table lamp extravaganza

for the last week or so i've been building two big guides for table lighting. ac and i have been trying to find a desk lamp we both approve of (we share our bedroom office space) so i've been shopping for a while now. i thought i'd compile some of my favorite into two guides: lamps grouped by style and lamps under or around $100. my favorites are grouped by style but because the price skewed a little high on those i figured it was only fair to create a slideshow of lighting that was cute but still affordable. you can click here to check out the budget lighting, here for the non-budget lighting and here to check out the home page for guides i've created so far (beds, bedding, desks, dining chairs, etc.) a guide to ceiling and floor lights is up next...

grace, we've had the larger version of nicholas furrow's red light district lamp for about a year, and i must say - it's my husband's favorite thing in our whole apartment. the light is VERY red, so its utility as a desk lamp is kind of questionable, but as an atmospheric piece, yeow! it's off the charts.

i think nicholas made a few green versions when he first started with the lamps (dave at the future perfect had a few), but there must have been fewer of those vintage shades - i haven't seen that version in years. i bet those would be beautiful as well.

I'm confused - slide 9 seems to have 8 lamps and only 7 listed in the description.

hmm...slide number eight has eight lamps and eight sources, slide nine has seven lights and 5 descriptions because the little trio of mibo lamps is all a variation on one lamp- the link goes to the lamp with the different shade options. did you mean a different slide?

ah! you mean the affordable lighting guide.

slide number nine IS missing one, you're right. so sorry, i'll fix that next week when i go to the office. that piece is from target as well.

Thanks so much for this guide. The lamp without a lampshade next to my living room couch has been taunting me since I moved in 2 months ago.

I actually think that there are a lot of decently cute table lamps for not very much - I actually got a cute mini lamp for only $25 at Mxyplxyz or some other variation of those letters...

However, a floor lamp has taken me weeks and I still haven't found one I really like.
