Wall lamps or wall chandeliers are a key part of the atmosphere as they can illuminate a painting or accentuate a hidden corner. They can also be used as a reading lamp or as highlights beside a flight of stairs. Another possibility is to place them next to or above a mirror.
Every house needs lamps to brighten up its walls. When building a house, direct power points are usually planned so wall-mounted lamps can be installed directly. This way, there are no visible cords. A lamp with a cord, plug or switch can be used when a lamp has to be connected to a socket. Sometimes there is also the option to fit an on/off button on a model. Feel free to ask about the possibilities!
Wall lamps can be extremely functional. Think, for example, of an extendible lamp with a swing arm. It is really easy to work and read near one of these models. La Lampe Gras' models are famous. The industrial wall lamps have a swing arm which enables you to set the lamp to the perfect height. The light source can also be tilted and aimed at the desired direction. It can be used to highlight paintings and sculptures as well.
Picture lights, uplighters and downlighters are excellent for illuminating works of art and beautiful ornaments. A respectable collection has been put together in the section picture lamps.
Tiffany wall lamps also have their own section; just have a look at Tiffany lamps.
