You heard it here first: Statement lighting is officially trending. And whether you’re on the hunt for a very specific eye-catching piece or just looking to change up those bedroom sconces, the right light fixtures truly can make or break the look of a room. Not to mention, they’re a pretty important functional part of your space.
But we also understand that shopping for lighting isn’t exactly the first thing on the list when it comes to fun decor, so we took to some of our favorite designers for their sage advice. Take it from the pros: These are the places to shop for affordable lighting that will shed a light on your chic decor—literally.
Cedar and Moss
Sarah Wittenbraker loves the modern and mid-century lighting found at Cedar and Moss. The minimalist designs fit seamlessly into any decor. And given the wide range of options selection at affordable prices, you’re sure to find something to suit your personal style.
Designer Heather Bullard loves to shop Etsy for one-of-a-kind, handmade pieces such as basket pendants or wall sconces. Different vendors serve up different styles and prices ranges, making it super easy to snag that perfect statement piece.
Several of our design experts listed this nationwide lighting retailer as their go-to place for pretty much any and all of their lighting needs. Just ask Shavonda Gardner, Robin Wilson, or Joy Cho, and they’ll rave about all the styles available. One of the best parts? Lamps Plus has free shipping on most orders, cutting extra costs and saving you money on bigger projects.
Amber Lewis is a proponent of finding design-forward options through Rejuvenation, where you can easily shop by room, function, or style. You can also choose from one of their curated collections, such as a section dedicated solely to unique antiques. Either way, Rejuvenation’s user-friendly online shop and extensive selection has something for everyone.
Don’t sleep on a big box retailer like Target for cool lamps, sconces, and pretty much every potential lighting need you may have. If you can sort through all the (seemingly endless) products, Katrina Blair finds that you can discover some really stylish options that you’d never guess came from a store like Target. Stephanie Watkins of Casa Watkins Living agrees, telling us she’s found some surprisingly great pieces in her local store.
We can always count on World Market to deliver when it comes to a wide selection of quality finds, and Claire Zinnecker agrees. Check out their lighting and accessories section for the best in lamps and sconces—a particularly great source for any globally inspired decorators out there.
