Lamps are some of the best accessories to use in your home. Not only do these lights infuse a warm, soft glow into a space, they can also bring plenty of style and color to a room. A room without lamps is like an outfit without jewelry - it looks dull and unfinished. Because of their super powers I have lamps in nearly every room of our house. In fact I think the kitchen and bathrooms are the only lamp-free zones. I'm obsessed with symmetry so I especially like to use lamps in pairs, but I have a few loners in the place as well. Whether it has a mate or not, I love each lamp in our house and all have a bit of a story behind them. So I thought it would be fun to take you through a lamp tour of our home. We'll start in the entry...
Also in the living room, this shapely gold and silver number came from the Arteriors warehouse sale so it was a bargain. The silk shade also came from the same sale and its price tag was only $10!
These cloisonne lamps in our dining room are the latest edition to my lamp collection. My husband got them for me for Christmas! They were purchased at William-Christopher Design in Dallas.
They are made from cloisonne tea jars and were mounted on acrylic bases. The black drum shades are perfect on them, don't you think? It's a silly detail to dwell on, but I also love the French-style gold silk electrical cord!
This super tall table lamp was also bought at the Arteriors warehouse sale and here it's being used to light up a mini bar I set up in the dining room for dinner parties.
In our den, the pair of blue lamps behind the sofa was purchased at HomeGoods. They have a great selection of colorful lamps and most are under $50 a piece.
The vintage chrome pharmacy lamp was from my grandmother's house. It has an adjustable height base and a flexible gooseneck so it's perfect for reading.
This is a lamp from West Elm that a stalked forever. I finally found a place for it in this little bedroom and I just adore it...it's a great, compact size and I love the tall shade.
This is the mate for the other tall black lamp used at the minibar in the dining room. This one has a piped linen shade that also cam from the Arteriors warehouse sale. It's serving here on the nightstand of a guest bedroom.
This glass sphere lamp also came from HomeGoods. Although it came with a shade, I put a piped linen shade on it to tie in with the lamp on the nightstand.
In our master bedroom, there are two crystal lamps on each nightstand. They can be purchased at Restoration Hardware along with the silk drum shades.
|This floor lamp in our bedroom is made by Arteriors and can be purchased from Layla Grayce.|
In our study, I found these two accordion task lamps at the Wisteria outlet in Dallas. I love that they clamp on and don't take up much desk space.
I hope you enjoyed the lamp tour! I'm curious to know whether any of you are as lamp-obsessed as I am. Let me know and also be sure to include any of your favorite sources for lamps. Some of mine are:
