10 Easy Pieces: Diffused Glow Bedside Lamps

February 12, 2020

One of the best things I bought last year was a small opaque glass table lamp for the bedroom. It emits a smooth, calming glow that, particularly when put on a dimmer, is one of the greatest ways to ease into a restful sleep at the end of the day. (Not to mention that diffused light is very flattering for romantic moments.)

This lamp style is typically made with an LED or halogen bulb diffused through an opal glass shade. I opted for the FLOS Glo-Ball, but there are so many others; some which are completely cordless and are great for a dimly-lit outdoor dinner party as well. Here are our favorites.
