    1. A dimmable brass-finish LED table lamp so you can pair vintage style with modern convenience.

    Promising review: "I have had this lamp for about a week now and so far I am super happy with it. The whole lamp is very elegant with an antique copper color. The head and arm are adjustable, which allow you to find the perfect height and angle. No lightbulb is needed. The LED lamp is bright, and the brightness can be tuned easily through the sensory button. The whole lamp is really amazing and i am highly recommend it!" β€”Olivia

    Price: $43.99

    2. A minimalist table lamp whose soft light will create the perfect ~soothing ambiance~.

    Promising review: "It sets a romantic mood with warm, low lighting β€” perfect for the bedside or the coffee table. It also has a simple, classic design. I'm really enjoying it." β€”Alicia

    Price: $21.86

    3. A mixed-media table lamp that might make your desk someplace you actually want to work.

    Promising review: "This lamp is absolutely gorgeous. I purchased two in the mint green. The wood base transforms the traditional anglepoise lamp into a thing of beauty. The lamp is easy to assemble and requires no tools. Shipping was quick and the item was well-protected by recyclable materials. I'm considering buying more. I'm very happy with this purchase." β€”E. Brown

    Price: $35.67 (available in three colors)

    4. An adjustable-height, antique-style pharmacy lamp to complete your turn-of-the-century sanatorium aesthetic.

    Promising review: "Beautiful and cool lamp. I love the color and the adjustable height. It really gives a contemporary but vintage vibe in our office/guest bedroom/sewing room. I was very happy to see that the base is weighted very well, so it will not tip over. We needed a multi-purpose room to look modern with a mix of vintage since we have modern furniture and antiques in this room. This floor lamp pulls the whole look together! Thank you so much for such a great lamp at an affordable price!" β€”Ducky

    Price: $69.95

    5. A tripod LED lamp with a mid-century modern feel (and this-century modern energy efficiency).

    Promising review: "Super easy to put together, seriously, less than five minutes. And it looks BEAUTIFUL. It brightens up the room and gives it a stylish upgrade. The legs are slightly lighter than in the photo, but I'm sure the wood will age nicely." β€”Rob Gomez

    Price: $86.99

    6. An adorable ceramic owl-shaped lamp, because even nocturnal animals need a little light.

    Promising review: "Easy five stars. I am a huge owl lover and this lamp is just so adorable. It’s very good quality and gives off great white light! I bought it to go on my vanity to give me some extra light, when I do my makeup. I love it so much that I’m going to buy a second one, to match!" β€”hbezio

    Price: $29.95

    7. A rechargeable, wireless 3D moon lamp that will bring a little outer space to your inner space.

    Promising review: "I wondered if this moon would be as cool as it looked online. IT IS! My eight-year-old nephew loves it and says it is the coolest gift he has ever received. I needed something special for him, as I had to move across country from him and it breaks my heart to be so far from him. The moon is to help him remember that no matter how far away we are, when the moon is out we can both see it and he can think of me. Perfect." β€”Geneva2168

    Price: $31.99+ (available in two sizes)

    8. A gooseneck floor lamp, a sleek light source that will fit right in with a wide variety of decor.

    Promising review: "Love it! Great price and great quality. The base is very sturdy! The lamp is cute and neutral. Goes well in any room and decor style. Great for a little corner, next to a armchair. Absolutely recommended." β€”VLIFE

    Price: $39.99

    9. A floor lamp that's also shelves AND two USB ports, so at least something in your home will be a successful multi-tasker.

    Promising review: "I love my new shelf lamp. I turn it on in the evenings and it provides a great ambiance in my bedroom. I really love the electrical USB charge which comes with it, which makes charging my electronic devices very easy. I would highly recommend this product." β€”Mzprez41

    Price: $69.99

    10. A glass pendant light to help you see clearly (and provide a nice showcase for your Edison bulbs).

    Promising review: "I love this light! Exactly what I was looking for to get a industrial look for my dining room. The light was relatively easy to install for someone who knows what they are doing. I love that you can adjust the cord length without having to cut wires." β€”Justina Krzemien

    Price: $32.95

    11. A pup-shaped, dimmable touch lamp for a light source that's also the goodest boy.

    Promising review: "This thing is seriously cute and unique. Never seen anything like it before. Easy to adjust the dog into positions you want using the provided tools. Its more of a soft-light than a bright light but I like that. To turn on the light you just gently tap the head of the 'dog.' Makes a great night-light for a kids room!" β€”James M.

    Price: $49.50 (available in three colors)

    12. A wrought iron lamp with a Tiffany-style shade, because if loving stained glass is wrong, I don't wanna be (Frank Lloyd W)right.

