Here’s what to look for in a table lamp to get that Urban Chic vibe.


For the urban part:

  • Edison bulbs – to refer to the Urban Style’s relation to Industrial Styles. This bulb is one of the symbols of the Industrial Revolution.
  • Metal and glass as materials – the same materials used to build urban buildings and skyscrapers.
  • Bulbs in metal cages – to refer to outdoor lamps used in industrial zones. They come with cage-like shades to protect them from the elements.
  • Machine aesthetic – an overall polished, engineered look that’s characteristic of the Industrial Era.  

For the chic / elegant part:

  • Shiny, metallic finishes – preferably gold, but silver, chrome, or nickel finishes work too.
  • Use of luxurious materials like marble or granite.
  • Cage-like shades with patterns that are more sophisticated than the usual industrial caged lamps.
And that’s it for this really short post on Urban Chic Style table lamps.
