Nothing is better than getting a compliment on an affordable design element. We smile at the compliment and reply with something along the lines of, “Thanks, it’s from Target!” The “No way!” or “Are you kidding me?” that follows is music to our ears; proof that the affordable item looks the part, too.
With a little sleuthing, there are plenty of well-priced home items that only look expensive. Perhaps the best category of good looking items at affordable price-points is lighting. Plenty of brands have dreamt up awesome floor lamps, en mode pendant lights, and trendy desk lamps that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. So, without further ado, meet 15 super luxe lighting options that all ring in under $150. Fair warning, it’ll be hard to resist the urge to buy them all.
This sleek, clean, minimalist lamp has a lot to offer at a very low price tag. For one, this lamp illuminates in a surprising way. When you lift the lower ball attached to the cord, it attracts to the top ball (due to magnets inside each) creating a connection that then turns on the lamp. Separating the wooden balls turns the lamp off. This lamp is a cool conversation starter that also looks sleek, minimal, and more expensive than its price tag. What’s more is this lamp also has a USB plug to charge your various devices. If that isn’t a steal for just under $60, we’re not sure what is.
This modern lamp is super stylish and the perfect of-the-moment choice for a desk, dresser or nightstand that could use a little more illumination. Hard to believe that it rings in for under $100 with its chic metal base and glass lamp shade.
Okay, we need to take one quick moment to honor Target for their lighting collections. Their chic options look super luxe in person and sit at extremely affordable prices.