    Promising review: "I really can't find the words for how much I love this. The lighting in my kitchen isn't great, especially over the island. We do everything on the island β€” chop, roll, mix, eat, do homework, pay bills and play Legos. Rather than deal with replacing the pendant lighting, I bought this light and stuck it in the middle of the island. It not only provides enough light, it turned out to be so gorgeous that everyone comments when they see it. The light it puts out is warm but not too yellow. Very, very happy." β€”M. Sullivan

    Price: $149.99

    13. An adjustable brass-finish floor lamp that you can probably convince people you bought at a fancy antique store.

    Promising review: "What a bargain! Many other mid-century modern style lamps are either over-priced, or cheaply made for its trendiness. But this lamp is very durable, affordable and stylish and also easy to assemble." β€”Su Kang

    Price: $39.99

    14. A leather-upholstered lamp to add a pop of color (also: light!) to your space.

    Promising review: "This lamp is darn snazzy. I recommend it highly. Looks great in a corner on a black desk. The leather base doesn't show through that well in the photo or in the description β€” it makes the lamp. It has a matte look so it adds warmth. The shade is great β€” it's a little more cream than white for my item anyway, and they look great together. I'd buy more in a minute if I had any room for them. Two would make great end table lamps. Just the best." β€”QuintessentiallyYours

    Price: $24.99 (available in ten colors)

    15. An iron tree lamp to give your living room those vintage industrial vibes.

    Promising review: "I love this lamp. The light bulbs that are included are tinted, so they're very antique looking, and the light is very soft and romantic. The lamp is fairly easy to assemble. The instructions could have been a bit clearer, but even with my confusion, I assembled it in about 15 minutes. It looks great in my dining area. I highly recommend it!" β€”Bshorty

    Price: $83.99

    16. A bright, adjustable metal pendant light to cheer up your ceiling.

    Promising review: "Vibrant color. We installed three above our kitchen island and it was simple to do. They're a nice light source as well as a fun design feature. We love them!" β€”G.M.

    Price: $31.99+ (available in red and yellow)

    17. A pretty geometric table lamp for a little extra dimension with your light.

    Promising review: "Perfect sized lamp for our new bedroom! We wanted something small but elegant, and we got both!" β€”M. Whitmire

    Price: $40.99+ (available in two colors)

    18. A clever lamp/side table combo with two USB ports and way more storage space that your average light source.

    Promising review: "I love this table lamp! I keep it in my reading nook, as the shelf below is wonderful for books, and the top part is great space for the book I'm currently in the middle of. Also handy to charge my cell phone while I'm reading so I don't have to go far if I get a call or text!" β€”Queen Joscasta

    Price: $69.99

    19. A French candlestick lamp that looks like it might come alive and sing a duet with Lumière at any moment.

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful, high quality lamp! It's actually better than I expected it to be. Very pretty, not difficult to assemble, is nice and sturdy, and has a lovely lampshade and a nice long cord. I'm delighted with my purchase :)" β€”Witch Cheryl

    Price: $99.99

    20. A shiny mosaic lamp, because sometimes you need a little sparkle (and other times you need a lot of sparkle).

    Promising review: "Very pretty lamp! Matches my bedroom decor and sparkles nicely while giving off just the right amount of light. Perfect size for my nightstand. Would definitely recommend this product!" β€”Kendra

    Price: $20.12+ (available in four colors)

    21. An accent lamp that a little birdie told me was the epitome of understated cuteness.

    Promising review: "I love this lamp! I wanted something small for the end of my counter top. Not only does it provide the soft light I wanted, it draws comments from everyone who sits at the counter. It's as pretty as it is functional." β€”Kindle Customer

    Price: $29.95

    22. A dimmable LED floor lamp with a modern art look, which emits light from its entire surface area.

    Promising review: "I love this lamp. It's such an interesting design and provides a LOT of luminescence for our living room/entertainment area. Great for apartments for sure (and cat friendly to boot!)." β€”Andrew P. Thielmann

    Price: $59.99

    23. An three-bulbed arc lamp with faux-crystal lampshades to turn you into a Real Housewife of Your Apartment.

    Promising review: "The photo of this lamp online didn't do it justice. It is gorgeous! I purchased this lamp as a Christmas gift for my daughter for her apartment and she put it in her bedroom all I can say is, stunning. She was very pleased with it and so was I. I'm thinking of purchasing one for myself." β€”Jazygigi

    Price: $105.57

    24. A sleek, minimalist LED desk lamp with five brightness modes and a USB port, because it means business.

    Promising review: "BEST LAMP EVER! I bought their very first black lamp a few years ago, my whole family really LOVED it, it is still going strong after daily 5+ hours of use. I have bought a few new lamps from this company, they lower the prices, and kept the modern design and the premium quality. Light color and brightness is easy adjustable, and the lamp can be lowered and raised at many angle too." β€”R.A

    Price: $39.99 (available in black and silver)

    25. A mini table lamp perfect for adding a lot of color to a little space.

    Promising review: "I was a little scared it was going to be cheap but it's great! It's very small but it fits perfectly on a little night stand or end table and it's actually really bright! Lights up a whole room!" β€”Andrea

    Price: $9.16+ (available in six colors)

    26. A retro brass Sputnik chandelier that will both steal the spotlight and be the spotlight.

    Promising review: "It looks amazing! Way nicer than I had anticipated because of how reasonable the price was. HIGHLY recommended." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $108.99

    27. A Himalayan salt lamp whose health claims may be dubious, but whose pretty pink glow is 100% legit.

    Allegedly these emit negative ions or something? Which are good? IDK, but they look cool!

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS LAMP!!! I have this in our bedroom and absolutely love it. The soft glow is beautiful. Love that it has a dimmer on it. Just a really great salt lamp." β€”Madison Gibson

    Price: $18.49+ (available in small and large sizes)

    28. An adjustable arc lamp with burlap shades, smart outlet compatibility, and β€” if I may β€” a casual elegance.

    Promising review: "This lamp is so beautiful! We needed a lamp for our dining room and it's perfect. I love it! It's relatively easy to put together. It looks like it cost a lot more money than it does; the burlap type shades put out a wonderful glow. I'm very happy with this lamp and I definitely recommend it." β€”christine zamora
