As the days get shorter and darker, nothing says “take that, winter” like a fabulous lamp to light up your room and banish the sad outside. Among the thousands and thousands of options are everything from animals to monograms to a totally blank slate. Let the light shine through!
Our favorite shades (when it comes to lamps) include this calming, wraparound view of Belfast, Maine, with still sailboats and a tranquil ocean harbor:
For those with artsier taste, this Oriental design of a plum blossom in spring is a nod to paintings from an earlier era — elegant, simple and always stately:
And our favorite might be the Create Your Own Custom lamp, a choose-your-own adventure in style. Start with a blank lampshade, add the artwork, photography or graphic of your choice, choose your trim and base and make it totally yours:
We hope these shades help light up your winter. Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine …
