Cordless Table Lamp Style Guide

I love creating Style Guides of home decor that I think will resonate with my readers, like my favorite brass sconces, coffee table decor, or even coffee tables themselves! So today, I’ve searched high and low and put together a list of the most beautiful cordless lamps available. I’ve included both small lamps and floor lamps and a variety of price points so you’ll be sure to find one you love.

I originally wanted a cordless lamp for my downstairs bar area to create ambiance in this otherwise dark area. There is an outlet, but it’s around the corner and there’s no way to disguise the lamp cord sneaking along the wall. So I thought a cordless lamp would be perfect!

Unfortunately, like most of my kitchen, that space isn’t finished yet so I can’t show you how cute the portable lamp would look there. Instead, I’ll show you in my kitchen.

What is a Cordless Lamp

A cordless lamp is just as the name says, a lamp without a cord! This type of lamp doesn’t need to be plugged into an electrical outlet, Instead, cordless lamps are powered by rechargeable batteries.

Cordless lamps are equipped with LED bulbs giving them a higher light output with lower wattage usage. This allows the rechargeable battery to last for several hours on one charge.

Overall, cordless lamps offer the convenience of portability and flexibility, allowing users to place them wherever needed without being restricted by the presence of electrical outlets or cords.

How Do Cordless Lamps Work

To charge cordless lamps, you plug it into an electrical outlet using a charging cable. The lamp’s batteries are charged via this connection, often through a port located on the lamp’s base or body.

The battery life of cordless lamp operation depends on factors such as the capacity of the batteries, the brightness setting of the lamp, and whether additional features like dimming or color-changing are being used. Most cordless lamps offer up to 7-100 hours of continuous use on a single charge.

Benefits of Cordless Lamps


One of the most significant advantages of cordless lamps is their unparalleled versatility. No longer constrained by the need for a nearby power outlet, these lamps can be placed virtually anywhere, from cozy reading nooks to outdoor patios. This allows homeowners to experiment with lighting configurations not possible before.


Gone are the days of fumbling with unsightly cords or being tethered to a specific spot for adequate lighting. Cordless lamps offer unparalleled convenience, allowing users to effortlessly move them from room to room or even take them outdoors for alfresco dining or entertaining. With rechargeable batteries powering these lamps, there’s no need to worry about constantly replacing batteries or hunting for an available power source.


Beyond their portability and energy efficiency, cordless lamps often boast a range of innovative features designed to enhance the user experience. From dimmable settings and remote control capabilities to built-in USB ports for charging devices or even motion detection, these lamps combine modern technology with timeless design to meet the evolving needs of today’s homeowners.

Low Energy Consumption

Cordless lamps are renowned for their low energy usage, typically powered by rechargeable batteries and energy-efficient LED bulbs. This eco-friendly design ensures prolonged battery life and minimal electricity consumption, making them environmentally conscious lighting solutions.

The Best Cordless Lamps

Admittedly, everyone has their own definition of what’s considered “the best” but in this case, I judged these lamps by appearance. A lot of cordless lamps have a kitschy look (i.e. mushroom shape or even shaped like a duck) or a modern vibe. That’s not really my style, so instead I searched for traditional and transitional style lamps that could work in almost any room of the home.

I’m not sure I’ll keep this particular table lamp because it’s a bit more yellow gold than I had hoped for my space. I purchased this one as well to try, but accidentally had it shipped to my son in college instead of my home. Whoops! That’s what I get for not checking the shipping address. Now I have to wait for him to return for Spring Break and bring my lamp to me. Lol!
