Table & Desk Lamps

Teen Lamps for Lighting Your Bedroom in Style

Desk and table lamps are an excellent way to bring more ambient or task lighting to your bedroom. Smaller and designed to be placed on a surface, they make a great addition to a bedside table. Simply reach over from the comfort of your bed to turn your lamp off before going to sleep and to turn it on when you wake up. Desk lamps can also provide extra lighting for activities during the day. At Pottery Barn Teen, you'll find an assortment of desk and table lamps for teens for any of your needs.

Most Popular Types of Teen Table Lamps

The most common type of table lamp is a shade lamp that has a round drum shade around the lightbulb, which is attached to the base. Shades come in many different colors, patterns and designs, making it easy to find the right look for any room. These lamps give off a soft, diffuse glow and direct light towards the ceiling, providing ambient light for the whole room. In place of a shade, some lamps have beads, crystals or other decorative elements around the lightbulb for a bit more visual interest. Another major type of desk lamp is a task lamp, which directs the light downwards. Some task lamps come with an additional swivel neck feature that allows even greater control over the direction of the light.

Teen lamps are available in a variety of unique novelty designs as well. Choose from among different lamp shapes and bases that reflect your personality and your unique interests. Pottery Barn Teen carries customizable lamps, lamps with bases in the design of different animals and even Harry Potter-inspired lamps made to look like objects from the wizarding world. It's always fun to add a bit of flair to your room.

Lighting for Schoolwork, Reading, Journaling and More

While a good ceiling light or floor lamp can provide a bedroom with plenty of ambient light, there are a number of tasks and activities that require a smaller desk lamp for proper lighting. When you do schoolwork at your desk, for example, it will go much quicker if you can see your work clearly. Or perhaps you have a hobby such as journaling or drawing that a good desk lamp can really help you sit down and enjoy. Avid readers will likewise appreciate being able to curl up in bed with their favorite book and a cozy table lamp to light their way as they delve into the pages.

Teen Desk Lamps to Liven Up Your Decor

Desk and table lamps come in a variety of styles and designs, giving you the freedom to really express yourself. Choose a lamp with a bright and bold shade to add a pop of color and texture to your room. Alternatively, if you're looking for something that can easily be incorporated into your existing color and design scheme, go with a simpler lamp featuring just one or two colors. You have ample choice when it comes to lamp base materials as well, from a sleek and modern glass base to glitzy and glamorous iron base shaped into an intricate design.

The perfect teen lamps from Pottery Barn Teen can really help tie a room together, both in terms of style and function. You can use your new lamp as an accent or a complement to your unique bedroom design and as an extra source of light wherever it is needed. Enjoy a brighter and more comfortable bedroom by choosing the right desk and table lamps for your needs.
