We are well and truly in the trenches of winter right now, and quite frankly, it sucks. If you’re in desperate search of a quick remedy to this grim season, I would suggest looking no further than the humble sunset lamp.
If you’re wondering what the flip a sunset lamp is, it’s that thing you’ve been seeing all over social media over the last six months. It’ll bask your room in a warm, golden glow and transport you to a gloriously balmy arvo on an European vacay.
What TF is a sunset lamp?
Sunset projection lamps have been blowing up all over social media, and it’s not hard to see why. Basically, they’re a fancy ass light that projects a warm, beautiful glow across your room (whether that’s on the ceiling, walls or anywhere else you’d enjoy having it). It can transform any space into a calming oasis where everything is drenched in the soft sun. They’re similar to galaxy projectors, but instead of staring up at the stars, it feels like you’re floating in the sun.
The lamps initially blew up on TikTok, with videos featuring the product having over a million hefty views collectively. Given we’re in the middle of winter and the sun buggers off before work ends, they’re becoming a homewares staple to keep the daylight glow going a little bit longer.

Best sunset lamps to light up your life
Whether you’re looking to create a warm glow or a fiery blaze, there’s a sunset lamp out there for every kind of golden hour fanatic. We’ve rounded up our favourites ranging from surprisingly affordable to undeniably boujie.
Happy basking, friends.
This is the OG sunset lamp you would’ve seen exploding on social media. This lamp is built to last, with a head that can be rotated 180 degrees. This allows you to change the size of the sunset as you cast it onto the wall or ceiling making it even more atmospheric.
This sunset lamp gives off more of a red colour than a golden glow which is great if you’re looking for an intense colour option. There’s nothing quite like watching a fiery sunset to help you wind down after a long day.
If you’re short on space, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on any of the fun. This sunset floor light comes with a 2 metre long cable with a switch, so you can pop it in the very corner of your room and still enjoy a warm glow throughout.
If you’re looking for something a little different, these lamps come in the form of a little robot man (think WALL-E but chicer). It’s cute enough to take pride of place on your desk or bedside table, ready to be flicked on whenever you need an ambient moment.
We had to include a boujie option in the round-up and this is definitely it. This lamp is a lot taller than the others we’ve suggested, so if you’re happy for it to take pride of place in your room then it’s definitely worth the investment.
