Clear Bedside Lamps

In bedrooms, I really love using lighting you can see through. It adds "lightness" to the room and also brings in a bit of elegance. (Especially if you use crystal!) I decided to go this direction with our master bedroom.. a little more on that below.

First, here are some great rooms with glass or crystal bedside lamps:

There are a lot of great options out there for glass and crystal lighting.

If money were no object, I'd gladly take any pair of these from Circa Lighting:


$588



$483




$1,050



$525


Here are some great affordable options for those of us on a budget!


Robert Abbey - $160
[ to the trade, can be purchased through me ]





Crate & Barrel - $90

And last but not least, the extremely affordable option I chose for our master bedroom:


JCP - $64

I am so happy with my JCP lamp purchase. Here they are on our skirted nightstands:



In case you are wondering about the status of the master bedroom design, it's coming along slowly but surely. I got the glass tops back from my glass cutter (as you can see). I also got two accent pillows for the room. I still have a lot to accomplish, though:

- Paint wood on the settee and have reupholstered
- Find & paint dresser (hopefully this will be taken care of this coming weekend! I want an antique/vintage piece so timing is tbd on this one)
- Find mirror for above dresser
- Art for above the bed (I'm comissioning this piece!)
- Install hardware on the closet doors
- Accessories

I cannot wait for the room to be finished! As I bring in each piece it makes me excited for the end result. This will be the first "finished" room in our first house, so it's pretty sentimental for me.

  1. We're looking for clear lamps for our nightstands too! With windows on either side of the bed I love how the lamps block a minimal amount of light and still look glamorous! We were hoping to find some rectangular ones like some of your inspiration pictures. Did you find any place to buy some like that?

  2. I like this post, not for the lamps, but for the pillows on the bed! I just got new bedding and I'm having major issues with the pillow situation. This was inspiring so thank you.

  3. I love those lamps from JcPenney, I actually just purchased a pair for my living room. I had the hardest time hunting them down because they were out of stock online and none of my local JcPenney's had them! I ended up purchasing the display lamp from 2 different stores for $40 each!

    I love clear lamps. I have a pair from Ballard Designs in my foyer. I wanted a pair of Lillian August, but the Ballards were so much cheaper. I also have a pair of lucite lamps in my bedroom that I adore and they came from Target, super cheap.

  12. So funny that you posted about these lamps today... I was looking at the C&B version, your JCP version, and another JCP version by Cindy Crawford. I need some for my console in my living room. You have great style. Can't wait to see your finished room!
