Light up your decor brilliantly with new lamps.

Lamps add both function and beauty to your home. 

 

Too often lamps become an afterthought to a decorating project when we’re exhausted from planning other details. In reality, they’re the perfect finish to a room because they create a feeling of warmth and atmosphere. It’s important to focus on lamps for a beautifully completed room decor.

 

Function is definitely key to selecting lamps since different types of lamps and light bulbs provide various qualities of light. Work with a pro to help plan your entire lighting scheme, which often includes recessed lighting, hanging lights, lamps and more.

 

The style, color, shape and materials of a lamp should complement the style of your décor. Lamps may add a distinctive touch that stands out and becomes a focal point, or they can fit into the background. The choice is yours. A lamp can be traditional or modern, masculine or feminine, and embellished or clean in look.

 

Think of all the places you can add a beautiful lamp to not only provide additional illumination, but also create beautiful ambiance:  

  • A dining room buffet

  • A foyer console table

  • A bedroom nightstand or dresser

  • An end table or side table in the living room or great room

  • The vanity in a powder room

  • The desk in a home office     

 

Of course, not all lamps perch on a table-like surface in your home. Floor lamps add a beautiful mix, sitting next to almost any piece of furniture in almost any room. Focus on updating your lamps this season to create a brilliant fashion statement and additional lighting.
