Lighting fixtures are one of the most important factors I consider when I design a space. Whether you’ve got tons of natural light, or none at all, a beautiful light is a perfect way to add drama and personality to a room. It’s not just for task purposes, but aesthetically as well! Below I have hand picked some of my favorite fixtures that will add the wow factor to any home for under $500!
Design Within Reach is one of the best places to purchase something unique and modern. Their pieces truly reflect sophistication and originality. Check out these fixtures I found… The Coral Pendant from Design Within Reach portrays a natural and minimal look. It’s 23.5 inch diameter would be the perfect pendant above a breakfast table!
The Satellite Pendant is another mid century modern option from Design Within Reach. It’s the perfect fixture to create a retro flair in your space! And the large scale makes the fixture have presence!
West Elm is another favorite company of mine that offers a wide range of table lamps, floor lamps, sconces, and chandeliers. You could be shopping for a bedroom, living room or entry and you can always find something at West Elm that wont break the bank! These pendants from West Elm come in an antiqued mercury glass or clear glass. The have a clean and contemporary shape and can go in a transitional or modern space. Depending on the space, adding 1-3 pendants in a row will add a finished look over your island or rectangular dining table with plenty of light! Or even create your own cluster of lights using 3-5 of them together hanging at different heights.
Looking for a floor lamp? Look no more… Pottery Barn has a “Photographer’s Tripod Lamp” that will complement an office, bedroom or even family room, giving off a “well traveled” look.
Another great resource that I use all the time is Lamps Plus. This chrome base lamp would be perfect as a pair for any entry way. It has a four-way switch to control the lighting and a glamourous chrome base design to add a unique look to your room.
Lastly, is this eye catching pendant from Lamps Plus featuring amazing design by Possini and made of metal. Pair this with a sleek round dining table and you’ve got a modern show stopper!
