Lamps are one of my favorite winter survival tools at home. They add visual and physical warmth to any room, making short dark days easier to tolerate. Lately I’ve noticed more crystal lamps popping into my feed lately (as well as their budget-friendly acrylic counterparts), and it’s a look I’ve always loved! Today I wanted to share some ideas for styling crystal table lamps around the house, which is honestly quite easy- thanks to their transparent form. They really look good styled in any room! Click through for some quick tips and a big roundup of my current favorites…
My favorite thing about a crystal lamp is the finish difference they bring to a vignette. They have the ability to capture & reflect the light in such a beautiful way- that almost appears glossy. They add a nice contrast to more traditional finishes like wood, metal, and stone. If you happen to have a lot of that going on within a vignette, adding a transparent material like crystal could really elevate the look.

I rounded up some really gorgeous options of all price points. From vintage handblown lamps that are pretty spendy to super budget acrylic options (I believe the lowest is $9!), I tried to include something for everyone. I’d love to hear your favorites from the mix! I have #2, #8, and #15, and can attest to their heavy quality.
One that I forgot to include in the roundup is a favorite from our Tuesday Made shop! The Nicole table lamp is the perfect size, in my opinion. It’s easy to style on any surface and is a best-seller for good reason. Jordan and I both have one… the photo above is her kitchen. I love a lamp in the kitchen- we use ours like a nightlight during the evening hours. The good thing about crystal & acrylic- they’re easy materials to wipe clean.
To get your wheels turning, I wanted to share a brainstorming list of potential places you could style a table lamp this season…
- on an entry table
- on the kitchen counter
- on a bathroom vanity
- on a console table
- on a kitchen island
- on a side table
- on a sideboard, buffet, or credenza
- on the mantel
- on a bedside table or nightstand
- on a dresser
- on a desk
- on a deep window sill
- on a shelf or built-in
Local (to me) design shop, Alice Lane Home, is well known for their designer crystal lamps. You can use my code for 15% off if any of those caught your eye… it’s TUESDAY15.
I hope this post inspires you to switch on & style more lamps this winter. They really make a big difference in regards to my seasonal mood! I seldomly use our overhead lighting… it often feels too harsh or bright, whereas lamps create the perfect glow & warm ambiance. Do you also have quite a few table lamps scattered throughout your home?
