Lighting is such an important part of home decor. It can make (or break) the vibe whether it’s a chill night at home or you’re hosting a dinner party. We turned to our editors to see which lamps, pendants, and candles are perfect for setting the mood.Elaina Sullivan, Style EditorPanthella Table lamp by Vernor Panton, Louis Paulson
"Buying vintage is my preference for most home decor items, especially when it comes to lighting. I walk flea markets when I'm traveling and always ask for the manufacturer of pieces I like, so I can research similar styles. It's also helpful to understand the shapes and qualities of the classic pieces to be better informed for buying reproductions. I'm very Postmodern in my style and my favorite source at the moment is Bi-Rite Studio
. Everything they have is perfect! If you find yourself in Paris, that flea
also has a killer selection of the classics. On my last trip, I bought a small 1920s French black opaline orb lamp that makes me so happy.
I also have a few go-to designers that I'm always hunting for and looking to for inspiration, including Louis Poulsen
, one of the most classic Danish lighting brands and home to many design legends. The Panthella Table lamp by Vernor Panton
is one of my all-time favorites—designed in 1971 and oh-so-fresh. On a recent trip to Stockholm, I found one of these beauties
at a thrift shop for super cheap. I love that it's painted blush on the inside; it makes everything rosy!"
