I’ve been sourcing a lot of lighting lately and one of my go to sources for affordable and stylish lighting is Ballard Designs. Ballard’s mix of lighting ranges from
traditional styles to trendy pieces. I came across 4 awesome overhead lights while shopping their site recently and wanted to share them with you.
Four Overhead Lights To Love
1 // The Gigi Pendant from Ballard Designs is such a fun take on a traditional quatrefoil design and the brass and cream color combination is just stunning. I would hang this in a dining room, bedroom or office space. And it would look great in a small foyer space too. On sale for $246.75.
2 // Gone are the days of the flush mount ‘boob light”. Now you can find super chic flush mount lights to fit any decor style. I am especially fond of this Starburst Ceiling Mount Light and think it would look fabulous in a powder room, kids room or hallway? On sale for $ 261.75.
3 // If you’re looking for a causal lighting style, the Kiki Pendant with its bohemian vibe would be a great option. A pair of these wold look stunning in a sunroom, over a kitchen island or in a causal breakfast eating space. On sale for $111.74.
tip: you could probably paint this if you wanted a more colorful statement.
4 // The Urchin 12 Light Pendant is one of my favorite takes on this popular Sputnik design trend. I love the slender arms and antique gold finish and would hang it in a foyer, office space or large bedroom. On sale for $ 674.25 which is a savings of over $220.
Lamp Plus is the nation’s largest lighting retailer. They carry a wide range of lighting from all of the top brands in the country. I love shopping them for chandeliers, table lamps and outdoor lighting. In addition to lighting, they also sell home decor and furnishings.
Overstock is one of the best sources for affordable and stylish interior lighting. And this is a great place to shop If you like crystal lights. This gorgeous chandelier would look awesome in a walk-in closet or over a garden tub.
HomeGoods has always been a great source for affordable table lamps and the last two years they have really upped their style game. Their assortment is constantly changing so if you see something you love, buy it.
Crate and Barrel is our source for lighting with a modern, contemporary design aesthetic. By hovering over the lighting image on their website, you can also see what the light looks like lit up. This brass desk lamp is one of my all time favorites.
Pottery Barn has a good selection of moderate-priced, transitional lighting that will work with just about any design style This tapered metal flush mount light is a classic design that would look great in a hallway or mud room.
Rejuvenation has an online store as well as several retail stores across the country. Their speciality is reproduction antique, Victorian and period-authentic lighting. The story of how the company was started is pretty interesting–you can read it here.
School House Electric is much more than a lighting company. Their portfolio of products include furniture, decorative accessories, kitchen & bath products and hardware. The Satellite Sconce is one of my favorites from their lighting collection.
Target really does have it all when it comes to lighting, from table lamps and floor lamps to outdoor lighting and desk lamps. In addition to selling their private label Threshold collection, Target also sells popular brands like Uttermost and Safavieh. tip: always check their pricing on-line because I’ve noticed several styles that are cheaper on-line than in-store.
Shades of Light is another online source with a vast array of lighting options. Their contemporary collection is my favorites and I’ve got my eye on this light fixture.
Ballard Designs has a nice collection of lights and their price points are very affordable. They have a great selection of glass and ceramic table lamps and I also like their lantern styles. Ballard’s is also my source lighting accessories like cord covers and chandelier chain sleeves.
As you think about the lighting in your home, look at it like you do jewelry to an outfit. Stylish lighting can be the finishing touch to your decor.
