15 Snazzy Lamps Under $15


By Eva Recinos As much as we understand the value in making major purchases, we also love the challenge of finding stylish items for less than you might expect. And every decorator knows a trade secret about working on a budget: that one of the best ways to save is to look for accents at lower prices. An accent lamp works as the perfect functional and budget-friendly piece. And choosing the right lamp is about more than lighting up a space — a chic one can also serve as a focal point in your overall layout. In the interest of decorating on a budget (and being numbers-heavy), we set out on a mission to find 15 stylish lamps for less than $15. Check out our picks: Image via Bed Bath & Beyond.

If you want a more solid look that still stands out, experiment decorating with fun colors. These bright and unique finds are a steal. It might seem risky to buy a neon pink lamp, but at less than $5, we figure it's worth a shot. You never know what one color might do for your decor.

Buying an affordable lamp doesn't have to mean investing in a boring one. For less than $15, these lamps will definitely do more than just light up your desk — they're a great stand-out accent to add some pop to your decor. The graphic and bold patterns would look great in a neutral-toned room or with other daring patterns.

basic and functional

Sometimes you just need a lamp that helps you read and doesn't clash with your decor. In that case, we found some solid black lamps that are practical and minimal. One interesting item is the clip-on lamp, an easy way to move your light source with you.
