You Can’t Go Wrong With a Gourd Lamp

You Can’t Go Wrong With a Gourd Lamp

In my opinion, decorating can come easy if you just realize that you can’t go wrong with a few elements.

Today, I’m making your life easy.  Just purchase a gourd lamp and call it a day!  I’m telling you, no matter what your home looks like, you can’t go wrong with a gourd lamp!

What is a gourd lamp?   They are lamps that are ceramic, sculptural and modern:

Designers use these lamps all the time (open  up an interior design magazine and I guarantee you’ll see at least a few!).

Why are they so popular?  First of all, these lamps work with virtually any style and any aesthetic (how easy does THAT make your life?).

These lamps also bring a room up to today – they are sleek and have clean lines.

And my favorite part is that you can find gourd lamps at ALL different price points.

On the higher end, this is the gorgeous “Nelson” lamp from Jonathan Adler, priced at $595:

You can also get it in white for a bit cheaper.

A great example of high-mid-range lamp is the red Nia table lamp for about $240 from Lulu & Georgia:

And possibly my favorite part of the gourd lamp is that you can get the same look for a fraction of the price.  

Check out this gorgeous silver Eva “double gourd” from Wayfair.com for about $90:

And on Overstock.com, I am obsessed with these mossy green lamps that are only $80 each!!

For really great prices, check out your local Target and Home Goods for gourd lamps as well.  That’s where you’ll find lamps for less than $60, and still really beautiful.

For those of us overwhelmed by all the decorating choices out there, isn’t it nice to know you can just pick ONE LAMP and you know that it will work?
