The simple choice

Limelights Brushed Steel Lamp

Limelights’ lamp has a much more traditional design that’s simply timeless. The fabric lampshade is available in a variety of colors, and the brushed steel base looks fantastic. You’ll only find one USB port for charging, but at just $20, that’s to be expected.

We’ve previously been impressed with TaoTronics’ affordable Bluetooth headphones, so if you want to pick up something you know you can rely on for a long time to come, you can’t go wrong with the company’s Desk Lamp or Bedside Lamp.

Alternatively, if you want something more affordable with a classier look, Limelights’ lamp is another excellent choice. This lamp has a traditional look, but the most significant benefit is that there are more than 15 color options for the lampshade, providing the ability to match any room décor.
