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.

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.
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.

We need better lighting in our living room. It can get pretty dim.

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

Those outdoor accent chairs are such a great “plus”!

Really loving the outdoor stuff! I’ve purchased lighting from them before, but looks like I need to dig a little deeper on their site!

Dining room for sure.

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!

Our living room is desperate for an upgrade from old had-in-our-apartment-when-we-were-single mismatched lighting…!
Susan DobieJune 9, 2017 at 8:32 pm
Our living room is like a dungeon now that I got rid of an old halogen floor lamp. We need something new!
Crissie WoolardJune 9, 2017 at 9:15 pm
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!
ScrubberJune 10, 2017 at 9:44 pm
I love those lamps… They would be so good in my living room!
