You’ve heard people talk about swapping out their throw blankets and pillows for fresh options as a new season approaches. But while everyone else is fussing over their sofa, you’ll find designer Shea McGee toying with her table lamps. For her fall Target collection, she has introduced a large assortment of mix-and-match light fixtures. Specifically there are six base and six shade styles, and they’re all completely interchangeable. “From a simple tapered shape to a playful gingham print and scallops, it’s easy to find the perfect look for any room,” the designer shared on Studio McGee’s site

Really, you can’t go wrong with any arrangement. The idea is to purchase your favorites and, when you tire of their initial placement, move them around. It seems like a small thing, but a quick shade substitute can totally change the way you see a room. Here are a few of the pairings we love the most. 

For a Cottagecore Moment

Gingham Pleated Lamp Shade, Target ($15)

Ceramic Lamp Base, Target ($30)

The brown gingham pleated shade will pick up the muddy olive green tones in this ceramic base nicely.

For Year-Round Beach Vibes

Wicker Lamp Shade, Target ($15)

Turned Wood Stick Lamp Base, Target ($30)

Turned wood chairs and wicker tables are beach house staples. Combine them in a single lamp form and you can get that feel-good energy for way less. 

For a Nook in Need of Curves

Scallop Pleated Lamp Shade, Target ($15)

Round Faux Wood Lamp Base, Target ($30)

If a shelf or console table is looking stiff and you can’t quite figure out why, it might be because there’s not enough shape or texture happening. Pairing this scalloped shade with a faux wood ball base will solve for boring corners.

For Classing Up a Bar or Nightstand

Taper Linen Lamp Shade, Target ($15)

Stick Lamp Base, Target ($30)

When a streamlined taper shade and an ultra-thin brass base meet, they look like they belong on the table of a fancy restaurant.
