I Found A Cool Lamp That Charges My Phone and Plays Music!
Jamie Hatthaway | Saturday, April 17, 2021
LET'S TALK LIGHTING.

Let's just say I have been sitting in the dark until now. Hardly two months ago, there it was, the light at the end of the tunnel in a zoom call with my boss.

So, I sat there nodding my head and trying my best not to come off too crazy or make it evident that I wasn't listening to a word she was saying. It was so hard to—I was mesmerized. We're now approaching the end of our call, and I slyly mentioned what a gorgeous lamp she owned. Then she paused, so long that I thought her network was reconnecting. I froze and started thinking about the worst-case scenarios in my head, including that I was getting fired. Right? I know. Well, maybe I am a tad crazy. 


What is Articture?

To no one's surprise, I was not fired. Yay! In fact, I may have scored some brownie point as my boss came back into action and went on and on about this lamp. The features, the quality, the aesthetics, she would not stop talking, and I was all ears this time around!  She told me about Articture, a brand she had found out about recently... I checked them out on social media and looked up their reviews and was pleasantly surprised!

WORTH THE HYPE?

Since its public debut, the Light of Life has been constantly selling out! Every time they get some in stock, they get bought right up! And, most of these have been repeat purchases… meaning, people love them so much, they buy even more!


Okay, but sometimes I don't trust social media, so I really went in deep to try and find some honest to goodness reviews of the product.

"The most intuitive light I’ve ever owned. Looks sharp, warm dimmable light, great sound, and charges my phone?! Every single person who’s seen it has complimented it. It’s so convenient being able to place my phone on it to charge. Also as soon as I press play on my phone for music, it plays immediately through the light’s speaker. It’s significantly superior sound to playing music through my phone alone. And the bass is decent for a little light. I would recommend a Light of Life to everyone. My only regret is that I don’t have one in every room in my house."
" How could you not fall in LOVE with this lamp? It has all the functions i'd want in a lamp for my side-table, all beautifully integrated in a modern design. The speakers are also great, neither tinny nor muffled, but good clear sound and decent bass to go with it! If you're in doubt about this product, don't be, just go buy it. Mine came within the week with no issues."
"This light was even better than I expected. It gives off the perfect low profile light and it has a built-in speaker for blue tooth that is an incredible quality. It also charges our phones. I use it in a large open style family room at our house on the lake where there are a lot of windows, but at night we needed something that didn't overpower the stars we can see from inside. I would buy another one if I needed it for another room."

I was sold.

Now let’s fast forward past the ordering, the waiting, and all that boring stuff, and voilà - my lamp has arrived... in only 3 days!!

I look at my home in a whole new light now! Pun intended! And yes, if you got this far reading, which I hope you did, you may be thinking that I'm slightly absurd about loving a lamp so much, but hear me out, this lamp isn't just a lamp; it's a functionality MACHINE!

By now, you must be thinking, 'what kind of magical transformer of a lamp is this?' I am going to break it down for you and list my favourite features for this light in no specific order: 


IT'S A CHARGER

This lamp wirelessly charges your phone. Yes you read that correctly. I didn’t know that this is what I wanted or needed, but after owning it for a few weeks, I can’t go without it. The luxury of being able to toss my lifeless phone on the base of this lamp with no worries of locating where I last placed my charging cord is PURE GOLD.

BEAUTIFUL SOUND QUALITY

Yes, this lamp is a speaker, also. I know what you're thinking - that's cool, but the quality can't be that great..... WRONG.

Again, no need for messy-looking wires—connect straight with your Bluetooth and listen to your favourite Spotify playlist even while it's on the charging dock! It's a win-win if you ask me. Or would that be a win-win-win?

BEAUTIFUL MATERIALS

Now it's time to talk about the quality materials that make up this elegant fixture. The lampshade is built of transparent and stunning cherrywood, where you can get the beauty of the wood grain as the light radiates through to brighten any room. Plus, all this linking and rooting from a solid steel tree trunk into the base of the lamp. I love the juxtaposition of the metal tree-inspired light created with natural wood.  

AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

My Light of Life lamp started in my bedroom. Great nightstand lamp, drop your phone on the charging dock and throw on one of your favourite podcasts to drift off to la-la land. Perfect. And, I mean this whole-heartedly when I state this—I missed my lamp when I wasn't in my bedroom, which I rarely am other than to sleep. This lamp, needed to be seen, it needed to be appreciated! So my light got upgraded to the living room—traffic city.

And, surprise, surprise, it looks just as great as it did in the bedroom! Sadly, due to lockdown, I haven't benefited from having people over and showing off my purchase. However, a few weeks into having the lamp resided in prime real estate, I was on my Wednesday Wine zoom hang with my friends to not one but three, immediately demanding details on my new lamp. The circle was now complete.  

UPDATE: So far, 6 months after, the light is just as beautiful as ever. They really chose the right materials. This is going to last a long time. The speaker quality has been consistent, and after getting a new phone, it's been charging even faster which was something I didn't expect at all!

NOW, HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

That was my first question when I originally heard about the Light of Life. Normally, when things are this good… they aren’t cheap!

But, I was so, so happy when I saw that this designer company wasn't here to rip me off. The Light of Life sells for $199, and after looking for comparable quality products including a designer lamp, speakers, and a wireless charger, I was looking in excess of $400. They've really put together an amazing product. when I compared what went into the Light of Life it's actually a bargain!

WAS IT WORTH THE PRICE?

Absolutely. There's no question about it. This Lamp has been a Godsend, and I get compliments on it literally every time someone sees it. So many of my friends have bought one after seeing it in my house.

It's even better than I thought it would be!


UPDATE

As of Wednesday, April 28, 2021, Articture is offering a special discount for US residents. But hurry, due to extremely high demand, Articture has sold over 3.5 million Light of Life's and is frequently in and out of stock. Due to its popularity and positive reviews, the company is so confident in their product that they are now keeping their products as limited edition drops. If it's in stock, grab it while you can!

(Hint: These make great gift ideas for family and friends!)

This bedside lamp looks great in the picture on the website, and now I have it, it looks amazing! It is more like an artwork, a sculpture. Moreover, it is very well built and sturdy! The wireless charger works well with my iPhone. I could easily pair my iPhone or my Echo Dot with the Bluetooth speaker and it sounds great; in fact, it sounds way better than I expected, and I have now put this lamp in the living room, so that I can use it to play Christmas songs!!

This lamp is beautifully designed and it gives all I need at home, office and in bed. The size and the weight of this lamp are perfect. I can carry it around and put it anywhere I want. Moreover, I love the function that it can play music through Bluetooth. The sound is from the speaker is great. The volume is easy to adjust from the phone or the lamp itself.

I would definitely recommend this product. By the way, the shipping is very fast; I received in within 2-3 days

Bought it as wife's birthday gift. I'm glad that I made this purchase. She absolutely loves it. Perfect bedside lamp with tons of features and beautiful characters. Dimmable lights and sleeping mode make perfect tone for sleeping. Wireless charging avoids cluster of charging cables. Bluetooth speaker connects fast and delivers beautiful sounds, and it just replaced my old speaker that I have to plug my old phone using 3.5mm connector, which cleans up the cluster again. The tree trunk looking lamp just matches our bedside table. Absolutely gorgeous. It's a little pricey but hey, it worth every buck because my wife has a great birthday gift and she is happy.

I got this lamp as a housewarming gift for my brother, who recently moved into an apartment. We were both pleasantly surprised by the quality of the entire product - from the very classy packaging, to the quality of the lamp itself! My brother loved it so much that he said it's the best housewarming gift he got!
