Sometimes the best place to look for nursery accessories is a store that has nothing to do with children. Case in point, while browsing through the new Urban Outfitters catalog there were a few lamps we thought were very sweet and charming -- and inexpensive to boot. Their vintage-inspired whimsical Chirp shade and Wise Owl base (which reminds us of the Tootsie Pop Owl) comes in under $50. Perusing their Web site, these also caught our eye...
For the nonconformist - the Ceiling Parasol will add a soft light to any nursery. And we couldn't believe it was currently on sale for only $3.99 (the cord is sold separately.)
The fun gnome lamp actually has an internal LED light and is also on sale for only $9.99. This little guy runs on three AAA batteries and comes in white, green or light blue. For the traditionalist - Urban Outfitters offers more classic lamps you can mix or match with various shades. The Spool Lamp base is $36 and is shown here with the Washi Flower shade.
And, the ultra dramatic Trailing Rose lamp, $48, is softened up for a nursery with a pastel blue shade. With many more choices, several under $50, the hardest choice we had was which lamp to pick.
