Amazon is undeniably convenient—practically every item sold on the online marketplace is available for next-day shipping. All that handiness comes as a cost though, usually in the form of a seemingly endless scroll of good (and sometimes not so good) options that make it tricky to land on the perfect option. Recently, though, Amazon has been majorly stepping up their decor game: Between up-and-coming brands and the retail giant’s own in-house lines, Amazon suddenly has us spoiled for choice with surprisingly chic options. That plethora of high design has reached the lighting department too. From bedside lamps to pendants and chandeliers, Amazon is suddenly the hottest place to grab bright ideas. We paged through thousands of products to find these 11 options illuminating our world.

If You’re a Justina Blakeney Fan

Bohemian done right with an eco-friendly twist thanks to rattan—a naturally renewable material. This pendant light would be perfect in every room but especially so radiating above your dining room table for a more relaxed look. It’s even Jungalow-approved and is one of Justina Blakeney’s must-haves.

If Your Favorite Artist Is Georgia O’Keeffe

This table lamp is a touch contemporary with a dash of southwestern with the Georgia O’Keeffe desert color scheme. The concrete base is a modern, unusual update to the same usual table lamp.

If You Want to Keep Things Modern

$39.99 for this stunner?! That’s a steal for a modern brass and matte white lamp, making it the perfect accent piece for any desk.

If You Swear By a Globe Lamp

A favorite of our very own EIC Jessica Romm Perez, this globe lamp is a fresh take on the classic staple and looks much more luxe than its under-$50 price tag. Accessorize any (and every) bedside table.

If You Want a Touch of Color

You may just see a lamp, but we eye damn-near perfection with this dome-shaped beauty. The matte blue finish isn’t for everyone, but don’t worry–it also comes in white, black, and tan.

If You Want to Keep Things Mid-Century

As the name hints, this iconic mid-century chandelier was inspired by the first man-made satellite to orbit the earth in 1957, Sputnik. This celestial piece is certainly a conversation-starter and will look “out of this world” in your kitchen or dining room.

If You Need a Sconce with a Twist

This piece turns a globe light on its head—literally. A minimalist piece takes an unusual twist with the matte black backplate, adding a bold, eye-grabbing touch to a simple design.

If You Want It to Be Sculptural

How great is this postmodern pendant? The unconventional, sculptural piece can stand on its own or be the showpiece of the room, especially when paired together. It also comes in black, white, slate gray, and moss green, in case you want to mix and match.

If You Need a Special Floor Lamp

This sleek, minimalist floor lamp is the type of contemporary piece that you feel so inspired by, you’d decorate an entire room around it to ensure it gets the attention it so rightly deserves.

If You’re Into Modern Farmhouse

Amazon’s modern farmhouse brand Stone & Beam has created a classically chic twist on the classic chandelier with a warm brass finish and a large lampshade.

If You Want a Work of Art

For the Mondrian fans out there, this playfully contemporary lamp acts as a work of art on its own in an otherwise subtle room. Beyond the throwback design, the lamp itself is quite powerful, acting as an ultra-bright, glare-free light that is fantastic for reading.
