Black and gold are colors that evoke luxury and class, and a pair of black and gold bedside lamps is an easy way to achieve a sophisticated look in any room. Whether you want to elevate your bedroom or add a touch of glamor to your dining room, a black and gold lamp is the perfect solution.
The Color of Light
When shopping for a lamp, consider the amount of light you need. If you regularly read before sleep, a lamp with adjustable brightness will let you illuminate your book or screen without irritating your eyes. And if you share a bed with someone who likes to start counting sheep early in the evening, a dimming function can help both of you avoid disturbing each other.
The Size of the Light
The amount of space you have for a lamp will also affect your choices. If you have a tiny room, consider a lamp with a small shade or no shade at all; this type of lamp takes up less space than a lamp with a large shade. If you have a larger room, go with a taller lamp with a large shade; this type of lamp will cast a brighter light.
If you’re a fan of modern art, you might prefer a black and gold table lamp with a minimalist design. For instance, the Xiaomi Mi LED Desk Lamp has a near-seamless base that’s complemented by a red flat cord ribbon that wraps around the base of the light and connects the three main components. The result is a sleeker, more minimalist design that earned it a Red Dot and an iF World Design Guide award in 2017.
A Bedside Lamp That’s Totally Cordless
If your living room is as neatly organized as the rest of your house, you probably don’t have any need for a lamp with a cord. However, if you live in an apartment or you have a small child that you love to keep close to you, a cordless lamp can be a lifesaver. This cordless LED lamp is available in a variety of finishes and is completely portable, so you can use it anywhere, even when you’re out of reach.
There are a wide range of black and gold table lamps to choose from, from antique and vintage pieces to contemporary editions. Frequently made of metal, glass or brass, black and gold table lamps have been in production for years. They can be found in a variety of styles, from Mid-Century Modern to Modern and Hollywood Regency.

The Perfect Lamp for Your Nightstand
For your bedside, a traditional lamp with a long, straight-lined shade works best; you don’t want the bulb to obstruct your view while you’re reading in the dark. The shade should extend far enough to provide a medium-to-soft glow when you’re not in the dark, and it should be high enough that the light isn’t too bright.
