Rearranging your furniture is easy enough but your lighting tends to stay where its been since you moved in—limited by the location of available outlets. Or it was limited at least, until the folks at Modern Lantern designed a table lamp that doesn’t need them.
The Modern Lantern is powered by a Li-Ion battery seated in the lamp base. The battery is rated for 12 hours of continuous use and recharges in 2.5 hours using a separate charging station. The lamp employs an LED bulb and is available in six styles ranging from $240-320. It weighs only about six pounds in total and is obviously portable meaning it can double as a very awkward flashlight as well. They could actually be really useful for home stagers—people who decorate houses that are for sale—who are constantly moving furniture from house to house. [Modern Lantern via Apartment Therapy]
