The stock at West Elm is constantly updated, but you can always count on finding quality lighting options with a few quirky bursts of color just for fun. We like West Elm’s lighting designs because it’s easy to stick to a color theme as you change the shape and form of your lamps from room to room.
Schoolhouse takes classic lighting shapes — pendants, round recessed spotlights, tree-shaped table lamps — and gives them a bit of a one-up with fun colors and functional enhancements. For example, a simple wall hanger gets a nifty makeover with plug-in functionality and style inspired by Shaker designs.
The great thing about Wayfair is the huge choice. From bathroom lighting and mini hanging lamps to table lamps and recessed spotlights in the living room, the retailer has something to offer. We’ve lost ourselves (in a good way) amongst all the track lighting – it’s time to finally say goodbye to that dated set hanging above your kitchen island and usher in a new vibe.
Like Wayfair, you could spend days perusing the lighting options on Amazon. To make your search easier, target a specific design element, such as “glass pendant light,” to find a unique option at an affordable price.
If high-end interior design catches your eye, check out Interior Define. While the brand is probably best known for its furniture offerings, you’ll also find sculptural options including wall sconces, semi-recessed mounts, table lamps, and chandeliers that are sure to catch more than a few eyes. The desk lamps, some of which feature textured concrete and ceramic, are particularly intriguing.
Your home’s lighting should be fun; that might mean mixing and matching different materials…or opting for vanity lighting with a fun, floral shape. Mitzi covers all bases from simple sconces to pastel chandeliers.
One of the quickest ways to add visual interest to your living room or dining room is to incorporate unexpected texture into your lighting design.

Turn to Gantri for the bold pops of color, perfect for brightening up a dining room or nursery. Spanning table, floor and wall lamps, this retailer injects a burst of personality into its cute and quirky designs – perfect for the young at heart. In addition, the brand is known for using plant-based materials in its work instead of harmful plastics.

Trust us, there’s a world of ceiling fan designs out there. Lamps Plus is a great store for things like upgrading your fan situation.
