White Table Lamp

Now a days there are so many table lamp options out there for us to choose from, yet  I’m often drawn to white table lamps.  I like the simplicity it represents and the color white allows me to appreciate its shape without distraction.  It serves as a sculptural piece to the room without overwhelming the rest of the decoration.  I especially like to use it in the bedroom, where I think the philosophy “less is more” should apply.  A bedroom should be a space that is comfortable and serene.  No matter the design direction, a pair of beautifully shaped white table lamps seem to always bring that peaceful element.

I really like this Fiona table lamp from circa lighting.  It is very tall, though, so you will want to make sure that it is properly proportioned to the headboard.

Rope Pendant Light

I have always loved the look of clustered pendant lights.  It creates unexpected layers and a beautiful glow when the space is dark.  When I saw this room for 4-year-old triplets, designed by the Novogratz, I can’t help but notice the colorful rope pendant lights hanging over the custom-built desk.  It is such a fun way to add a pop of color to the space.

Restoration Hardware Lighting

I received the new Restoration Hardware Fall 2011 source book few days ago and I have to say I am really impressed with their new lighting collection.  Below are some of my favorites.

How fabulous are these Edison-style filament bulbs Pendants?  I would hang a bunch of them over a dining table and/or a kitchen counter.  And I just have to say I love, LOVE, a vintage looking black metal chandelier.

There are quite a few great lighting options for night stands and desks.

This 1940s Architect”s Boom Sconce has to be my favorite, I am think this could be a possible lighting candidate for my living room.

Mad about AJ Floor Lamp

It would be nice if I have $900 to spare, I would get the AJ Floor Lamp designed by Arne Jacobsen for Louis Poulsen Lighting Inc.  It has a quiet simplicity, and it also comes in a variety of colors.
