SPPN Top 10: Table Lamps

I have a bit of a table lamp obsession.  So much so that I have several tucked away in closets because I don't have enough table top space for all of them!  But it's nice to be able to switch them out every now and then to get a different look.  My favorite places to by lamps are Target, Ikea, Home Goods, TJ Maxx and Marshalls.  They have great selections at unbeatable prices.  Here are my favorite table lamp styles:

I love a clear glass lamp base, as seen in the first three above.  White is always right, and a silver base adds a dose of glam to a room that I always appreciate.

A colored, gourd shaped base has always caught my eye, as seen in the first two.  I also like the skinnier version of the gourd, like the black lamp on the end.  A cascading capiz shell lamp has a soft spot in my heart, and looks great in a coastal cottage style home.  Lastly, I love the pharmacy style table lamps that come in a variety of finishes, shown here in an antique brass finish. 

You can usually find similar styles of these lamps at all of the stores I mentioned previously.  Of course another favorite source is thrift and antique stores for one-of-a-kind finds and lamps that you can spiff up with spray paint or a fabric covered shade.  What are your favorite lamp sources?

  1. Target is usually my favorite - even if I find something at TJ Maxx I usually want to switch the shade and Target has great shades too! Pier 1 can be a good lamp source from time to time, and once in a blue moon, the HSN special decorator's collections! I usually strike out at Ikea on lamps :(

  2. How did you know I am currently searching for a new lamp for our living room? The one I bought at Target doesn't have enough weight for the table/room, but the skinny black gourd style in the second set would be perfect. I never would have thought to look at Macy's. Seriously -- thank you!

  4. Found my lamp ... at Lowe's of all places! Loved the ones at Macy's, but couldn't justify having a lamp that was more expensive than the end table on which it was placed.

    I had to buy a different shade, but still a great deal!
