Danish Retro Table Lamps

Danish design furniture emphasizes the contemporary classic furniture from Scandinavia. It applies to industrial design in furniture and table lamps that follow the Danish style are undoubtedly some of the most impressive examples of retro table lamps you will see.

Conditions in Denmark in the late 1940s were suited to successful innovation in design with an unprecedented support for freedom of individual expression.

Danish style table lamps can often be distinguished by the wood craftsmanship that is used. The Danish style conforms a practical style and the principle that the design should conform to the comfort of the user. The design is predominantly smooth and unadorned.

The best known Danish lamp designer in the retro era, Poul Henningsen emphasized the need for lighting to be soft and the shade to cast a pleasant shadow and for the bulb to be blocked from direct view.
