For my first post let's talk about swing arm lamps. I live in Boston in a small apartment, but I am a believer in making any space your own. My bedroom is TINY, which means the only things in there are my bed, a small night table and a decorative chair. It has a cute chandelier, but if I need another light of some kind it can't really take up extra space on the night table. That's where I got the idea for a lamp on the wall. I immediately went to Pinterest for some in inspiration.￼
Urban Outfitters had some really affordable options with the two lamps on the left here and here. I have spotted the Eyeball Sconce in countless home tours online ever since I found it! IKEA's more industrial version at the top right was the best deal, but probably not quite the style I was looking for. Schoolhouse Electric and Supply Company had my favorite on the bottom right, but I think it's a bit out of my price range for a temporary space.
Needless to say I was pleased to see a lot of affordable options out there, so I can see how I like this style in my current space. What are your favorite places to get the look for less in interior design?
