The immobility of a wall lamp keeps many buyers from trading in their bulky floor lamps. Fortunately, these wall lamps aren’t limited like most models. Their long arms and flexibility combine the best of both types of lamps so that you’ll never need a traditional lamp again.
1. Crane Wall Light
This long swing arm wall lamp uses one of the most dependable designs known to man – that of the construction crane. Its perfectly suspended head hovers over you, lighting the type print of your favorite novel or simply illuminating the room.
Similar to the Hallo Light, the Crane Wall Light is height adjustable and comes with a 180º range of motion. Fasten it to any secure point on your wall and watch it work!
2. Hans Andersen Wall Sconce
This wall lamp has not one, but two lamp heads! The Hans Andersen Wall Sconce is twice the delight; it has two lamp shades, one of which can turn in either direction for better lighting and different angles.
Whether you want to light your entire room or have a little extra wattage for reading, the Hans Andersen Wall Sconce is the perfect wall lamp for you.
3. Hallo Light
The Hallo Light takes its inspiration from a similar design by Jean Prouvé, but it has some new and improved features. Not only does it swing from side to side for different angles, but the long arm is height adjustable as well.
This is accomplished with a simple leather strap; all you have to do is use the strap like a pulley to raise or lower the arm. It’s a primitive, yet effective approach that leads to an ingenious design.
4. Mantis Wall Sconce
Much like its namesake, the Mantis Wall Sconce uses its long swinging arm to expertly position itself through a full range of 360º motion.
With a pleasantly mid-century design, the Mantis Wall Lamp is both chic and spacesaving. It perches wherever you may need it with a grace reminiscent of the praying mantis, as beautiful as it is versatile.
5. Potence Wall Light
With a healthy 180º of motion, the Potence Wall Light can illuminate every corner of any room with its 7-foot long neck. The wooden knob on the lamp’s base rotates it from one side to the other as easily as turning a light switch on and off.
The reach of the Potence Wall Light makes it ideal for larger rooms, but its flexibility allows it to be used in a room of smaller size as well.
6. Counterbalance Light
If you’re looking for the longest swing arm wall lamp available, you need the Counterbalance Light from designer Daniel Rybakken. It uses a (you guessed it) counterbalance system to hold the lamp’s head at a determined height, which you can adjust if need be.
You can put this incredible wall lamp in virtually any position, and it will stay fixed thanks to its excellent engineering.
7. Ginger Lamp
Ginger sounds like such a sweet name! Rather than belong to some feisty redhead, however, Ginger is the name of this particular swing arm wall lamp. It looks very much like a modern pendant light, but attached to it is a swinging arm with a wide range of motion for different lighting angles.
What is truly unique about the Ginger Lamp is that it’s made of pressure-treated wood and paper, which you wouldn’t be able to guess from its sleek appearance.
8. Bellmann Wall Lamp
The Bellman Wall Lamp made of powder-coated steel with brass accents, is an amazing eye catcher in your home. The long arm, adjustable in length, reaches into the room and can be turned in either direction above the sofa, table or bed. The lamp head can easily be turned up or down.
Available in black or white. In short: Bellman by Pholc is a very stylish and practical lamp.
9. 265 Wall Lamp
Modelled on a fishing rod, the 265 Wall Light can be either a centerpiece or a subtle accent. Push it flat against a wall, and it can blend in with any room.
Pull it out into the middle of the space, and it becomes a striking modernist statement. The lamp head rotates 360º, so it can be focused on any area of the space. Find out more about the 265 Wall Light.
