I like a white table lamp and I especially love the glow of a white glass table lamp base.

White glass lamps are luminous and light yet opaque enough to feel substantive.  A staple item that can transcend decor styles and trends.  Contrast nicely against colored walls and blends seamlessly in white rooms.  Something to consider if thinking about adding a little light to your home.

Here's today's CHEAP TO CHIC!

Do you like the idea of a white glass lamp? Could you use it in your home? If not, what kind of lamps do you like...ceramic, porcelain, metal? What lights you up?

Happy Monday!

  1. I LOVE glass lamps. Not crazy over the gourds, but definitely glass lamps. Channeling Jan Showers and what-not. And I loved this post, so awesome how you did this line up. My faves are the second and the last. Dont you thik everyone could probably use a pair?


  2. I love double gourd lamps and would like to buy a black ceramic one for my living room and a white ceramic one for my bedroom. For me, the double gourd shape is perfect for tying together my antique, organic and modern decor choices.

  3. I do like the idea of a white glass lamp base... but want to know where those star burst mirrors came from...

  4. After reading your post... I think I'll go for a classic porcelain lamp...

  5. Gorgeous lamps! I recently purchased two lamps with the base and shade cast from a single piece of clear glass, but I love the idea of the white, too!
