Table lamps cast omnidirectional light and often feature beautiful forms that work well for accent lighting. Since these lamps are smaller and are often used as secondary sources of light, we recommend fitting them with an 8 watt LED bulb (40-watt incandescent equivalent) or a 12.5 watt LED bulb (60-watt incandescent equivalent).

You can purchase this lamp as a DIY kit and customize it yourself with a 12.5 watt Philips A19 LED bulb and a colorful cord of your choice.

The lamp’s delicate yet durable honeycomb construction diffuses light, and it is available in both red and white. We recommend using this lamp with a 12.5 watt LED bulb, which will provide just the right amount of reading light.
