It would be quite a simple matter to define a contemporary table lamp as any lamp that was made in the last few years but that wouldn’t properly explain it fully. Designers can choose to either follow the latest fashion trend, replicate an older style or set a new trend and that means that not all the lamps produced today necessarily follow a contemporary style.
A contemporary table lamp is any lamp that complements the furnishings in a contemporary room. The lines are sleek and the finish is modern making use of elements of the latest technologies.

You would be expecting to see the lamp base made from a brushed metal finish or a matte ceramic. The lines are simple and clean and it's rare that you will find too many adornments or embellishments on the lamp. A contemporary table lamp is going to add to the modern flair of the room while also supplying much needed illumination without becoming an overbearing feature of the room.
The great thing about contemporary lamps is that they can come from past eras and look as though they belong in the room. Many of the lamps from the retro era were designed and made using brushed metals and the space age designs that are starting to dominate again today.
Stainless steel table lamps and brushed nickel are popular contemporary materials and the modern looking glass lamp shades are some of the lamps that you should be looking for.
It doesn't matter whether you're after directional lighting or a more demure ambient light source, the contemporary lamps that are available today will suit most rooms.
