I’m in the market for lamps for my bedside table, and I’m a bit overwhelmed – or rather, underwhelmed – by my options. Why is it, that the majority of lighting is so ugly? Frills and tassels and marabou lamp shades, it’s foul! Ok I exaggerate, there are beautiful lamps out there… I just can’t afford them! Lighting’s one of those things that I don’t want to spend money on, a lamp runs one to two hundred dollars and I need two of them! Here are three beautiful examples from the pages of Lonny, all three different types of lamps.  

Which would you choose?

  1. I actually have that glass lamp and I love them! It’s a fresh look and very modern. I had the toughest time finding ones I liked as well that were the right proportion.

  2. Cristina,
    I like wall sconces for bedrooms. I read every night before getting shut eye and find it bright enough to see the text but not bright enough to disturb hubby. Plus, I think they can make a room look “expensive”.

  3. Oh, I hear you. It took me over a year to pick out bedside lighting, which I ended up hating anyway.

    If you go for scones, try Home Decorators Collection. They have a nice one that used to be only $30 but great lighting. (I think it may have gone back up to $80 in some colors.)
