Friday Finds: Five Favorite Table Lamps

September 13, 2013

Shopping for lighting is almost as much fun as walking into Tiffany’s. There are so many gorgeous fixtures to pick from. It can be overwhelming if you don’t have a plan. Somehow I have managed to whittle a collection of table lamps down to five that have caught my eye.

A long standing style that seems to be a must in any preppy home is the Ginger Jar. It comes in a wide selection of sizes and colors. Still, when I think of the classic ginger jar table lamp, it the blue and white pattered ones that come to mind. It’s a traditional style that offers a crisp, clean and refreshing look.


Add texture and interest with this round rope table lamp. The rope offers a great nautical appeal and would be a great option for a cottage or a lakeside retreat.


Does your living room need a little bling? This mercury glass table lamp with a matte gray shade offers a lot of charm.  It has a fabulous understated sophistication that works well in contemporary space.


Louis Poulsen has designed many wonderful lighting fixtures over the years. Among my favorites is the Panthella table lamp. Here it is in a silver finish. It also comes in white and silver with a silver diffuser. It just has a great modern look that works in a variety of design schemes, modern, contemporary, or eclectic….


I fell in love with the Foscarini Caboche collection when I worked at on online lighting retailer. It’s simply stunning when lit. My office had the floor model and it was such a joy to walk in and turn it on every morning. It definitely doesn’t fit with every design scheme, and deserves its own unique space.  A modern white monochromatic scheme would set this apart, I think. The sides are a polymer plastic that light dances through.
