When choosing a light fixture for your modern home, consider packing some punch with a bold, red lamp. Explore some of our favorite table lamps, wall sconces, pendant lights, and floor lamps in the boldest color on the spectrum.

Red floor lamp with spring technology

The Type 75 Mini Floor Lamp is a sophisticated floor light that is designed with small spaces in mind. The lamp is defined by its classic Anglepoise looks—it features clean lines and a simple shade—and a thin profile. Shown here in bright red, the lamp is also available in other colors including black, white, grey, and light blue.

Iconic wall light with up and down movement

The Funiculí Wall Lamp is an update of a lamp designed in 1979 by Spanish designer Lluís Porqueras, who is renowned for the absolute simplicity of his designs. The name Funiculí comes from the concept of funicular action—moving up and down. Shown in red, the lamp is also available in neutral colors. It is also available as a floor lamp and table lamp.

Iconic spring technological desk lamp

Anglepoise’s Original 1227 was launched in 1934, and is considered the archetypal lamp from the British company. The lamp took off where other contemporary task lamps left off, using a newly developed constant spring technology to create a lamp that was extremely flexible and adjustable, while also maintaining a consistent balance and stability.

Streamlined wall lamp in red

Designed by Arne Jacobsen, the aptly named AJ lamps were designed in 1960 for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark. Each lamp in the AJ series is elegant and eye-catching, while maintaining a refined simplicity in its silhouette. The AJ Wall Lamp features a sleek shade that emits directed light. The lamp is also available in a floor lamp and table lamp.

Floor lamp inspired by solar system

The Radius LED Floor Lamp was inspired by the early Danish torchier lamps and includes a radial shade and conical top. This allows light to radiate both upward and downward, creating a consistent light source that can be used in a variety of interiors, from living rooms and offices to bedrooms and grand entryways.

Sleek minimalist task lamp

Sleek and streamlined, THIN by designer Peter Bristol for Juniper is an innovative task light that generates the maximum amount of light while using minimal materials. The result is a powerful lamp that can produce over 500 lumens of warm white light while remaining modest in size. The ultra-thin body can be extended to three feet, allowing it to stretch over most work surfaces.

Iconic floor lamp in poised grasshopper shape

Designed by Greta Grossman, the iconic Gräshoppa series was first produced in 1947. Influenced by European Modernism, the lamp balances minimalism, high function, and distinctive personality. The Gräshoppa Floor Lamp is characterized by its angled stand and tripod legs, which appear almost like a grasshopper poised on its legs, ready to jump.

Colorful table lamp inspired by saucer

Tokyo-born Jonah Takagi combines innovative style and steadfast utility in his design of the MatterMade F/K/A Table Lamp. Initially inspired by a saucepan, the shade is made from powder-coated steel. Three legs extend at its base allowing it to stay remain stable— even when placed on uneven ground.
