On Monday, I shared a snippet of our Tuesday Made office on Instagram, along with my favorite tiny kitchen lamp for easy styling (pictured above). I ended up with a LOT of messages in regards to that little lamp… many of you loved the look and were asking about different finishes, some of you were curious how the clip shade works, and a handful of people were appalled by the price (ha). It’s definitely an investment fixture, but a lamp I’ll keep forever. Anyway, today I wanted to share a giant roundup of similar lamps with a spherical base- of all different price points and styles. Ranging anywhere from $12-$500, I packed a lot of good looking table lamps into this roundup! I also bought the least expensive option in hopes of sharing an easy DIY to elevate the look, so stay tuned for that. Click through for the lamps, inspiration, and some ideas for styling…
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- I love a classic lamp on the kitchen counter. We use our French bouillotte lamp on our countertop every evening. The form of these lamps really lend themselves to styling in this type of setting because they break up the hard edges & corners you often find in a kitchen. With that said, they can be styled anywhere in your home- they’re just really versatile in terms of shape and scale. Jordan styled our Nicole lamp from the Tuesday Made shop on her kitchen countertop and it’s so charming there (pictured above)!
You can also get creative with these lamps thanks to their simple form… if the height isn’t quite right, I like to add a pedestal beneath the base to slightly elevate the fixture- like I’ve done above. They’re easy to dress up or down, and are very simple to style. They pretty much look good anywhere. Ready to see my finds?

I’d love to hear your favorites from the roundup! I have #3, #8, #13 (pictured above- I spray painted it), and #20, so I can attest to their quality and beauty. There are lots of good options!
Don’t be afraid to dress up a lamp in an effort to make it better fit your aesthetic. The lamp in the photo above was a neon yellow color, so I spray painted it for Laurie Anne’s bedroom makeover a few years back. Shades are also easy to swap! Those little changes make a big difference.
Of course the best part about scattering lamps throughout your home is the soft glow they put off during evening hours or darker days. I live for lamps & candles during summer thunderstorms! There is nothing I love more than a cozy home all lit up on a gloomy day or dark night. I hope you’re having a great week so far. We’re still plugging away at the camper, but haven’t be able to paint the cabinet doors yet thanks to rain & wind. Here’s to hoping today is the day, so we can begin reassembling things.
