lamps 


Put a contemporary table lamp on a Directoire chest of drawers. A couple of books, some fresh flowers. Magic. Put a pair of contemporary table lamp on a lucite console table in your hallway. A vide-poche (may we recommend Hermès, the small round one, in felt—a must-have, really). And again, magic. Contemporary may be a label that can mean all kinds of styles, but to us ‘contemporary’ means ‘at ease, anywhere, anyplace’. At Empel Collections, we not only design contemporary table lamps, but also floor lamps, wall lights, and ceiling lamps that do not look dated the moment you buy a new ottoman. In our not so humble opinion, that kind of design is not contemporary but trendy. And, at Empel Collections, we have decided that trendy is out of fashion. It is all about ‘timeless’ for us.

Our contemporary table lamps: modern meets old skool


Let’s just say it: our lamps are not cheap. First of all, we use the best materials we can find. And our design process is different from most. As almost all of our table lamps are made to measure, incorporating a client’s individual specifications, we literally start from scratch most of a time, bouncing ideas back and forth. And our manufacturing process is not really a process at all. We do everything by hand. We don’t have a conveyor belt production line, manned by robots, churning out contemporary table lamps 24/7. Believe you us when we say that gold-leafing a pair of table lamps and then adding patina and detailing takes hours and hours of painstaking work. Our approach may be modern, our methods are old skool. And we would not have it any other way.
 

The icing on the cake 


A well designed, well executed, contemporary table lamp is the icing on your interior design cake. Although generally speaking icing is toothachingly sweet, and basically inedible, and serves to keep your Christmas cake ‘fresh’ until well into Spring, which is really quite unnecessary. Obviously, what we mean to say is that a well-placed contemporary table lamp—or better yet, a well-placed pair of contemporary table lamps—is not only utterly functional but can be as beautiful and striking as a piece of art.
