One of the quickest ways for a home space to look more elevated is to organise and hide any electric cords. A mess of wires can make a place look cluttered, drawing the eye away from sleek and beautiful objects you might have around your home and instead to the cords that power them.
Enter the cordless lamp. They’re lamps that don’t require a constantly-running power source, and work instead either with single-use or rechargeable batteries. And because they don’t require you to plug them into an outlet, they’re portable, so you can easily move them from room to room, depending on where you need light.
These days, cordless lamps come in all shapes and sizes, from small brass lights that add a touch of elegance to any room, and colourful mushroom lamps you can use to bring some playfulness into your living room.
