I know that things like “lamps” and “daylight” were invented a pretty long time ago, but the Slimline Lamp takes both of these timeless classics to a new level. The Slimline Lamp is a small-ish, stylish, versatile lamp, but it lights up a room just as much as the big, in-your-face, in-your-way lamp you’ve been wanting to get rid of. (We all have that lamp. I mean, I used to have that lamp. Now I have this beautiful thang.)
Quick FYI, The Daylight Company gave me this lamp in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and I only partner with brands I like and trust.
5 Reasons Why You’ll Love the Slimline Lamp
1. It’s powerful.
We already established that we let bigger, more bothersome lamps stick around because hey, they actually give off a lot of light and isn’t that what a lamp is for? I get it. But the Slimline Lamp has you covered without getting in your way. I mean, there’s 80 tiny light bulbs at work in this little lamp. That’s 79 more than I was using before!
Check out the picture above. You can see my photo setup and then you can see the picture I took. My studio was in darkness except for the Slimline Lamp and I still got a great photo – no weird warm glow or glare, either. Seen in the pictures here is the Slimline S LED Table Lamp.
2. It's low-key.
My sewing room can get really busy and chaotic and y’all know I don’t need any more distractions. I ALSO don’t need another huge piece of equipment taking up space. Thank you, Slimline Lamp, for basically being a normal lamp that went on a really successful diet.
[To tell you the truth, I was approached by another craft lamp company last year. In exchange for one of their lamps, I was to write an honest review. Sounded good to me! I was on board and ready to launch...until I got the lamp in the mail. It was huge and heavy and looked...well it looked like a robot from the Jetsons and not in a cute Rosie-kind-of-way. Since I didn’t like the lamp, I didn’t feel comfortable writing publicly about it, so I had to back out of writing the post. No the case with my Slimline!]
3. It's sleek.
I’m stylish, right? Okay, so I TRY to be stylish, and keep my sewing room super trendy. That means no dorky lamps allowed! The Slimline definitely ups my room’s coolness factor (and we all know I can use all the help I can get.) In fact, if I squint the right way, I can hardly see it! It’s super skinny with a nice brushed chrome finish. Also, maybe I need a higher prescription on my glasses?
That luscious stack of jersey you see on my cutting table is the exciting start to my next big pattern release. Eeeek! But I'll tell you more about that later. Back to Mr. Lampie.
4. It's light.
I’m usually totally cool with the Slimline chillin by my side, but in the case that I have one of those “Everything Outta My Way!!!” moments, this lamp is really light and easy to move. Definitely a plus. Based on what I'm working on, I sometimes clamp it to my cutting table or my sewing table. Now that I type that, I'm realizing I should just get two of these. Did you hear that, Daylight Company? 😉
5. It's flexible.
This is one of those traits I knew I needed in a husband, but never knew how much I wanted it in a lamp. The Slimline is reeallly flexi-bendy, so you can light your project at literally any angle. This is perfect for those late-night sewing sessions.
