A couple of months ago we kicked off a roundup series focusing on awesome locally available accent lighting.
In our very first list, “10 Amazingly Cool Standing Lamps” we sourced and selected ten stunning floor lamps for your home – from quirky and playful, to chic and trendy. Our second instalment, “8 Strikingly Trendy Hanging Lamps“, focused on pendant lights, while our third post, “7 Contemporary & Chic Wall Lights“, featured lovely wall-fixed lighting.
Today we will conclude this lighting series with a final search to find what awesome light fittings the South African shelves have to offer.
We did a little online search to see how many trendy, attention-grabbing local table and desk lamps we could drum up. While finding desk lamps proved to be a breeze, the more traditional table lamps were a slightly harder find.
So, without further ado, here is our roundup of ten delightfully divine table and desk lamps for your home…
10 Divine Table & Desk Lamps:
Wire & Cement Lamp
Combining two current decor trends, this table lamp with its copper wire frame and grey concrete base will add an edgy yet chic Industrial element to your space. Available from Mr Price Home
Gräshoppa Table Lamp
Designed by renowned designer and architect Greta Grossman in 1947, the iconic Gräshoppa Table Lamp is an excellent example of quintessential Mid-Century Modern design. The arm and base is made from solid bass while the conical shade is powder-coated in trendy coral-like colour described as “vintage red”. Available from Crema
Weathered Concrete Belly Lamp
If you want a slightly more traditional table lamp the Weathered Concrete Belly lamp and shade will be a superb choice. While stylish and elegant, the concrete-look base will add an interesting texture and a contemporary flair to your home. Available from @Home
Want to incorporate a bit of minimalist Scandi design into your space? This tall copper lamp with its grey stone base will ensure your interiors remain on-trend. Oh, and don’t forget the naked bulb! Available from Woolworths
Oh, Hoi P’loy how do I love thee… let me count the ways. This gorgeous walnut and brass Bureau Lamp, inspired by some of Thomas Edison’s early designs, has got me smitten. The lamp features a traditional turnkey switch (cool!) which slots through the tubular glass shade. Available from Hoi P’loy
Fixed Table Lamp
With its clean lines and matte black and brass finish, the Fixed Table Lamp is sleek, contemporary and tangibly masculine. Available from Weylandts
Blue Jeans Table Lamp
Functional yet stylish, this desk lamp will be a lovely addition to any workspace. Pairing trendy Scandi design with practical utility, the blue colourway of the lamp shade and base compliments and contrasts the wood detail perfectly. Available online through Superbalist
Urban Copper Desk Lamp
With its wooden adjustable arm the Urban Desk Lamp makes for a brilliant functional, yet aesthetically pleasing, lighting option. The contemporary design, trendy copper shade and exposed threaded cord adds an industrial edge. Available from Illumina
Max Desk Lamp
Another funky desk light. I love how the seafoam coloured shade pairs with the adjustable wooden frame and chrome base. Available online through Superbalist

Add a bit of glamour and elegance to your home with this stylish table lamp. The clear glass lamp base features a “dipped-effect” gold foil detail which will make for an eye-catching accent piece. Available from @Home
