When interior designer Celerie Kemble debuted her lighting collection with Arteriors, the wicker Parasol Lamp, with its exaggerated scallop shade, became an instant design icon. However, at nearly $1,000, the lamp was out of reach for many.

Lately though, I’ve spotted a whole new crop of delightful rattan lamps in whimsical shapes— at prices that are much more affordable. I’ve always loved decorating with wicker and rattan pieces, so I was ultra thrilled to find these beauties. Below, I’ve shared a few of my favorites, plus, some styling tips for how to use them in a room.

Lila Table Lamp

This cutie hails from Soho Home, which is Soho House’s homewares line. (I don’t know why I didn’t venture onto their website earlier, because I’m kind of obsessed with everything!) While this lamp is definitely splurge-y, it almost doubles as a piece of art. Place it atop a credenza, dresser, or even a bar cart for a beach-y chic look that will never go out of style.

Sutton Rattan Table Lamp

This squiggly statement-maker caught my attention when I was browsing Anthropologie’s new lighting arrivals. Again, this piece is almost a sculpture in its own right, so keep the styling more minimal. Simply place it beside a stack of books or a decorative tray, and you’re golden.

Dimond Lighting Worldly Goods Collection Sycamore Hill Table Lamp

Alternatively, you could opt for a rattan base and a simple shade. This gourd-shaped lamp features a classic white shade, while the finial plays to the wicker trend. This lamp would also look lovely on a nightstand and would be equally charming in a child’s room or nursery.

Seta Wicker Table Lamp

A bit more loud and modern with its straight column base and wavy shade, this lamp would be right at home in either a contemporary or midcentury-inspired interior. Note that at nearly 30 inches high, it is quite large!
