Did you have guests over for Thanksgiving? How was the lighting? You no doubt consider plenty of elements when you have folks visit your home, but don't leave out what we consider one of the most vital ones: how your party is lit. More
Sometimes I torture myself by doing a search for Art Nouveau furnishings on 1stDibs. I covet the impossibly beautiful lamps, mirrors, plates and furniture — all impossibly priced. You won't impress your purist collector friends (and some of these pieces are very loose interpretations of the style!), but these pieces can give your room a bit of Art Nouveau-esque whimsy and fun.
Why are owls so popular in children's decor? It may owe to their nocturnal nature being, unfortunately, aligned with that of new parents. It's true that owls may be a bit overdone these days, but I spotted a beautiful owl lamp in a shop window this morning while dropping my son at school and have had them on the brain all day. More
I saw the New Century Modern Lamp on Design Sponge a few days ago and was immediately inspired. That beautiful lamp that threw me into a Midcentury modern tailspin searching for other table lamps that also fit this style. What I love most about midcentury style light fixtures is that they often feature fun shaped bases and vibrant colors. More
Amidst the great Lightbulb Wars of 2011— Re-Nest's highly-charged (I couldn't resist) review of energy-efficient bulbs— lamps are neutral territory. With so much effort being put into finding the ideal bulb, I've been thinking about the kind of lamp whose eco-conscious construction and style might be fitting the victor. Roost's recycled aluminum lamp base is certainly a contender. More

Aim the IR gun shaped remote and shoot out the lights or pull the trigger to turn it back on. Watch in action below... More
We don't normally post about lighting unless it's got an element of hi-tech integrated into the form and function. But we're going to make an exception and share what might be possibly the cutest desk lamp. We're birds of a feather and agree with our friend Holly over at Decor8, who reported about these avian shaped lights spied at 100% Design in London. We only wished Atelier Areti's Alhouette bird lamp was spec'ed out for use with an LED bulb instead of a hot burning halogen, but that might be as simple as swapping out bulbs.

One of the most important design elements in a home is the lighting. From the outward appearance of the lamp to the type of light they emit, lamps can greatly impact the look and feel of a room. Testing out energy efficient bulbs for our Lightbulb Wars has me thinking about eco friendly lamps that will enhance your space without destroying the environment. Here are four of my favorite recent discoveries.
