I hope you all had a great weekend! As I was doing laundry late last night, I flipped on the countertop lamp and realized how much I love having a warm, tiny table lamp in the space. It’s a trend we’re seeing more of, and I’m definitely excited about that. Small table lamps are beginning to show up in kitchens (including my own… I’ve been holding out on you!), on countertops, on consoles, and even on bathroom vanities. It’s a fun way to add ambience to any space- they’re not just for the living room! Click through for inspiration on how to style them in your own home, to see my kitchen lamp (plus my thoughts on that trend), and for a big roundup of my favorites.
I’ve always been a fan of using lamps and sconces in the evening, as opposed to harsh overhead lighting. It just feels more cozy! It has been exciting to see table lamps being used in unexpected ways in design lately. Let’s chat small lamps on a kitchen countertop or island… I’ve been seeing a LOT of this trend, and I have to say- I’m very into it. I pulled this hammered lamp out of my prop closet (do you remember where it used to live in our old living room?), cut the cord completely off, added a puck light (see my friend Gwen’s puck light tutorial here), and found a good place on the kitchen counter for it. Having lived with a lamp in the kitchen for a couple weeks now… I’ll admit, I actually really like it. I assumed it wouldn’t be very functional and could potentially get gross and greasy, but to my surprise- it really hasn’t. Emmett and I must be cleaner cooks than I expected. Aesthetically, I think it’s brilliant. Time will tell how long it stays here or how it holds up! I’m happy to be the guinea pig.

I found so many beautiful options in all shapes, colors, small sizes, and price points. I actually own #14, #16, and #18. There are others I’ve had my eye on for awhile now- like #2.
These would be great styled on a countertop, a vanity, a bar cart, console tables, nightstands, and more! They’re just really versatile.
Depending on the scale of your home or the room you’re decorating, sometimes a small lamp is the perfect solution to fill negative space or add balance & interest. The best part? It’s super functional! I love turning on our lamps at night. It gives our house such warm, cozy glow.
Remember last summer when I took a trip to Phoenix to makeover my best friend, Laurie Anne’s, master suite? We went shopping at HomeGoods and scored this little lamp. I spray painted it for her bedroom and loved it so much, I came back home to Salt Lake and visited three HomeGoods stores, just so I could have one of my own (that currently lives in the laundry room). Regardless, they’re great styling objects that make your home a bit brighter!
Have you also noticed a tiny table lamp trend? How about lamps in the kitchen? Do you have any favorites from the roundup? I hope you all have a wonderful week! We’re moving right along with our basement bathroom renovation and I can’t wait to share more.
