10 Days of Design Crush Anniversary Giveaways: Day 7 Lamps Plus


Ten years ago this month I started Design Crush as a place to gather inspiration for my day job as a graphic designer, and five years ago it became my full-time job. To thank you all, as well as highlight some of my favorite sponsors from over the years, we’ll be hosting ten days of giveaways in celebration of ten years of this little site that could.


Sayner Black and Antique Brass Swing Arm Wall Lamp Set

Lamps Plus, the nation’s largest lighting retailer, has a rather deceiving name – because the Plus is quite impressive as well. Working with them over the years, I’ve added several pieces to my own home from several of the different lines Lamps Plus houses under their proverbial roof. And over the course of time a few lines began to separate themselves as I found myself going back to their pages when I was in need (or want) of something new.


Helene Ceramic Table Lamp

So, I thought I’d share my two favorite Lamps Plus brands with you.

First let’s talk about lighting since that’s what they’re known for, my favorite being 360 Lighting. What really draws me to this line is the breadth of their design offerings, which leans in the bohemian, mid-century, industrial direction. Table lamps, floor lamps, wall lamps, and pendants, they’ve got it all and in finishes that I’m drawn to like a moth to a flame. I have a pair of the Helene Ceramic Table Lamps above on the nightstands in my bedroom and love the texture they bring to the space. Lately I’ve been eyeing a replacement for the arc floor lamp in my living room and keep coming back to pharmacy lamps as a possible option. The Dawson below is number one on my list, and you really can’t beat the price!


Raleigh 17-inch Oil-Rubbed Bronze and Antique Brass Pendant


Dawson Antique Brass Pharmacy Floor Lamp


DelRay Bay Outdoor Accent Chairs Set

Now, let’s get on to the plus because it’s just as fantastic. Doing a quick inventory of my home I realize I own a bench, a bookcase, an armchair, two dining chairs, and a throw pillow from Lamps Plus. And that’s just on the inside! I may love the outdoor pieces even more, two of which are from Teal Island Designs. A few years back I picked up a set of red DelRay Accent Chairs (above), and they adorned my front porch before moving to the back deck this year to act as extra table seating. This spring I took full advantage of the current wicker trend by adding two Hyacinth Accent Tables (below) to the porch for plants. (More to come on that in the next week!) Teal Island’s pieces are made to be used, meaning they can take some wear and tear. Such an important quality when it comes to furniture that’s going to be exposed to the elements.


Kai Water Hyacinth Indoor-Outdoor Accent Table


Fletcher Adjustable Back Adirondack Chair


La Jolla 5-Piece Wicker Sectional Soft with Firepit

    I’d love better lighting in the bedroom for reading, maybe a couple of handsome scones on either side of the bed?

    My bedroom. I was just thinking this morning I need to take care of this, I broke my lamp knocking it over, and moved a lamp from the other room, but it doesn’t go with the decor. I love Lampsplus!

    My living room is definitely begging for some new lighting. Actually the lamps I currently have and are my grandmothers to they are quite old. Thank you so much for the chance to win and happy happy anniversary. Here’s to many more

    Oh my gosh–we’ve been searching for a well-priced mid-century light fixture for a room with a low ceiling FOREVER. (No luck so far, sadly.) This would be perfect!
