Help! The clock has gone back one hour and the dark days are upon us. Time to cocoon and start the wintering. But that is certainly not necessary in the dark. With good lighting at home you defeat the dark winter blues.

You may not be waiting for a whole light plan. Fortunately, you don't need that to keep your house warm and light until spring returns. We have the ideal solution for you: vintage table lamps.

Table lamps are ideal. Easy to move and come in all shapes and sizes. You can easily illuminate that one corner. With a beautiful vintage lamp you can do that sustainably and stylishly. We give you a few tips and we list the most beautiful vintage lamps for you.

Turn on the lights

  1. Table lamps come in all shapes and sizes and are easily movable within your home. For example, place a small and large table lamp next to each other for even more light and a playful effect.
  2. Make sure you replace low-wattage lamps in the winter with clear and energy-efficient lamps. Dimmers are great for making the light a little cosier in the evenings.
  3. Hang a mirror opposite a window and place a table lamp in front of it. This way you multiply the light during the day and in the evening.
