Lamp It Up: 10 Stylish Picks Under $50

Lamp it up

In this weekly column, I'm sharing chic home decor tips and finds for the budget-conscious decorista. This week, we're talking lamps! Check out my blog, A Vintage Splendor, for more style tips.

Adding a pop of pattern, color, or texture is always an easy way to give a tired room a little boost. One of my favorite ways to do just that is with a lamp - bonus points since a lamp is functional, too, helping to illuminate a nightstand, accent table or desk. The best part is that a stylish lamp doesn't have to cost a lot - you could say lamps light up your style without lightening your wallet!
If you ever tire of the style of your lamp, you can give you lamp new life with a new shade: change the color of the shade (orange to blue), fabric (silk to linen), or shape (round drum to rectangular) – voilà!

Whether you’d like to liven (or brighten) up your space, these 10 lamps will add drama and tons of style for under $50:
