Ideas for portable, battery-powered lights

I keep spotting small-scale table lights used in restaurants and bars, which cast a really atmospheric glow onto the table. I think they’re battery powered, because they don’t have any wires. I love the idea of having something similar at home – can you find me one?

Small, battery-powered lights in all kinds of styles are now easier to find thanks to low-energy LED technology. Collier Webb has a collection of just the kind of product you’re looking for, including this ‘Mini Bourse’ light, which is a smaller, portable version of one of its bestsellers: the lack of wires means you’re not restricted to where your nearest plug socket is. As an alternative, Porta Romana has also released two of its table lamps as freestanding, battery-powered products.
