Lately I've been taking notice of portable table lamps. They're wireless, so super clean aesthetically when placed inside, and also totally functional to take outside (and good to have around for power outages, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.). Here are three indoor/outdoor lighting options I'm really liking right now:
1. The M Lamp ($220) designed by David Irwin was inspired by the archetypal miner's lamps of 19th century North East England.
2. The Barebones Canyon Lantern ($80) has a retractable light and a USB port that will charge devices while you're on the road or at your desk.
3. The Snow Peak Tulip Lantern ($150) looks as smart as it is: its bulb has a patented focusing lens that automatically adjusts the focus of the light's beam.
